Renault Sport launched their new F1 car today at a press event in London, which was also broadcasted live on YouTube.

The RS17, which will be driven by Jolyon Palmer and Nico Hülkenberg, as well as test driver Sergey Sirotkin, is the third car to be revealed ahead of the 2017 season.

It was revealed under flashing spotlights, which followed a gripping video countdown on the starting of the engine before the start of a race.

Sponsorships were also announced at the event, including a partnership between the Renault Sport team and Microsoft.

The launch of the RS17 follows the launches of the Sauber C36 earlier this week, and the Williams FW40 which was revealed in a company tweet last Friday.

Car launches from the rest of the field of teams are scheduled for this week ahead of pre-season testing in Barcelona.

Force India, Mercedes, Ferrari, McLaren, Toro Rosso, Red Bull Racing, and Haas F1 Team are next on the list of cars to be launched.
