Renault Sport Formula One Team’s Jolyon Palmer progressed into Q2 and qualified fifteenth for tomorrow’s race in Montreal, Canada.
Jolyon Palmer, #30, R.S.17-03, Q: P15 1:14.293 FP3: P15 1:14.102
“I had a tidy lap, which I was happy with in Q1 and the car felt good. For some reason in Q2 I wasn’t able to find enough grip or get the tyres turned on and I ended up with a slower lap. I’m pleased to be back in Q2, but disappointed not to be further up the order. We know the tyres are pretty sensitive so we just have to get on with it in the race. This is a track where you can overtake and you often see safety cars so hopefully things go our way tomorrow.”
