Our F1 programme forms the core of Renault Sport Racing, our new entity encompassing all our motorsport activities, from Formula E to Formula Renault 2.0 and including customer racing programmes.
Nico Hülkenberg joins Renault Sport Formula One Team with an impressive racing career ahead of his eye-opening Formula 1 debut in 2010, with championship titles secured in Formula BMW, A1GP and the GP2 Series. Nico also achieved a pole position in his rookie F1 season and won at Le Mans on his debut, with Porsche in 2015.
Jolyon Palmer comes into 2017 after a successful rookie year in Formula 1 where he showed strong performance over the course of the season to be retained with the squad. A strong work ethic allied to a robust approach to his racing means Jolyon certainly should be one to watch as he harnesses the extra performance of the R.S.17.
Our 2017 challenger will use the R.S.17 chassis developed and produced at the Renault Sport Formula One base in Enstone, UK.
