Today the Renault Sport engine is still highly advanced, with a 1.6-litre turbocharged V6 featuring a pair of powerful energy recuperation systems that feed twin electric motors... The aim is to deliver the same power as the 2013 V8 engine delivered using a V6 turbo and twin electric motors (which also uses 40 percent less fuel).
As a racing fan and a Le Mans nut I read the tweet that announced Allan McNish's retirement with disbelief and then denial. The avalanche of messages that followed made it clear that the three-time Le Mans winner was indeed quitting while at the top of the sport, just 45 days after clinching the 2013 World Endurance Championship title in Shanghai... I was stunned.
