Renault Sport F1 Team (REN-oh) is a Formula One constructor that previously raced in two periods in the sport, from 1977 to 1985, and from 2002 to 2011 before purchasing the Lotus F1 Team in 2016. The team has competed in 304 races, winning 35, and winning two Constructors' titles, taking the title in 2005 and 2006, with driver Fernando Alonso winning the Drivers' title in both seasons.

After the 1985 season, they continued as an engine supplier. They stopped after 1986, but returned again in 1989. They left Formula One again at the end of 1997 and returned again in 2001. From 2007 to 2015, they supplied engines to various teams. Although they supplied engines to Red Bull in 2016, they show the TAG Heuer brand,[1] and despite supplying engines to Toro Rosso in 2017,[2][3] the constructor was not labeled with Renault's name.[4]

They competed as Lotus from 2012 to 2015. Before then, the Caterham team ran under the Lotus name.

HistoryEdit

1977-1985: The beginnings of RenaultEdit

Renault's first Formula One season began in 1977, entering in the last five races of the season with Jean-Pierre Jabouille being the sole driver. The Renault RS01 failed to finish all of the races and even failed to qualify for the Canadian Grand Prix.

The team earned their first points at the 1978 United States Grand Prix, with Jabouille finishing fourth after starting 9th on the grid.

For the 1979 season, Renault signed René Arnoux to partner with Jabouille. The season was notable for a battle between Arnoux and Gilles Villeneuve at the French Grand Prix, which the team eventually won the race, with Jabouille first and Arnoux in third.

They confirmed Kevin Magnussen and Jolyon Palmer as their race drivers, with Esteban Ocon as their reserve driver.
