2009 Formula Renault 3.5 Series season
Previous: 2008 Next: 2010

The 2009 Formula Renault 3.5 Series season began on 18 April at the Circuit de Catalunya and finished on 25 October at the brand-new Ciudad del Motor de Aragón in Alcañiz. It was the fifth season of the Renault-backed single-seater category. International DracoRacing driver Bertrand Baguette won the championship by a comfortable margin, having dominated the second half of the season. His team won their respective championship, ahead of Carlin Motorsport.

Regulation Changes[edit]

Technical[edit]

After debuting in the 2008 season, the aerodynamics of the current Dallara chassis underwent "minor enhancements inspired by the 2009 F1 regulations".[1]

Sporting[edit]

A number of changes were made to the sporting regulations in order to reduce costs and better showcase drivers' talent:[2]

  • The Thursday test sessions at each meeting were scrapped, replaced with two one-hour sessions on the Friday.
  • The duration of each race was extended to 44 minutes + one lap.
  • A bonus point was awarded to the driver who climbed the most places during each race.

In addition, at the halfway point of the season (after the Hungaroring round) the championship leader got the opportunity to demonstrate a Renault R28 F1 car at a World Series meeting. After the seventh race of the season both Marcos Martínez and Bertrand Baguette were tied at the top of the standings, but by virtue of his three race wins, Martínez received the prize drive during the next round at Silverstone.[3]

And just like in previous years, the eventual champion earned a full test with the ING Renault F1 team at the end of the season.[4] Baguette won the title at the Nürburgring, to earn that test with the team.
