Renault F1 pays tribute to Dino Toso

It is with great sadness that the ING Renault F1 Team confirms that former Director of Aerodynamics, Dino Toso, lost his battle with illness this morning and passed away peacefully at his home.

Dino was instrumental in building one of the sport's most successful aerodynamics departments, which helped the Renault F1 team win double drivers' and constructors' titles in 2005 and 2006.

His contribution to the team, both through his results and his courage in the face of illness, are an inspiration. He will be missed enormously and the immediate thoughts of the whole team are with his family.
