1985 Renault RE60 Warwick

The Renault RE60 was a Formula One car designed by Bernard Dudot and Jean-Claude Migeot based on previous year RE50 model. The car was a little bit more compact, but overweight comparing to its predecessor. Despite Dudot improved EF4 engine to 760 hp, and  new modification RE60B powered by new EF15 developing 810 hp appeared mid-season, Renault was much less competitive than Renault-powered Lotus. Patrick Tambay scored the last two podium finishes for the team in Portugal and San Marino Grands Prix. Derek Warwick driving the second team’s entry was fifth in Monaco and Germany. The 1985 season proved to be the last for the factory Renault team until Renault purchased and renamed the Benetton team at the end of 2001.
