Co-engineering The Future of Mobility: DuPont and Renault DP World F1® Team

The future of mobility beings now with DuPont and Renault DP World F1 team entering a new era of collaboration through their multiyear technical partnership

As the automotive industry continues to evolve, grow and transform, both of our organizations will continue to lead the way in developing technologies that are key to success not only on the track, but for manufacturers of the vehicles we see on our roads - The future of mobility begins now.

In Formula 1, the difference between glory and defeat comes down to the smallest of margins – thousandths of a second, a millimeter or a gram. The competition between teams is one of the fiercest in the world, each working relentlessly for their car to be the fastest, lightest and most reliable.

To many ‘gearheads’ F1 cars are also seen as the fastest laboratory on wheels. The absolute pinnacle of engineering and materials science, put to the test to achieve incremental gains that can have a substantial impact on a corner, a race or an overall drivers’ championship. This innovation doesn’t just stop at the track.  Formula 1 has been at forefront of new technologies throughout history with many developments directly benefiting the cars we drive on the road today.

Inspired by a relentless commitment to cutting-edge engineering.

This relentless commitment to cutting-edge engineering is why we are so excited to be official technical partners of Renault DP World F1 Team. Our multi-year partnership brings together the people, the passion, and a rich collective heritage in engineering and materials science that will help unlock technological developments to define the future of motor racing, and the automotive industry more broadly.

Working together, we are developing and delivering disruptive solutions to drive progress in new technologies in electrification, connectivity and safety, all while helping to enhance the performance of the teams’ cars under the speed, forces and heat that they encounter on the track.

Ready to co-engineer and solve to solve the most complex problems

Since 1898, Renault has pushed the boundaries of mobility, creating futuristic concept cars and achieving era defining F1 victories. At DuPont, we’re no stranger to the automotive industry either – having worked tirelessly in the sector for over 100 years partnering with automotive manufacturers the world over to develop the materials and technologies that help to solve their most complex problems.

We’ve developed revolutionary ways of reducing weight, improving heat and thermal management, boosting connectivity and making cars safer for drivers. In fact, our solutions lie at the heart of some of the most important automotive engineering developments of recent years.

Through our partnership with Renault DP World F1 Team we will be working side-by-side to help anticipate and solve the challenges the industry and team face to produce safer, more sustainable, better performing cars.

As the automotive industry continues to evolve, grow and transform, so will we

Whether its underpinning the fuel cell, strengthening the monocoque with Kevlar® fibers, or increasing the safe operating temperatures of advanced electrical and hybrid drivetrains, to ensuring drivers and pit lane workers are provided with the most advanced Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) to ensure trusted protection from heat and flame with Nomex®.

As the automotive industry continues to evolve, grow and transform, both of our organizations will continue to lead the way in developing technologies that are key to success not only on the track, but for manufacturers of the vehicles we see on our roads.
