A shared passion for motorsport brought Renault and the F1™ together in 1977.
35 years, 10 Drivers’ titles & 11 Constructors’ championships later and our passion for competition has never been stronger!
In 2013 Renault powers 4 racing teams, amounting to one third of the grid!
- Red Bull Racing: the 2012 world champions have been powered by Renault engines for the sixth season running (and for a further 4 years). During the Renault Sport F1 and Red Bull Racing Technology partnership extension, the two will work jointly to produce an engine that can be easily integrated into the new chassis. We have no doubt that Sebastian Vettel (world title holder) and Mark Webber will deliver again this season thanks to the RB8!
- Lotus F1 Team: Renault is supplying engines and technological support to the team that previously competed under the name Renault F1 Team and Lotus Renault GP in 2011, with whom it won two world championships in 2005 and 2006. The black and gold E20 is driven by Kimi Räikkönen and Romain Grosjean.
- Caterham F1 Team: ex-Team Lotus and Renault Sport F1 extend their engine deal until the end of 2013. The Team has a sound technological base with the Renault engine and Red Bull Technology transmission, as well as a KERS system provided by Renault Sport F1 and Red Bull Technology. The CT01 is driven by Charles Pic.
- Williams F1 Team: new partner in 2012, the original Anglo-French alliance enjoyed a hugely successful association between 1989 and 1997, yielding 4 Drivers’ and 5 Constructors’ titles and 63 race wins. The FW34 is driven by Pastor Maldonado and Valtteri Bottas.
Renault’s trackside expertise distinguishes it from other road car manufacturers. Renault’s long-term commitment to the pinnacle of motorsport allowed the brand to test new technologies in extreme conditions before introducing to its “Renault Sport” road car lines.
