The RF1 Driver Programme, formerly known as Renault Driver Development, is a program to support racing drivers since 2002 in their racing series. The programme was created by Renault F1 in 2002.

Selected drivers have to prove their potential on track and their athletics qualities. They promote Renault in the world.

In 2011, the programme was renamed LRGP Academy, following the rebranding of the team to "Lotus Renault GP".[1]

In 2012, the programme was renamed Lotus F1 Team iRace Professional Programme.

In 2013, the programme was renamed Lotus F1 Junior Team.
