2016 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix, Sunday

 


Renault Sport Formula One Team’s Kevin Magnussen enjoyed his and the team’s second highest finish of the season with tenth position in the Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix.


Kevin took advantage of a stellar start and ran for most of the race inside the top ten. Jolyon Palmer was not so lucky today, with a suspected slow puncture from debris at the start of the race forcing an earlier than planned first pit stop. Running thereafter out of sequence, Jolyon finished in fifteenth.



  Kevin started the race from P15 with new set of Pirelli’s purple ultra soft compound tyres.


  Jolyon started the race in P18 on new super soft tyres. With a suspected slow puncture he pitted on lap 11 for a set of new super softs. He made a second stop on lap 34 for a set of new softs.
 


Kevin Magnussen, #20, R.S.16-04: Started P15, finished P10



“I’m very happy for the whole team as this must be a boost for all of us. It’s been a very demanding season as we all want to score points at every race, but that’s not been possible.


Nevertheless we all keep fighting and a result like today shows why we fight and why we never give up. The team nailed it with the strategy, with the start and with the balance of the car.


To drive a race like this and not to win it; it feels strange because for me it felt perfect.”

 

Jolyon Palmer, #30, R.S.16-05: Started P18, finished P15


“That was a tough race and we didn’t have any breaks come our way. I lost out with the shenanigans at the start and probably collected some debris as I had an early slow puncture too.


We pitted pretty early and this meant we had to run for longer subsequent stints which meant nursing the tyres more than if we’d run the more balanced stint length planned.


 I lost a lot of time behind the Manors but it wasn’t possible to pass them on this track. The positive from today is we’ve seen that there’s still scope to get points if everything goes your way; that’s what I’m gunning for in Sepang.”
 




Fred Vasseur, Team Principal


“A strong and measured race from Kevin with some great strategy and exceptional pit stop work meant we scored for the second time this season. Jolyon kept pushing despite a frustrating race for him with a slow puncture early on.


We can see how everyone at Enstone and Viry, whether at the track or back at base, keeps on pushing and we will continue to do this no matter how difficult the challenge.”
