Of course it was a figure of speech when I said Renault invented EVERY innovation in F1 engine technology that we see in todays cars. But its not far from the truth! Turbocharging was intoduced by Renault. Turbos later DOMINATED the sport. Renault introduced hydraulic valves to the sport. And more importantly Renault invented the pneumatic vale return. Pneumatic valves are the primary reason we saw engines eclipsing 20,000 RPM a few years ago before a rev limit was imposed. Those crazy RPM are what enabled the nearly 1000 hp 3-Liter V10's. Imagine what is possible today without the limitations imposed. Renault introduced a vastly disproportionate amount of new engine technology in the last 35 years!
