Palmer’s point

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Jolyon Palmer has hit out at his Re­nault team for not call­ing any team or­ders dur­ing the USGP. Palmer spent long pe­ri­ods of the race chas­ing team-mate Kevin Mag­nussen, de­spite the driv­ers be­ing on dif­fer­ent strate­gies. “Mainly I was stuck be­hind Kevin and I couldn’t do any­thing,” said Palmer. “For a lot of the race I was 1.5s be­hind and dam­ag­ing my tyres strug­gling to fol­low him. I knew I was quicker, but couldn’t get through. I was hop­ing the team might switch us.”
