Renault racer Jolyon Palmer after the first session of tests in Barcelona expressed his admiration for new car S. R. 17, stating that the team was able to make a big step forward compared to last year.
“We have added where lost last year, – quotes the AUTOSPORT Palmer. – The team has made significant progress and are now much better prepared.
Heavy experience gained last year helped us. Even from the point of view of the balance of the car became much more stable. Each time leaving the track, I know what to expect, and it’s a very pleasant feeling.”
After the first tests in Barcelona, the Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel has said that changes to the regulations can be compared with the aspirin that relieved the car of all of last year’s diseases. Commenting on the words of four-time world champion, Palmer said, laughing, “If he thinks he had problems with last year’s machine, he just doesn’t know what it was like to pilot a Renault!
We made a big step forward, and now I’m driving a car with a big smile on my face because the sensations are completely different.
The car really became balanced, and now you can attack where you want.
We know what to expect when you press on the brake pedal or turning the steering wheel. The tools that we have to change the balance and the settings work perfectly”.
