Renault is a team that has been involved on-and-off in Formula 1 throughout the entire history of the Sport. Renault has mainly been used as an engine supplier to several teams over the years including Benetton and Williams who both tasted Championship success during the nineties. Renault became a constructor in 2001 when it took over the Benetton racing team and they re-named it Renault F1 in 2002.

Fernando Alonso became a World Champion with Renault in 2005 and repeated his success a year later as Renault went head-to-head with the perhaps bigger teams in Ferrari and McLaren. These victories highlighted the progress that had been made by the Renault team in a relatively short period of team.
