|3 April: Bahrain Grand Prix - Race Report - Renault F1|
Fernando wins his second consecutive race, while Giancarlo retired early with an engine failure.
Fernando Alonso dominated this afternoon’s Bahraini Grand Prix at the Sakhir circuit. At the wheel of his R25, the Spaniard scored the Mild Seven Renault F1 Team’s third victory of the season, and the third of his career, two weeks after winning in Malaysia. It was also an historic moment in Renault’s sporting history: this success marked the hundredth win for a Renault engine in Formula 1, the twentieth for a Renault chassis, and this win is the first time in history that a Renault chassis has won three consecutive races.

Briatore, Managing Director
Pat Symonds, Executive Director of
Engineering “To see a driver control a race like Fernando did this afternoon is an impressive sight. His performance is even more
remarkable when you consider he did not even use all the revs available on the engine in the opening laps. He seemed capable of
increasing his pace when necessary, without putting undue stress on the car.
