Renault icons take to the track in Monaco

Renault is proud to start the 40th #anniversary celebrations of its Formula 1 debut over the course of this weekend’s Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco.

Renault’s Formula 1 debut came at the 1977 British Grand Prix where JeanPierre Jabouille unleashed the firstever turbocharged Formula 1 car, the RS01. Jabouille will be reunited with the RS01 to drive laps of the Monaco track on Friday 26 May.

Joining Jabouille, Fourtime Formula 1 champion, Renault Ambassador and #renaultsport #racing Special Advisor Alain Prost will be reunited with his RE 40, Renault’s first carbon fibre chassis, in which he won four races (Paul Ricard, Spa, Silverstone, Österreichring), en route to narrowly missing out on winning the 1983 Drivers’ Championship by two points.

Highlighting the unique expertise Renault has gained in the course of the 40 years since its Formula 1 debut, #renaultsport Formula One Team driver Nico Hülkenberg will drive the eagerly anticipated New Mégane R.S in its first official public appearance. Due to be released at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, the New Mégane R.S. will be presented in a special yellow and black livery.

Renault Sport Formula One Team plans a number of events to highlight Renault’s fortyyear Formula 1 provenance, with fortyyear celebration partner initiatives and the presence of guests who have played an active role in Renault’s Formula 1 success.
