Valtteri Bottas
Following a successful karting career, Valtteri Bottas chose Formula Renault to make his single-seater debut. Fast from the word go, Valtteri quickly found his way to the podium before doing the Formula Renault Eurocup - Formula Renault North European Cup double against Daniel Ricciardo and Antonio Felix da Costa in 2008. Four years later, he made his Grand Prix debut with Williams-Renault. The Finn was runner-up in the 2019 Formula 1 World Championship and has seven GP victories to his credit.

Patrick Tambay
Like many French drivers in the 1970s, Patrick Tambay won a talent-spotting operation that allowed him to race in Formula Renault. While he lost to René Arnoux by virtue of race wins in the 1973 Formula Renault European Challenge, the Frenchman continued to make progress and even represented Renault in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1976 and 1977. That same year, he made his Formula 1 debut and went on to score two wins and finish fourth in the standings in 1983.
