Not a new face to Formula 1, but in his most senior position to date. Eyes will be on Cyril to see how he delivers against his counterparts.
Abiteboul was educated at the Lycée Carnot and Lycée Chaptal high schools in Paris, and went on to study aeronautical engineering at Grenoble INP. In July 2014, after Abiteboul’s departure from the Caterham F1 team, Renault confirmed his return as Managing Director of Renault Sport F1.
