Renault F1 Sport scoop prestigious award

Jan.26 (Press Release) Renault Sport F1 took the jury’s ‘Special Prix’ prize (Prix Spécial du jury) at the 27th Festival Automobile International ceremony in Paris, France, on Wednesday, January 25.

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.
