Sebastian Vettel’s second place at the United States Grand Prix sealed the third consecutive constructors’ championship for Red Bull Racing and Renault.
The Red Bull Racing-Renault partnership started in 2007 when the RS27, Renault’s 2.4 litre V8 developed in Viry-Châtillon, was integrated into the Red Bull Racing team chassis.
The first podium came in the inaugural season, with the first-ever Red Bull Racing-Renault win arriving in China 2009. The RS27 has since powered Red Bull to a total of 34 wins, three constructors’ championships and 1794.5 points in just over five years.
Carlos Ghosn, President of Renault, commented, ‘On behalf of Renault and all our employees I would like to congratulate Renault Sport F1 and Red Bull Racing for this latest success.
Eleven world constructors’ titles for Renault in a little over 35 years in the sport is a considerable achievement.
This result fully justifies Renault’s decision to return to F1 engine supply and will provide additional motivation as we move forward to our next challenges : continued success in F1 and preparing for the introduction of the new engine regulations in 2014.’
