New Renault F1 boss... leaves Renault

Thierry Koskas, who was named as the new head of Renault's F1 programme, has quit the company before actually starting work.

In mid-November, Renault announced Koskas (right) had been appointed President of Renault Sport Racing, replacing Jerome Stoll, and would report directly to Carlos Ghosn, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Groupe Renault.
