About Renault RS01

  • Year Launched: 1977

Derided by the competition and dubbed "The Yellow Teapot", the Renault RS01 was the first turbo car in Formula 1 history. Initially it wasn't very reliable or competitive, but that soon changed when Jean-Pierre Jabouille won Renault's first race at the 1979 French Grand Prix. By 1983, turbos were the standard F1 engine.
