Renault Sport Formula One Team’s Jolyon Palmer secured a season-best result in today’s Grand Prix de Monaco with eleventh position after 78 laps around the most iconic circuit in Formula 1.
Jolyon started from P16 and drove a mature race to finish just 1.3 seconds away from the points.
Jolyon Palmer, #30, R.S.17-03: Started P16, finished P11.
“I’m happy with the race, the pace was pretty good and there were no mistakes. I enjoyed it; to hustle the car around Monaco for 78 laps was great and the tyres were hanging on, so you could really push the whole way through, which was stellar. It’s pretty hard to overtake here, so eleventh from P16 was it, and just one second away from getting the first point of the year! It felt much better than P11 and we can take this momentum to Canada.”
