Renault’s exciting new Formula 1 car will race in the traditional yellow-gold and black colour scheme when the company makes its return to the Grand Prix grid in 2016. 

Great Britain's Jolyon Palmer and Denmark's Kevin Magnussen are the team’s two permanent drivers. Palmer romped to victory in 2014’s GP2 title and is the son of ex-F1 racing driver Jonathan Palmer, who owns the MSV group of circuits in the UK - including Brands Hatch.

Renault has been involved in F1 for approaching 40 years and the decision to return to Formula 1 this year is confirmation that Renault sees motorsport as an essential part of its vision for the brand.

"The black and Liquid Yellow colours themselves are naturally the corporate colours of Renault Sport, but also share the heritage of Renault Sport on track. The first-ever Renault F1 car, the RS01, hit the track in yellow and black in 1977 and this latest livery is a nod to this formidable car. To create much more tangible links between Renault Sport Cars and Renault Sport Racing, we have also used colours to showcase the matt white colour available on the Renault Clio Renault Sport 220 Trophy."
Cyril Abiteboul, Managing Director of Renault Sport Racing
