The work of Renault this weekend in Austria has returned to stay without prize tangible at the end both cars outside the points for the second weekend in a row. This fact, coupled with the eight points of Haas, makes the seventh position away at a distance of 11 points, significant given that the team only has added 18 until the time.
The production of points of the French team has been complimentary in its entirety Nico Hülkenberg. The German, however, sank his options to add more points to his locker in a disastrous departure in which he fell to the bottom of the grill, although this allowed him to dodge the incidents of the output. Eventually, he gained some positions, but that only enabled him to finish in thirteenth position.
The German pilot lamented his bad start, as well as other problems that were manifested during the race in the behaviour of the car: “it was a difficult race for me. I have had a out horrible, I made that skipped the system of anti-draught when I released the clutch, I was almost last before the last curve. Since then, it was clear that it was going to be a late difficult. We had problems with overheating in the superblandos, in addition with the balance and the grip. We decided to stop soon and put the soft, but the leaders were near, I pulled out the blue flag twice, and I lost a lot of time. We need to review what has happened, and to concentrate at top in Silverstone”.
For his part, Jolyon Palmer he went back to finish in eleventh position for the third time this season, falling again to a step of the points you have dodged until now. The british pilot started in sixteenth position and was able to take advantage of the bounce ahead to gain positions, as well as the slow pace of the McLaren with Stoffel Vandoorne. Had options to reach the tenth place, but was unable to wrest the position to the Williams of Lance Stroll.
After the race, Palmer was left with the positive of the weekend, in spite of his situation, and is confident that Silverstone will allow him to debut in the top 10 this year: “I Had to Lance Stroll in front for 40 laps and couldn’t pass it, which is frustrating. I have to concentrate on qualifying better, but over the weekend the pace seemed to improve, so that in general there are some positive. Now it’s my home race and Silverstone is a great layout with a lot of fast corners, where I love to ride, so I hope that is the one that makes me get points”.
