Formula Renault 3.5

An integral part of the World Series by Renault since its creation, Formula One demonstration drives will once again be on the schedule throughout 2013. Entertaining the fans at this season’s WSR meetings will be Infiniti Red Bull Racing’s team of drivers, who will be touring the tracks in the world championship-winning RB8.

Since the inception of the World Series by Renault in 2005 nearly five million fans have thrilled to the sound of the Renault Sport Formula One V8-powered cars. And just as they did last year, the Infiniti Red Bull Racing team will be sending out one of their cars at each meeting on the WSR calendar.

This year’s demo drives mark the return of some former pupils of the Renault Sport driver development programme. Respective Formula Renault 3.5 Series runners-up in 2010 and 2011 and now team-mates at Scuderia Toro Rosso, Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne are just two of the Formula One drivers who will be back in the WSR paddock. Also joining in the fun will be Infiniti Red Bull Racing test and reserve driver Sebastien Buemi, a former competitor in Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0.

Last but certainly not least, Formula One legend David Coulthard will also be showing off his skills in the WSR arena. A winner of 13 Grand Prix in all and the 2001 Formula One world championship runner-up, the Scotsman is excited at the prospect of taking part in the demo drives for the first time. During his stints with Williams and Red Bull, David Coulthard flew the Renault flag high, driving cars powered by the French manufacturer’s engines with typical élan.

As was the case last season, when Romain Grosjean and Alain Prost gave the fans at the Circuit Paul Ricard plenty to shout about, the World Series by Renault will also have a number of surprise appearances up its sleeve as the season unfolds.

The action starts at the opening WSR meeting of the year, to be held at Motorland Aragon on 27-28 April, when Daniel Ricciardo will have the honour of performing this season’s first demo drive.
