The MGU-K and the clutch these oils day-to-Jolyon Palmer


Competing at home always gives an extra, but the first day of the GP of Great Britain has been anything but positive for Jolyon Palmer. The british driver missed a good stretch of FP1 by a problem in the MGU-K, while in the FP2 a top and a failure in the clutch also burdened your activity on track. Much more quiet has been the Friday for the German Nico H├╝lkenberg at Silverstone. The German has left positive sensations with his seventh place finish in the second free.

Jolyon Palmer finished eighteenth in the two sessions of free. Beyond the result, the feelings for the british pilot has not been positive for the different problems in our lives: “I missed half of the morning session because I had to replace the shaft in the MGU-K, but when I was able to jump to the track I felt pretty good with the car. The evening also was happy with the car, especially with the soft tyre, but all was not well“.

The pilot of Renault was a straight end of FP2 rather complicated: “When I put the tires superblandas I found that there was no grip. I had a spinning top and then I had to fight for the car to operate in a correct way. Unfortunately, we had to stop the car for a long time with a clutch problem. We hope to have a better luck tomorrow“.


A script completely opposite has starred Nico H├╝lkenberg. The German has gone from less to more, to finish the day with the seventh fastest time: “, we Had two sessions of free without major problems today. Among the works performed was the test of a new background plane this afternoon. Now we have to analyze what it has brought us and see what you have done for us“.

considering their performance, the German rider added: “The terms of the rhythm, we have a bit of work ahead to find a little more balance and performance in general, especially in regard to long runs. This means that we have before us a little bit of preparation work before the end of the day and until the classification of morning. Despite this, I am wanting to deal with it“.
