Renault technical director Bob Bell will take over as team principal for the final four races of 2009, it was announced on Wednesday. It follows the recent departure of Flavio Briatore and Pat Symonds, who conspired with former driver Nelson Piquet to cause a deliberate crash in last years Singapore Grand Prix.

Bell will also assume the role of chief technical officer, while Jean-Francois Caubet, currently the teams director of marketing and communications, takes on the position of Managing Director. Both will report to Bernard Rey, President of the team.

Bell will attend all the remaining races of the season and will be the team's spokesperson on all sporting and technical matters.

Renault, who earlier this week received a two-year suspended ban from the sport, say they will be making no further comments on last years events in Singapore, stating that they are ‘now ready to concentrate on the future.
