Re­nault on the up

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

For­mula 1 rookie Jolyon Palmer reck­ons his Re­nault team has the re­sources to out-de­velop other teams this year as it fights to get it­self back to the front. The revived works team lost ground with a lengthy takeover process over the win­ter, so is run­ning largely a car­ried-over car de­sign. Palmer, who just missed points on his F1 de­but in Aus­tralia, said: “I’m mas­sively con­fi­dent we can im­prove on such per­for­mance [as Mel­bourne]. Con­sid­er­ing the takeover was just be­fore Christ­mas, the money started flow­ing late and pro­duc­tion was very, very late. But we have up­grades com­ing all the time and I think we can out-de­velop a lot of our ri­vals.”
