The start of the first race at the Nürburgring, the sixth round of the championship.

The 2014 Formula Renault 3.5 Series season was a multi-event motor racing championship for open wheel, formula racing cars held across Europe. The championship featured drivers competing in 3.5 litre Formula Renault single seat race cars that conformed to the technical regulations for the championship. The 2014 season was the tenth Formula Renault 3.5 Series season organized by Renault Sport. The season began at Autodromo Nazionale Monza on 12 April and finished on 19 October at Circuito de Jerez. The series formed part of the World Series by Renault meetings at seven double header events, with additional events held at Monza (double header) and a single race in support of the Monaco Grand Prix.

Carlos Sainz Jr. clinched the championship title with seven race wins, after his compatriot and rival Roberto Merhi retired in the penultimate race of the season.[1] Sainz, Jr. also became the first Red Bull Junior Team driver to win the championship. Merhi was the only other driver to score more than two wins, but he lost the runner-up position to Pierre Gasly – another Red Bull backed driver – after retiring in the second Jerez race. Fortec Motorsports driver Oliver Rowland won races at Alcañiz and Jerez, finishing fourth. His teammate Sergey Sirotkin completed the top five with a win on home soil at Moscow Raceway. Will Stevens and Norman Nato were the other drivers to achieve race wins in the season; Stevens won at Monza and Jerez, bookending the season, while Nato was the winner of the Monaco Grand Prix support race, and also won at the Hungaroring.
