Goodwood Festival of Speed 2017 – the Formula 1 cars gallery

RENAULT RS01 – While it didn’t score a victory (it mostly racked up a string of retirements), the Renault RS01 is the car that sparked F1’s first turbo era. The French firm spotted the potential of blown engines, sparking an era of hugely powerful F1 cars. The 40th anniversary of Renault’s F1 entry is being celebrated at Goodwood

Some of the finest machines in grand prix racing history have fired up the Goodwood hill this weekend. Here are some of our favourites

 

As ever, this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed features an astonishing array of grand prix machinery, from the sport’s earliest days right through to the ultra-sophisticated modern machine.
The Festival is a great place to experience F1 cars, as well: the public can get a lot closer to the machinery than they’d ever hope to do at a grand prix.
We picked out a small assortment of Formula 1 cars from the event – check them out in the gallery above.
