The Alliance’s contribution to sustainable development is also being displayed at various exhibitions and conferences.

The race itself was a great success for Renault, as Sébastien Buemi finished first and Nicolas Prost claimed fourth place ! The season resumes in February of next year in the streets of Buenos Aires…
