F1 drivers test the new N5 platform

Updated: Apr 30, 2019

Now for something a bit special... Recently four of the biggest names in Motorsport visited our friends, RMC, in Spain. Ex-Formula One drivers David Coulthard and Mark Webber joined Carlos Sainz Sr., and his son, current F1 driver, Carlos Sainz Jr. in the new Renault Clio N5 rally car.

Both Coulthard and Webber, now presenters for the Formula One coverage on Channel 4 (in the UK), received training from Sainz Sr. and Jr. in the gravel-spec car for a feature in the pre-show coverage of the Monaco Grand Prix this weekend.

The Renault Clio N5 is built by RMC to compete in the national championships, both in Spain, and around the world. All of their cars, both on gravel and tarmac, feature 4-way adjustable EXE-TC suspension. Find out more about our products here >>

Carlos Sainz Sr. has already had experience with our suspension - When in the WRC driving for Citroen Sport, from 2003-2005, Sainz took the Citroen Xsara WRC, equipped with EXE-TC roller-bearing suspension to two victories - Turkey in 2003, and Argentina in 2004.
