Renault is one of the manufacturers who have been involved in Formula One for several decades. They have existed in the sport – as an engine supplier and constructor – at various stages. Renault sport racing has also been able to enjoy a big amount of success with the likes of Formula 1 Constructors’ Championships on two occasions. There have also been 35 race victories to their credit.
The company made its F1 entry in 1977 when they also featured a turbo engine on the car. This turned out to be a groundbreaking advantage for them, who had been approached by other teams to build engines. This started working out for the team in 1983 when other companies began sourcing Renault F1 engines. Even though there was a lot of success for the team, the French went out of the sport in 1985 as a constructor. Their engine supply also halted in 1986.
The second iteration of Renault F1 came about in 2002 when the team was able to make a triumphant return to the sport. Armed with the expertise of Flavio Briatore, the team was able to pick up two world championship titles – Constructors’ and Drivers’ – by overcoming Ferrari on both occasions.
Those who are interested in betting on this team may get one of the last opportunities for this 2019 campaign. Teams are competing for a place in this penultimate race, Brazilian Grand Prix. It is essential to be aware of the different prices available for this penultimate event.
Many firm favourites are available for the upcoming race in Brazil. Even with the titles wrapped up, there is a great deal of interest, and one can back these F1 Renault drivers at some incredible prices:
Renault F1 team have been unable to get even a podium finish this season. Even though there were some encouraging signs during the Italian Grand Prix when Renault motorsport picked up the 5th-6th finish, these moments have been very few this season. Some options for backing the winning team are the following.
Due to Renault Formula 1’s struggles this season, it is a better idea to back a top-six market than a top-three market. This helps in getting better prices. Some of the best choices are:
It has been a mediocre campaign for Renault sport F1, who are unlikely to match the achievements of the 2018 campaign when the team picked up 122 points at the end of the season. There have been 83 points for the French so far in 2019 with no podium places yet. Even though it was a similar situation in 2018 with podium finishes, there are some excellent places for the team. Even though it was a tough season of transition, the team ended up being more competitive and bringing Ricciardo.
One of the best F1 news Renault had this season was Ricciardo finishing fourth in the Italian Grand Prix at Monza. This was a strong race for them, considering that Nico Hulkenberg finished just behind him in the fifth place. However, there have been too many reliability issues for the French throughout the campaign. There have already been six retirements for the team in 2019. There is a significant danger of being overtaken by Racing Point F1 in the Constructors’ Championship.
Daniel Ricciardo is undoubtedly one of the star Renault F1 drivers in this paddock. He is also immensely talented, and F1 Renault did an outstanding job to prize him away from Red Bull. His debut season at the French organization has been a struggle as he has been able to get only 46 points on the Drivers’ Championship table. So far, he has been unable to get any podiums, but his remarkable progress from 16th place on the grid to a sixth-place finish at the Japanese Grand Prix will not be forgotten. It is remarkably demonstrated in this video.
This has been a remarkable drop for a Renault F1 car driver who has averaged more than 150 points in each of the last three seasons. Ricciardo was able to pick up two victories during the 2018 campaign with Red Bull. In fact, the 30-year-old is heading for his first win this campaign since 2015. He is also heading towards a potential season without any podium finish for the first time since 2013 when he was with Toro Rosso.
Nico Hulkenberg is also in a disappointing position when it comes to the Drivers’ Championship, as he has been able to pick up only 37 points so far. As it stands, the German is going through the most disappointing campaign since he became a regular part of Force India in 2012.
Each Formula One race is not a standalone affair, and one has to consider competition, which extends even to the merchandise section, from other teams. There are teams like Mercedes, Ferrari, and Red Bull that are at the top of the spectrum. However, a decline from McLaren has led to the French emerging as a strong competitor. At the same time, Racing Point has also done well this season with the team just a couple of points behind in the Constructors’ Championship. A lot of work is being done in their headquarters to help overcome the likes of McLaren and Racing Point.
