Ocon: Renault’s instant speed gave them “great confidence” at Nurburgring | RaceFans Round-up

In the round-up: Esteban Ocon says Renault are encouraged by how easily they were able to unlock the performance of their car at the Nurburgring.

What they say

Renault were quickly up to speed despite limited practice running at the Nurburgring, said Ocon:

It’s quite good that we’ve shown that we can perform without much knowledge on the track and with a very limited amount of running. Obviously it’s the same for everybody but it’s been good to be able perform like that with only two sets of tyres between quali and to have the car that felt like that in qualifying with so little amount of time to change the set-up or to just make the car a little bit better like we would like. The car was performing very well on the high-downforce package.

It’s definitely giving us great confidence because we’ve been struggling in Barcelona and Budapest on those high downforce settings.
