Time. The great enemy of all motor racing operations. There's never enough of it to get what you want done; and it always takes too much of it to get round the track in the way you'd like.

The French manufacturer was the obvious whipping boy of the 2014 F1 season. Yes, Ferrari was in disarray too, but Renault's problems were more spectacularly dramatic, and amplified by the fact they sparked the downfall of the Red Bull team that dominated F1 for the previous four seasons.
