Renault Austrian16b– Renault Sport Formula One Team driver Jolyon Palmer was a half-spin away from his first Formula 1 points as both he and Kevin Magnussen moved up the order in a hot and fast-paced Hungarian Grand Prix.

Kevin finished in P15 after starting from P19.

In contrast, the Hungaroring requires drivers to make full use of their spoilers to maximise grip on the narrow, winding track. Read More »
