we are the champions
2006: Renault and Fernando Alonso won the constructor and driver Formula 1 World Championship titles, repeating their 2005 exploit. The Renault R26-03 was then at the pinnacle of its Formula 1 career.
With a V8 engine delivering 800 hp, the Renault R26-03 reached speeds over 300 kph, powering the Renault team to the constructors’ title in the 2006 world championship. Reigning world champion Fernando Alonso took the driver's title for the second year running, even with Michael Schumacher on the grid that year. Proof of the quality of Renault R26-03: the second Renault driver Giancarlo Fisichella finished fourth in the driver championship.
