A new race driver & a new partnership. Christmas is not around yet but Renault fans can enjoy the two big news Renault Sport Racing is giving them as gifts.
The R.S. 2027 Vision concept car unveiled on 19 April at the Shanghai Motor Show illustrates the Renault take on the shape of Formula 1 ten years hence, in 2027. To a great extent, this vision builds on the three main foundations of Renault innovation today: the electric vehicle, the connected vehicle and the autonomous vehicle. Key technologies in these three areas are, or will shortly be, available on Renault production vehicles.
So tyres – they’re essentially just a bunch of lookalike, big circular chunks of black rubber, aren’t they? Not in Formula 1, where drivers have access to a full colour-coded range – and where making the correct choice is absolutely crucial.
A week after tackling the Texas grasslands, the Renault Sport Formula 1 Team is kicking up another gear as it readies itself to take on the Mexican Grand Prix – a race whose altitude is as high as its searing top speed!
While behind-the-scenes, preparations for 2017 are already in full flow (as evidenced by the recent announcement that Germany’s Nico Hülkenberg has been recruited for next season), there is still plenty of mileage left in 2016.
Formula 1’s whirlwind tour continues! Just one week after the Malaysian Grand Prix, where Jolyon Palmer picked up his first championship point, Renault Sport Formula One Team has moved on to Japan for one of the most eagerly-awaited races of the season.

Buoyed by Kevin Magnussen’s points finish on the streets of Singapore last time out, Renault Sport Formula One Team is ready to embark upon the second leg of Formula 1’s Asian odyssey in Malaysia this weekend (September 30-October 2).

After the flag came down at Spa-Francorchamps, Renault Sport Formula 1 Team’s staff put their emotional Belgian GP behind them to focus on the ensuing trip south to Italy.
After the mandatory three-week summer break, all the members of the Renault Sport Formula One Team are now back in the starting blocks and ready to return to the track for the Belgian Grand Prix. Not only that, but there is even more anticipation than usual ahead of the forthcoming weekend, since the celebrated Spa-Francorchamps circuit – host of the 13th round of the 2016 Formula 1 World Championship campaign – is one of the most spectacular and popular of the season.
