Among the oldest teams on the grid, Renault first entered an F1 race way back in 1977. It was the British Grand Prix, held at Silverstone which is nearly four decades back that first launched the team.

Today, that team is all set to unfurl the exciting partnership of Australian Daniel Ricciardo and German Nico Hulkenberg on the grid starting 2019.

But having said that, are these luminaries who are all set to go all guns blazing in their pursuit for glory this season the only enterprising faces associated with the famous Formula 1 team?

What about the young drivers coming through the ranks at Renault?

If you are a Formula 1 fan and someone who loves to stay updated on the developments surrounding younger drivers who are expected to be on the grid one day given their sheer talent and promise, then you may have heard of Maximilian Fewtrell.

Have you?

Well, turns out, the 19-year-old Briton, who happens to be the 2016 British F4 champion and someone who finished sixth in the Formula Renault Eurocup (1st Rookie) could well be on the grid sometime in the future, should things turn out well for the teenager.

And that's not all.

Maximilian's 2018 form guide reveals some emphatic performances for Art Grand Prix, managed by Nicholas Todt and Sauber's Frederic Vasseur, for FIA Formula 3 Championship, wherein he bagged 6 wins and as many pole positions, 5 fastest laps and, above all, 11 podiums.


Rated highly but for his obvious consistency and recent form, Maximilian, who goes by the name of Max already- does that ring a bell- could well be on the driver's seat (no pun intended) at Renault, where the future stands.

But that said, the smiling bloke shared candidly that he is not allowing himself to be distracted.

While this would obviously be a big step in the right direction for the youngster, it's this very possibility, one that rests in the realm of the future that, according to Max himself is keeping him 'motivated'.

There's anyways huge buzz surrounding Renault's 2021 plans, a prospect that may hold a big bright step for younger drivers such as Maximilian Fewtrell.

And with Nico Hulkenberg's term running to the end of 2019, with the French manufacturer keen to push up the younger talents, who knows? Maximilian's time may just come early!
