2016 Renault Sport F1 Car Photos Released
Renault Sport debuted its distinctive yellow-gold and black colours 2016 Renault Sport F1 car in an event hosted in Docklands, Melbourne, in a highly unique way. The R.S.16 was first seen by the guests as it literally surfed the waves at Boat Harbour Park beach just outside Sydney!
The new 2016 Renault car will be driven by Jolyon Palmer and Kevin Magnussen.
This is actually the second time you’ve seen a car released from Renault Sport. As we stated with the first release it was likely nothing but a promotional release.
This RS 16 is the official livery of their 2016 F1 racing campaign.
Renault Sport Formula One Team drivers Kevin Magnussen and Jolyon Palmer plus Australian pro surfer Ellie-Jean Coffey undertook the shoot on Monday before the Australian Grand Prix.
The car – a showcar for those concerned about whether it will dry out in time for Sunday’s race – was fixed to the 7.5m long board using bespoke harnesses. It was then towed out into the Pacific Ocean where it was unleashed to catch its first-ever waves.
