about Renault

Renault are currently involved in Formula One as a constructor, under the name of Renault Sport Formula One Team. They have been associated with Formula One as both constructor and engine supplier for various periods since 1977. In 1977, the company entered Formula One as a constructor, introducing the turbo engine to Formula One in its first car, the Renault RS01. In 1983, Renault began supplying engines to other teams. Although the Renault team won races and competed for world titles, it withdrew at the end of 1985. Renault continued supplying engines to other teams until 1986, then again from 1989 to 1997.

Renault returned to Formula One in 2000 when it acquired the Enstone-based Benetton Formula team (formerly Toleman Motorsport). In 2002 Renault re-branded the team as "Renault F1 Team" and started to use Renault as their constructor name, winning both the Drivers' and Constructors' Championships in 2005 and 2006.

For the 2011 season the team competed under the name Lotus Renault GP but retained the Renault constructor name. In 2012, the team changed their constructor name to Lotus and operated as Lotus F1 Team until the end of 2015, when they returned to the control of Renault as a works manufacturer.

Renault has also supplied engines to other teams, including Red Bull Racing (2007–2015), Benetton Formula (1995–1997, 2001) and Williams (1989–1997, 2012–2013). In addition to its two own F1 World Constructors' Championships (2005, 2006) and two Drivers' Championships, as an engine supplier, Renault has contributed to nine other World Drivers' Championships. It has collected over 160 wins as engine supplier, ranking third in Formula One history.

Last week Haas lost its appeal against Romain Grosjean's disqualification from the Italian Grand Prix, which was triggered by a protest from Renault, its rival for fourth place in the constructors' championship. The Italian GP result briefly lifted Haas above Renault but the DSQ knocked the American team back, while strong results for Renault across F1's United States-Mexico double-header has ...

The Spaniard found out over the summer that he was being replaced by Daniel Ricciardo for 2019, but wasted little time in sorting out a deal to switch to McLaren. Although being out of his current outfit could have prompted Sainz to ease off, he says the situation actually helped inspire him to push harder and deliver the four points-scoring finishes he has had since the summer ...

Sainz finished third behind the two Red Bulls in both FP1 and FP2, outpacing the Ferrari and Mercedes cars that have normally been out of reach for the Renault RS18.

Honda's work with Red Bull sister outfit Toro Rosso has shown signs of promise in 2018, with Pierre Gasly taking the best result of its F1 return to date with fourth in the Bahrain Grand Prix. Its latest specification engine helped Brendon Hartley qualify sixth for Honda's home race at Suzuka ahead of his team-mate, leading Renault driver Carlos Sainz Jr to admit Honda's gains were ...

Renault has come under increased pressure from Haas in the battle for fourth place in the Formula 1 constructors' standings, with the exclusion of Romain Grosjean at Monza, which remains under appeal, giving it some breathing space. Renault scored only 10 points in the first five races after the summer break, but in Austin Nico Hulkenberg and Carlos Sainz finished sixth and seventh. The ...

Sainz started 11th and ran wide exiting Turn 1, but went on to finish sixth ahead of the Force India and Haas drivers. The Spaniard served his penalty during his pitstop on lap 24 of 56, but it did not cost him any positions. Haas boss Gunther Steiner complained that it took took too long for the stewards to react. “Our team manager will bring it to the Sporting Working Group,” ...

The test is the only opportunity for drivers who are changing camps to gain on-track experience with their new teams before proper 2019 testing kicks off in February. For those drivers making 'friendly' moves, such as Charles Leclerc to Ferrari, Pierre Gasly to Red Bull and George Russell to Williams, testing for their new teams is a no-brainer. However, Red Bull has turned down Renault's ...

As reported by Motorsport.com, Renault boss Cyril Abiteboul believes his company has been collateral damage in the arms race between Mercedes and Ferrari in F1 this season. He said Renault will bring a new engine design next season as it bids to eliminate its deficit, having trailed Mercedes since the V6 turbo-hybrid era began in 2014. Verstappen’s Red Bull team is switching from Renault ...

The Toro Rossos of Brendon Hartley and Pierre Gasly both made Q3 at Suzuka, but in the race they slipped out of the top 10, while Sainz moved up to 10th to claim the final point. “I think in qualifying, it’s difficult to say,” said Sainz when asked if Honda is now ahead of Renault. “In the race definitely not, I don’t think we’re behind Honda on race pace. "I managed to overtake ...

Although there had been suggestions that the French car manufacturer would be using its latest Spec-C version as the basis of its 2019 power unit, it has now revealed that a total overhaul is being worked on at its Viry-Chatillon base. Renault F1 managing director Cyril Abiteboul said that the decision to go for an all-new engine was taken because gains were being limited by the current ...

Amid growing signs that engine budgets are ramping up as a result of the battle between F1's current four manufacturers, Renault thinks that spending requirements are now getting to the point where they are hard to justify to parent companies. Renault F1's managing director Cyril Abiteboul says that the huge investment rival Honda has made to get its engine programme back on track is proof of ...

The French car manufacturer started the 2018 campaign strongly, and appeared to have established itself as the leading team behind the top three outfits before the summer break. But its recent form has fallen away, and at the Japanese Grand Prix last weekend, Nico Hulkenberg said the team was no longer quick enough to fight its main rivals. Renault F1's managing director Cyril Abiteboul says ...

Renault has occupied best-of-the-rest spot in the constructors' championship for most of this season but has lost out in the development race as its performance has dropped. Haas would be ahead of Renault had Romain Grosjean not been excluded from the Italian Grand Prix for an illegal floor, a matter that arose because Renault protested its rival. Nico Hulkenberg said his Renault team will ...

The French car manufacturer had been a regular contender at the front of the midfield pack during the first half of the season, but has fallen away in recent races as other teams’ developments have pushed them on. But while some of Renault's struggles are down to the car itself, Sainz thinks that not having introduced an engine upgrade in the second half of the year has hurt. Renault ...

The German failed to make it out of an ultra-tight Q1 at Suzuka to take 16th on the grid, matching where he ended up in Spain after he has hampered by a fuel system issue there. But with his performance today not hampered by anything out of the ordinary - although a crash in final practice was not ideal - Hulkenberg thinks that Renault's lack of development progress is now really ... ...

After starting the season as the most consistent fourth-best team on the grid, Renault's points return has slowed down and it has been outscored by Haas and Racing Point Force India across the five races since the summer break.

Ocon is facing a year on the sidelines after a planned switch to Renault fell through at the last minute when the French car manufacturer opted to take Daniel Ricciardo instead.

Abiteboul hit back by saying ... ...

Verstappen said in Russia this week that Red Bull's penalty-inducing switch to a new Spec B is because Renault's Spec C cannot be run at high altitude in Mexico and Brazil. Renault F1 boss Cyril Abiteboul said this change was agreed as part of an engine plan Red Bull requested, and also denied the latest-spec engine would suffer any more than would be normal for those races. "I think that ... ...
