Sebastian Vettel
Right from his Formula Renault 3.5 Series debut during the 2006 season, Sebastian Vettel caused a sensation by finishing second in his first race and then winning the following day. Injured at the following round at Spa, he returned in 2007. He dominated the general classification, but the world of Formula 1 already beckoned. His debut with BMW convinced Toro Rosso to sign him up. A year later, the German won his first Grand Prix at Monza before winning four straight world titles between 2010 and 2013, each time with a Renault V8!

Heikki Kovalainen
Impressive in karting, Heikki Kovalainen quickly adapted to single-seaters and Formula Renault. He finished fourth with two wins and top rookie honours in the 2001 Formula Renault UK Championship. His performance led him to a place in the Renault Driver Development programme, that accompanied him to his campaigns in the World Series by Nissan and the GP2 Series. In 2007, he made his debut in F1 with Renault F1 Team before going on to win his only Grand Prix in Hungary a year later.
