Renault Sport Formula One Team previews the tenth race weekend of the 2018 Formula 1 season, the Rolex British Grand Prix.
Drivers Nico Hülkenberg and Carlos Sainz share their thoughts on Silverstone, while our management and technical staff give the latest on the team and on the Renault R.S.18-R.E.18 package.
Cyril Abiteboul, Managing Director, Renault Sport Racing: “We know Silverstone will be a tough challenge but we will keep pushing to get back on target. It’s our second home race, just down the road from the factory, so another double finish would be a welcome fillip as we head towards the summer break.”
Nico Hülkenberg: “It’s a track that suits my driving style. Big, high-speed corners, a lot of downforce, which requires a bit of grit to get the most out of the car. It’s definitely encouraging to have a good record at Silverstone – five-points scoring finishes in a row there – so let’s get to work and aim to make it six this weekend.”
Carlos Sainz: “Silverstone is certainly up there as one of my favourite tracks on the Formula 1 calendar. It’s so fast, and simply a track for drivers. My favourite part of the track is easy to pick! Sector two! It’s probably the best sector of all circuits. Going fast through Copse gives you a buzz, but it gets even better through the next complex of Maggots, Becketts and Chapel as you find a rhythm with the car to go left-right-left and right again at very high-speed. It’s such a thrill.”
