Renault F1 Team 2006 World Champion
A very strong start to the season for the Renault F1 Team. Fernando Alonso started where he ended the 2005 season and showed the pace of the R26 by taking the victory from start position 4.
Alonso win at Bahrain.
In this race the Renault F1 Team kept up the pace and this time it was Giancarlo Fisichella who took the victory from pole position and Fernando Alonso following him at second place starting from 7 position. This was the first one-two win for Renault in this season.
Fisichella win at Sepang. Fisico, Briatore and Alonso.
Alonso took the third win for Renault in this third Grand Prix of the 2006 season. Alonso started from 3 position. Fisichella had a starting position of 2 but had a problem at the grid resulting in a start from the pit. But even with that he secured a 5 place and thereby securing vital points to the constructors title.
Alonso in Australia.

Alonso took the sixth win for Renault as he started from pole position with Fisichella starting from fifth position. Fisichella ended at fourth position.
Alonso took the seventh win for Renault as he started from pole position with Fisichella starting from second position. Fisichella finished fourth. This was the fourth win in a row for Alonso this season.
Alonso took the eigth win for Renault as he started from position 5 with Fisichella starting from position 6. Fisichella finished in third place. This was the fourth win in a row for Alonso this season.
This was a very important win for Renault as it has lost quite some speed after the FIA first said (to the race in Germany) that mass-dampers probably was illegal and then later on banned the mass-dampers, that has been used since late 2005 (Very very strange decision). This was a major setback for Renault and a again FIA handed over a great advantage to Ferrari.
A great win for the whole team.
