Renault returned to F1 as a team after an absence of over 15 years. When Renault, first entered F1 the one part of the car that stood out was the engine; Renault pioneered turbo engines in F1. In 2002 the engine is special again, with a V angle of about 110 - 120 agrees it is over 20 degrees wider than the competitor's engines. A wider V angle results in a lower centre of gravity from which should improve handling by quite a bit. The wide-angle engine was introduced in the 2001 season in the Benetton Formula and a season of development should have solved the teething problem the team was suffering from.
The team finished fourth in the constructors championship with 23 points.
