The award was made in recognition of Renault’s involvement in Formula 1 since 1977, during which time it has claimed nine Drivers’ world crowns and ten Constructors’ titles.
Said Renault Sport F1’s Managing Director Jean-François Caubet: “The success Renault has achieved in F1 is based on technical innovation and performance, a high level of quality and service but also on the strong, competitive relationships we have developed with our teams, drivers and partners. The 2011 results – two championships, 12 wins and 18 pole positions – have demonstrated we have achieved great results. It is however a real honour for Renault Sport F1 to have these achievements recognised by the wider motoring community. “
The Festival (January 26-29), which takes place at the Hôtel National des Invalides in the heart of Paris, also features a display of concept cars which is open to the public. The exhibition includes two Renault vehicles: Zoe Preview and R-Space.
