Fred Vasseur praised Jolyon Palmer after the Briton secured his first point of the season in the Malaysian Grand Prix, with the result proving that everyone within the Renault Sport F1 team are still pushing for points in 2016.

The team principal of the Enstone-based team also felt Kevin Magnussen could have been in points contention but for the first lap clash with Esteban Gutierrez and Daniil Kvyat that gave him a broken front wing and also affected the cooling ducts on his brakes.

“Congratulations to Jo for scoring his first point in Formula One,” said Vasseur. “After a disappointing qualifying yesterday he got his head down and delivered a very good race.

“We ran to an aggressive strategy and Jo did everything required to make this work so a great effort from him and the team today.

“Kevin was unfortunate to be caught out as the result of an incident ahead on the first lap. Thanks to his strong qualifying, he was well placed for a decent points-scoring position, but there was nothing he could do.

“Today we saw once more that everyone in the team is pushing in the same direction and we will continue to fight for every point possible for the remaining five races this season.”
