RE­NAULT

Autosport (UK) - - RACE CENTRE -

A sec­ond con­sec­u­tive week­end of hefty grid penal­ties, al­beit pri­mar­ily caused by his own er­ror in Bel­gium. Hulken­berg’s pace was good, but Re­nault gam­bled on him stop­ping early and try­ing to get to the end on a set of softs. Anony­mous but not be­cause of his own per­for­mance. This wasn’t an easy week­end for Re­nault, but Sainz got the best out of the car in qual­i­fy­ing and the race to start sev­enth and fin­ish eighth. Those us­ing Re­nault power were on the back foot, so while Sainz did slip be­hind Perez dur­ing the race it was al­ways go­ing to be dif­fi­cult to stay ahead.
