For all those Formula One enthusiasts you will be impressed to hear that Renault Sport Formula One Team made a welcome return to the points courtesy of Nico Hülkenberg’s sixth place finish in a fast-paced and action-packed 2018 Formula 1 Rolex British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
Under clear blue skies and blazing sun, Nico capitalised on an excellent start and strong opening lap – moving from his eleventh place grid slot into sixth, keeping cool and composed through a one-stop strategy with multiple safety cars to finish in that position at the chequered flag. Carlos Sainz also made a superb start from sixteenth on the grid to ninth at the end of the first lap, running a two-stop strategy from which he ultimately retired after a collision at Copse on lap 38, while in the hunt for a top ten finish.
Today’s action sees Renault Sport Formula One Team consolidate fourth position in the Constructors’ Championship with a 19 point cushion over fifth.
On a track that would be challenging the Renault Formula One team managed to outscore their direct competitors thanks to an excellent start, good strategy, well executed stops and an outstanding drive from Nico. Cyril Abiteboul, Team Principal said; “It’s a great reward, almost a relief after we were on the back foot following our difficult qualifying yesterday. With a good haul of points we can head to races where we hope to be more competitive, but the result should not distract us from looking at improving our pace on Saturday to give us an improved chance on Sunday.”
