The program selects one candidate from each of the participating regions, which include the U.S., Asia and Oceania, Canada, China, Europe, Mexico, and the Middle East, and places them with the Renault Sport Formula One Team for 12 months. The program has produced a number of successful engineers that are currently working in F1 or one of its open-wheel feeder series.
