Wards Renault Nico Hulkenberg and Jolyon Palmer was pleased with the race in Monaco, despite the fact that the German was unable to finish, and the Briton became only the 11th.
“Today we can earn some points, admitted Nico Hulkenberg. We not only have a great feel in tenth place, but was able to do a little more break forward. Eighth or ninth place was for us, but in Monaco you have to stay in the game…
It all happened quite suddenly – I saw, as the car began to emit smoke, on the radio, I was asked to stop the car – diagnosis: failure of transmission.
Of course, we were disappointed by it, but this incident does not diminish our potential. In Montreal we get back in the fight.”
Jolyon Palmer added: “I’m happy with the race because we were able to avoid mistakes and to demonstrate a high tempo. I liked the reel 78 laps of Monaco, with tires too, so you can constantly attack!
Here is quite difficult to overtake, so the 11th place from the 16th was the maximum result is not enough to just seconds before the first points of the year. Still the feeling is much nicer than just from the 11-th place, so we will try to keep the momentum to Canada”.
