A quartet of young chargers in the City of Love

Seventeen years ago, Benetton-Renault launched its 2001 B201 in one of the most beautiful locations in the world, St Mark's Square in Venice.

Jenson Button and Giancarlo Fisichella were the team's drivers, with Mark Webber and a juvenile Fernando Alonso contracted as test drivers.

While there were no Grand Prix winners in this picture at the time, but the four men would eventually total 59 F1 victories in their respective careers, with the still active Alonso hoping to add to his 32-win tally this year.
