Organization Profile

The Renault F1 Team was born in 2002 with a single purpose: winning the FIA Formula One World Championship with a 100% Renault car. Drawing on a heritage of motorsport innovation that stretches back to Renault’s first Formula 1 race in 1977, and includes six world constructors’ championships during the 1990s when Renault supplied V10 engines to front-running F1 competitors, the team steadily grew in competitiveness thanks to a blend of performance, reliability, and technology reinforced by the engineering expertise of the Renault Group. The team reached the pinnacle of performance during the 2005 and 2006 seasons, winning the drivers’ and constructors’ championships in both seasons in an historic double-double achievement. With an exciting driver line-up and innovative technical package, the team approaches the new season determined to build on the promise shown last year and ready to fight at the front of the field once more.
