Jolyon Palmer will have a new chassis to face the GP of Canada, every time that the chassis used in Monaco has not been able to be recovered by Renault. It is worth remembering that the british pilot suffered a strong crash at the start / finish straight of the urban design when he lost control of the Renault R. S. 16 because of the wet asphalt. In this way, Palmer will enjoy a package completely new on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, in addition to brand new this third chassis you’ll also enjoy the new spec Renault engine his teammate Kevin Magnussen was already used in Monte-carlo.
the start of The season has been very complicated for Jolyon Palmer, to such an extent that it is one of the six pilots who has still not managed to add any point into their locker especially, a figure that contrasts with the six points earned by Kevin Magnussen at the discreet performance of Renault. And on this debut in the Formula 1, the briton has already used two chassis are different. The first change took place on the occasion of the GP of Spain, every time that Palmer accused problems of ‘feeling’ to the chassis with which it had contested the first four races of the season.
luckily, the chassis R. S. 16-04 was almost ready for use, as explained by the Technical Director of Renault, , Nick Chester: “The incident that took Jolyon implies that we will use a new chassis for Montreal. The car collided with the barriers was at an oblique angle, so that damaged the front part of the chassis, and since we have a new chassis available makes all the sense to introduce this new unit. Fortunately, the chassis R. S. 16-04 was quite advanced in its construction, so we just needed to complete the installation of the fuel cell and the wiring so that it is ready for Canada”.
