Renault says it is switching its attention to performance, having prioritised improving reliability across the opening part of 2015.

Renault was beset by mechanical problems during the preliminary phase of the campaign but has since enjoyed stronger reliability, albeit with its customers lagging behind rivals Mercedes and Ferrari.

"The results are nothing to write home about, but there are a number of positives to take away from the weekend," said Renault Sport managing director Cyril Abiteboul.

"For the third race in a row we have not experienced any reliability worries. Now we have this we can move our attention to performance, working with the teams to get the most from both the engine and chassis.

"As we have said before, we are playing the long game, so we need to keep our eyes on the future and not get distracted when the results do not come our way, as has been the case this weekend."
