The RS10 was designed and developed by François Castaing, Michel Tétu and Marcel Hubert and was developed from the much-maligned RS01. The RS01 was conceived alongside Renault’s effort to build a turbocharged Le Mans winning car.
The RS01 was no more than a development mule for the 1.5-litre turbocharged engine. Jean-Pierre Jabouille with his engineering degree, mechanical aptitude and driving skill was hired to run Renault’s F1 program in 1977.
