Fruitful day for Renault

By on Friday, August 25, 2017

Renault Sport Formula One Team ended the first day of the Belgian Grand Prix weekend with Nico Hülkenberg leading the charge for the team with the seventh-fastest lap time.

Both Renault drivers completed 47 laps of the Spa Francorchamps circuit, the most of any team. Today’s session programmes ran without trouble, however rain interrupted the end of FP2.

“It got a little fruity out there at the end of the day with the rain, but we had a decent Friday and could show decent enough pace in the dry", Hulkenberg said.

"It was the usual work on set-up and we made positive steps to get a positive balance and harmony around the track. It’s going to be interesting to see what the weather does for the rest of the weekend as we didn’t expect as much rain as we saw today; that’s one of the delights of Spa.”

Jolyon Palmer posted the tenth-fastest time of the day.

“I love Spa as a circuit so it was great to be able to get some good work done on the car throughout today’s sessions
", says Palmer.

"By the end of FP1 the car felt pretty special. FP2 was interrupted by the rain, but we were able to get further understanding of the tyres before the heavens opened. It was a good start to my weekend so I’m hopeful it continues in a positive manner.”
