Cyril Abiteboul has revealed Renault are sticking with their driver Jolyon Palmer despite the lack of points in a attempt to build him up!….
Jolyon Plamer has suffered a difficult few weekends, sadly just being outside the points in many of the races.
The problem remains as well, with his internal benchmark being Nico Hulkenberg who has had a much better time scoring 14 points so far, overall.
However, Cyril Abiteboul will stick with the driver with the intention of bringing him up to speed on the grid.
“I think during the weekend, he had on occasion glimpses of a good performing package overall – a combination of the car, the set-up, the balance and himself driving – we could see that and again in particular in qualifying.”
“But I think it’s in general on Saturday, that’s the issue, we put the car on the Tarmac, it immediately works and some of the times you put it on the Tarmac and it doesn’t work and you have not changed a lot.” Cyril Continued.
“On Saturday, he was not happy in the morning. Going into qualifying it was not better and on Sunday it didn’t improve. We have to look into that – we are committed to make this work.”
“But you know – that’s five races into the season, so we also have more statistics to understand what is working and what is not working.”
