Formula 1 engine manufacturer Renault released images of its eagerly awaited V6 turbo.

MONTREAL, Canada - Formula 1 engine supplier Renault has said it will "take stock of its recovery from an early-season technical crisis" this weekend for the 2014 Canadian GP.

Ahead of Round 7 of the 2014 season Renault said it would "complete the process" of fixing its troubled turbo V6/hybrid 'power unit' in Montreal.

Head of track operations for Renault, Remi Taffin, said: "At the start of the 2014 season we said we would be out of recovery mode and back on track from Canada onwards. In the previous four races we've introduced several upgrades - Montreal will give us the first full opportunity to see where we are versus the competition."


Unlike the Monaco GP, where ultimate engine power is not so important, Montreal's Gilles Villeneuve circuit is expected to particularly suit the field-leading Mercedes package.

Taffin agreed that Canada would be the "toughest challenge of the year so far" in terms of the demands on the engine.

He added: "Realistically we have to be humble but it will still be a very good test of how far we've come since the difficult winter testing period and how much work remains to be done."
