Renault powers 150th win in Indian Grand Prix

As Sebastian Vettel crossed the finish line in India, he made history for Renault – claiming the 150th win for a Renault engine in their Formula 1™ career. As engine makers for some of the best teams in history, Renault has powered nine Drivers’ and ten Constructors’ titles so far.

Altogether, Renault has racked up a total of 150 wins from a little more than 500 Grand Prix starts since 1977 – that’s a win rate of 30%! They’ve achieved wins with every engine type they’ve built for the track, from the V6 to the V10 and back to the current V8.

Webber Chasing Wins As F1 Season Concludes

Australia’s Mark Webber says consistency will be the key to him adding to his Formula One victory tally in the final trio of races this season.

The Red Bull driver won at Monaco and Silverstone earlier this year and told the Australian Grand Prix’s ‘Keeping Track’ podcast, in an exclusive interview, that he has some clear goals for the remainder of the season. This is in spite of the fact that the world championship is shaping up as a straight fight between Webber’s teammate Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso.
