Renault: 43 Years in Formula 1

On July 16, 1977, Renault entered its very first Formula 1 Grand Prix to embark upon a new chapter in its long and illustrous history - one that dates back to the very infancy of motorsport.


Over the ensuing decades, Renault competed successfully in all forms of the sport, from circuit racing, to conventional and cross-country rallying, record-braking attempts and endurance racing. It was therefore perhaps inevitable that its various motor racing exploits would ultimately lead Renault to F1, the absolute pinnacle of the sport.

In the four decades that have elapsed since 1977, Renault's ambitious and enduring commitment to the sport has been characterised by an intelligent, pioneering approach and technological prowess. Not only has the manufacturer notched up a long list of victories, but its enviable record has been achieved by dint of ongoing innovaton in the areas of aerodynamics, chassis and engines. Renault is today a key playes in the fast-paced world of grand prix racing, widely respected by all its rivals up and down the pit-lane.
