IT WAS ALL YELLOW: RENAULT SPORT AND BELL & ROSS
With an involvement in Formula One – as both constructor and engine supplier – spanning 30 years and including 650 Grand Prix, 170 victories and 12 titles, the launch of a new Renault F1 car was always going to cause a buzz louder than a village of active beehives. It, therefore, came as little surprise when the great and good from the world of motorsport packed into Pimlico’s Lindley Hall for the launch of the R.S. 17 in February this year. To great fanfare, Renault Sport Formula One Team leaders, sponsors and drivers Nico Hulkenberg and Jolyon Palmer plus development driver Sergey Sirotkin were joined by F1 legend and long-term Renault supporter Alain Prost to unveil the 2017 car.
