After scoring its first points in Russia two weeks ago, Renault Sport Formula One Team now heads back to Europe for the Spanish Grand Prix this Sunday, May 15.
Renault introduces its innovative new power unit, Energy F1-2014, at the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget. This new generation power unit will make its debut in the FIA Formula One world Championship from 2014. The race-intent power unit revealed for the first time demonstrates a radical leap in Formula One powertrain technology. This new generation of Power Units will combine a 1.6 litre V6 turbocharged engine with energy recovery systems that will dramatically increase efficiency by harvesting energy dissipated as heat in the exhaust or brakes.
Renault Sport F1 is tasked with designing and building optimised engines that can be fully integrated into a chassis package created by RSF1’s carefully selected partner teams. This season, our 4 partner teams, Infiniti Red Bull Racing, Lotus F1 Team, Caterham F1 Team and Williams F1 Team, will be equipped with the RS27-2013 power unit, a 750bhp V8 engine.
