Jolyon Palmer is confident that he and Renault can end their barren run after he collected 12th position at the Austrian Grand Prix.
Palmer started from 20th position on the grid but worked his way forwards to finish just a couple of places outside of the top 10, as he chases his first points in the sport.
"I’m quite happy with the race," said the rookie, as he beat team-mate Kevin Magnussen.
"We just needed that little bit of extra luck and we could have been right there within the points.
"The car was okay, it felt better than in the last round and this was probably one of my strongest races personally.
"Had we needed to change to Soft tyres when the Safety Car came out, we might have been able to make a pit stop then get to the end on that set to score points.
"I’ve been feeling stronger and stronger over the last few races and knowing we could have done well makes me hopeful for points at the next round at Silverstone."
