Renault team personnel to work from home ahead of shutdown

Renault has asked team personnel to work from home ahead of the Formula 1 shutdown period as they 'enter into a phase of in-depth discussions with F1, the FIA and the other teams' over the next course of action.

Renault is the latest team to announce its shutdown plans due to the coronavirus pandemic, doing so from March 30, although the Enstone base will essentially be closed one week earlier as working from home becomes mandatory for employees.

"Working from home has been widespread for all employees able to do so at Viry-Châtillon," read a statement.

"Following measures taken by the French Government and implemented from Monday evening in France, Renault Sport Racing’s management has also decided to close Viry-Châtillon from the evening of Friday 20 March until Sunday 5 April inclusive.

"Working at home has been progressively implemented at Enstone and will be mandatory for all employees able to do so from Monday 23 March.
