Renault has offered a first full look at the new RS20 as three teams hit the track to complete shakedowns in Barcelona.

The French manufacturer opted not to reveal their car during their 'season opener' event in Paris last week but instead, shared up-close teasers of different sections of their latest creation.

But as the team prepare for the start of official winter testing on Wednesday, Renault has taken advantage of a filming day to put 100km of mileage onto to their new car.

Joining them at the Spanish circuit was Williams, who posted studio images of their 2020 car, the FW43, early on Monday.


Simply being on track today is a good sign for the British team, who missed the start of testing last year and didn't run for the first time until the third day.

And with ambitions of rejoining the midfield after a terrible 2019, to get some early data will certainly do them no harm.

Finally, Haas is the third team to hit the track on Monday with the VF20, with Romain Grosjean given the honour behind the wheel.

Like Williams, every kilometre will be crucial for the American team, who finished a lowly ninth in the Constructors' standings last year.

This comes after McLaren also ran their new car for the first time in Barcelona on Sunday, leaving just Ferrari and Racing Point as the only two teams yet to turn a wheel.

In the case of the Scuderia, they are expected to conduct their own filming day on Tuesday, while Racing Point is officially launching their new car on Monday in Austria.
