Nico Hülkenberg has driven for the Renault Sport Formula One Team since the start of 2017. The German driver had 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.

Daniel Ricciardo joins Renault F1 Team this year with a successful Formula 1 career to date, which includes no less than seven wins, 29 podiums and three pole positions. His journey to Formula 1 included four years of racing under Renault power across the junior categories in the Formula Renault 2.0 Championship, World Series by Renault and Formula Renault 3.5, before making the step up to Formula 1 midway through the 2011 championship.
