Renault F1 Team Targets Aggressive Defense of World Titles in 2006

In front of world-wide media and VIP guests in Monte-Carlo, the world champion Renault F1 Team officially launched its 2006 championship campaign with a clear objective: defending the world championship with an aggressive approach to the 2006 season.

“In terms of performance objectives, there can be only one: to be fighting for the world championship in the final races,” explained Renault F1 Team President Patrick Faure. “We enter the year with an unchanged line-up in our management, our drivers and our technical team. Everybody at Viry and Enstone has been working to prepare a technical package capable of keeping us at the top. Complacency has no place at Renault. We are focused on repeating our successes.”

New Regulations

For 2006, the Renault F1 Team has adapted to significant changes in the technical regulations governing Formula 1. Teams must now run with 2.4L V8 engines (instead of the 3L V10 used in 2005) which have been introduced in order to cap performance, with an initial reduction in power of approximately 20%. These regulations have been framed in order to reduce the potential for development in the medium and long term, thus cutting costs. The change has necessitated the design and development of a brand new engine, the RS26, by the team at Viry-Chatillon. This project has been led since its inception in September 2004 by Leon Taillieu, under the leadership of Engine Technical Director Rob White.

New V8 Engine: Renault RS26

“The RS26 is a brand new engine, which has been designed to exploit the new regulations to the maximum,” explains Rob White. “The regulations now impose many parameters of engine design, such as a minimum weight limit, a fixed architecture and even the centre of gravity. We have taken a pragmatic approach with the aim of producing a winning engine. The dialogue with our colleagues on the chassis team has been open and extensive, to produce the best possible overall package. We have approached the V8 project with relish, and high ambitions.”

Renault R26 Chassis

The package that has been developed around this new V8 powerplant, is the R26 chassis. The work of a team led by Chief Designer Tim Densham, and guided by Chassis Technical Director Bob Bell, the car represents an aggressive evolution of the championship-winning design philosophy from 2005. Although the aerodynamic regulations have remained stable, the team has designed a brand new package to further optimize chassis performance.

Driver Line-up

The race driver line-up for the Renault F1 Team continues unchanged in 2006. The pairing of Fernando Alonso and Giancarlo Fisichella is among the most complete on the grid, and in the coming season, they will be supported by Finn Heikki Kovalainen as test and third driver, after he finished runner-up in the inaugural GP2 series championship in 2005.

World Champion Fernando Alonso will enter the season as the man to beat in Formula 1. After being crowned the sport’s youngest champion in 2005, he will hope to defend his world title with the same blend of aggression and precision that defined his driving last year. Although this will be his final season with the Renault F1 Team, the Spaniard enters the new season fully focused on the challenge ahead.

For team-mate Giancarlo Fisichella, 2006 will be a year of confirmation. After finishing fifth in last year’s world championship, and playing a key role in Renault’s conquest of the constructors’ title, the Italian is aiming to establish himself at the front of the field this year, and to fight for the world title.
