The prestigious journal L’equipe says, in a information
revealed on Sunday, that the Renault engine that the French manufacturer
introduced in the Monaco Grand Prix in the cars of Daniel Ricciardo and Kevin Magnussen and Max Verstappen and Jolyon
Palmer in Canada, there is a manufacturing defect in one of
the pieces of the same, which belongs to a faulty batch. This
problem makes the life of the engine is limited and it is feared that
not be able to endure the entire race to be held at the Red Bull Ring.
Renault gave an account of the problem in a few routine tests
made in the factory in Viry-Chatillon ten days ago, so
has only been possible to produce two engines with the problem
grinding. These two motors have been placed in the cars
of Daniel Ricciardo and Kevin Magnussen, Max Verstappen and
Jolyon Palmer could see his career compromised.
In any case, Renault has detected that the engine is not able to
to cover the distance of five Major Awards, which is the distance
recommended to complete the season without incurring a penalty. Both Ricciardo as Magnussen had
completed three (Monaco, Canada, and Europe), by two of Verstappen and
Palmer. That means that those thrusters are still far away to cover his mileage limit.
