40-Years of Renault in Formula 1 in Photos

Post by jakebarrell on Wed Sep 13, 2017 8:28 am

From their first appearance on July 16, 1977, 40 years ago at the British Grand Prix, Renault has journeyed a long way through in the pinnacle of motorsport. From their early days of turbo lag ridden machines to their mammoth first victory that came just two years later on the same day that became part of Formula 1 history for its FANTASTIC DUEL BETWEEN RENÉ ARNOUX AND GILLES VILLENEUVE. Renault’s four-decade journey through Formula 1 has been an eventful one where the manufacturer has been involved as both a successful fully-fledged racing team and also as a highly successful, and celebrated engine supplier. Here’s a look at Renault’s 40-years in Formula 1 in photos.

1977. Renault debuts with Jean-Pierre Jabouille debuting at the 1977 British Grand Prix onboard the Renault RS01.

1978. The first time Renault scored point in Formula One at the United States Grand Prix with Jabouille finishing fourth on his 36th birthday.

1979. Two years in and Renault scores its first victory from the hands of Jean­-Pierre Jabouille at the 1979 French Grand Prix, alongside a spectacular battle between teammate René ARNOUX and Gilles Villeneuve for second place.

1980. Renault was now becoming a force to reckon with, 3-years since their stepping in F1. With wins at Brazil, South Africa and Austria, the team secured a respectable fourth in the Constructors’ standing.

1981. Enter Alain Prost. Prost secured three victories with the RE20B that season.
