Renault Sport Formula One Team’s Jolyon Palmer qualified 16th ahead of tomorrow's Austrian Grand Prix, missing out on two Q2 by the slenderest of margins - just a couple of hundredths-of-a-second.
Jolyon Palmer, #30, R.S.17-03, Q: P16 1:06.345 FP3: P14 1:06.595
“I knew qualifying was going to be tight. The car feels better and the performance is closer this weekend so it’s a shame that we couldn’t hook it up in end but there is overall progress. We’ll look to have a good start and aim to get in the points tomorrow.”
