When Renault, createur d'automobile, first entered F1 the one part of the car that stood out was the engine; Renault pioneered Turbo engines in F1. In 2002 the engine is special again, with a V angle of about 110 - 120 agrees it is over 20 degrees wider than the competitor's engines. A wider V angle results in a lower centre of gravity from which should improve handling by quite a bit. The wide-angle engine was introduced in the 2001 season in the Benetton and a season of development should have solved the teething problem the team was suffering from. The first Grand Prix of the season started promising with Jarno Trulli driving in second place after he crashed out.
