Renault is back on track with groundbreaking F1s, introducing the V6 Turbocharged engine mid-season on July 16, 1977, at the British Grand Prix in Silverstone.
The beginnings are difficult and the many abandons of the RS01 will earn him the delicious sobriquet of "Yellow Tea Pot" from our best English friends, given his propensity to finish its races in a plume of smoke.
This photo illustrates the arrival of Renault in F1 at the British GP... and its first retirement!
But it was not counting on the talent and dedication of two major players of this period, the engineer Jean Sage and the driver Jean-Pierre Jabouille, who will not only make the car more reliable, but eventually make it win.
Their first victory will be for the famous Grand Prix de France of Dijon-Prenois in 1979.
