BELGIAN GP RACE


23 August 2015
DANIIL KVYAT, Finish Position: 4th, Start Position: 12th
It was a very interesting race and really good fun today. I had a lot of overtaking opportunities and the car performed well. The strategy from the team to keep me out during the virtual safety car was good and we were able to have a strong last stint. The team did a good job and we scored some solid points. We should be happy with the performance today and hopefully we can continue this form over the next few races.

DANIEL RICCIARDO, Finish Position: DNF, Start Position: 5th
I had a good start jumping up to third and the race was going okay. We didnt have a great balance with the Prime, I was struggling a little, but we were hoping to come on strong with the Option and have a good last stint. Its disappointing not to finish, we are not sure what the issue is but the team are investigating. I lost power going into the chicane, everything switched off, including the dash. It looks like its electrical but well see what the investigation brings.

CHRISTIAN HORNER, Team Principal: Dany drove a very strong race to finish fourth from his starting grid position of twelfth. He produced some very strong overtaking manoeuvres and the strategy worked very well, so we were able to score some very useful points. Its a shame for Daniel; he had a great start to move up to third. He was running a similar strategy to Dany and Im sure he would have been challenging for the podium. It was a lost opportunity but overall a reasonable weekend for the team.

MATTHIEU DUBOIS, Renault: Todays race was very eventful. Unfortunately Daniel had a technical problem that caused a power shutdown and he stopped on track. We need to investigate fully why this happened as it is a missed opportunity. Daniil had a solid race to get back into fourth position. We have a lot of work to do for the rest of the season to get things straight, but equally a lot of motivation to do so.
