Formula One racing engine. A technician performing final assembly checks on a Renault Sport RS4 engine for a Formula One racing car. The engine is a V10, with ten combustion cylinders arranged in two banks forming a 'V' shape when viewed from the end. The engine has a capacity of 3.5 litres and is 'normally aspirated' (has no turbocharger). To further boost performance, the engine uses a specially-developed petrol and an advanced comupter engine management system. The RS4 engine was supplied to the Williams team which dominated the Formula One World Championships in 1992. Photographed at Viry-Chatillon, France.
