Mark Webber, Infiniti Red Bull Racing F1 driver, pays Renault Lardy technical center a visit

F1 driver, Mark Webber, of Infiniti Red Bull Racing, came to Lardy to meet and greet Renault employees of this Paris area technical center (where all Renault cars are crash-tested). The perfect opportunity for him to test drive newly revealed Twin'Run concept car, the hot hatch that made its debut at Monaco GP, as well as Twizy RSF1 (fitted with KERS), and spanking new Mégane R.S. Red Bull Racing RB8.

Renault employees had the chance to ask the Australian driver and his power-unit engineer their questions.

What does Webber think of the coming power-unit for 2014? "Renault always does really well when regulations change, so I'm not worried".

Or whether or not he'd be driving a Renault-powered Formula One next year. "I'd like to, it's all very clear in my head right now. Whatever happens, Renault has always played a great role in my career".


 The "happy few", who got the chance to drive with the pilot.


 Mégane R.S. Red Bull Racing RB8, turned real toy between the hands of Mark Webber, who even burned its tyres!


 Hot hatch Twin'Run concept car also a victim of Mark Webber's driving skills (video coming soon !)


Last but not least,  the Red Bull got a taste of electric driving behind the wheel of Twizy RSF1, fitted with KERS.
