|Renault's Constructors' Titles|
| The 2012 title is the 11th constructors' championship that Renault has taken in the sport. After joining forces with Williams at the end of the 80s, the first constructors' championship came in 1992.
It was then followed by successive titles in 1993 and 1994. Renault teamed up with Benetton in 1995 and immediately took another crown, before Williams again took the title in 1996 and 1997; the sixth consecutive title to be powered by Renault. After a brief hiatus from the sport Renault returned with the Renault F1 Team and won another two titles in 2005 and 2006. The latest period of success with Red Bull Racing has yielded three constructors' titles to date.
Briton Nigel Mansell gave Renault its first-ever world championship success, and he did so in dominant fashion. Behind the wheel of a Williams equipped with the RS4 Renault engine, Mansell opened the season with five consecutive victories. His dominance continued throughout the year and he was crowned drivers' champion at the Hungarian Grand Prix – only the 11th race of the year! The constructors' title was also secured at the next race, the Belgian Grand Prix. At the close of a classic season, Williams-Renault had raced to 10 victories, 15 pole positions, 11 fastest laps and six one-two finishes.
