The Red Bull Racing and Renault Sport Racing partnership competed in its final race today, marking the end of one of the most fruitful Formula 1 chassis-engine collaborations of all-time. Together, the duo has secured 59 wins, 60 poles, 60 fastest laps and 4,277.5 points, making Red Bull Racing the sixth most successful manufacturer in F1 history despite contesting just 14 seasons to date.

The partnership began in 2007 and took little time to garner success. Following its first win in the Chinese Grand Prix 2009, a first world title came in 2010. In 2013, Red Bull-Renault then became the first constructor-engine partnership in over 20 years to score four consecutive World Championship titles, a run of success achieved only once in the history of the sport (McLaren-Honda from 1988 – 1991). Sebastian Vettel likewise became a quadruple World Champion behind the wheel of successive Red Bull-Renault cars, scoring 38 wins in total, including a remarkable nine wins in a row in 2013.

Cyril Abiteboul, managing director of Renault Sport Racing, commented, "In Red Bull we found a partner who would challenge for more of everything. In return we explored the limits of engine technology and introduced some of the most avant-garde innovations seen in F1 engines, including great improvements in exhaust blowing, fuel economy and combustion efficiency. We also found a partner whose competitive spirit equaled our own. Together we achieved outstanding results and in time our record will be recognised on its own merits. We wish Red Bull all the best for its next step and look forward to continuing our rivalry on track in the coming seasons."
