The Renault R26 is an impressive piece of machinery, to say the least. Piloted by Fernando Alonso and Giancarlo Fisichella, the French team's 2006 Formula One race car managed to secure both the titles: the drivers' championship and the constructors'. And it did so under a great deal of stress as Ferrari put up a good fight for both titles, and hardly broke down the entire season.

This video from Renault gives you a look at the car and its engine, all developed and produced in-house, in all their championship-winning splendor.

      Only the engine development is made in France.

      Renault a juste gagné 2 fois de suite le championat du monde de formule 1 2005 et 2006(contre ferrari les 2 fois...an italian team!!!) avec deux groupes de travail en france: viry chatillon (moteur-engine)-guyancourt/technocentre(direction générale et sportive-headquarter)
      et un en angleterre: enston (chassis).
      Pour mémoire, qui a inventé le "fair play"?

      Rad. I like the Bridgestone-shredding front wing the best. :)

      Where did they say that Renault F1 was in France? Like many of the F1 teams, they're based in the UK. So if they made all their own stuff at their home in the UK, it's all made 'in-house'.

      modern aerodynamics are insane. just goes to show that you cant eyeball aerodynamics, its gotta be done on a computer. it makes me wonder what f1 cars will look like 10 years from now.
