The result comes after 440 points, seven wins, eight pole positions and seven fastest laps for the duo of Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber so far this year. The crown is also the 11th constructors’ title that Renault has taken in the sport.

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.’
