Great effort from Hulkenburg today. The car looking much better than Oz and getting Nico in there was a top move by RSF1 this year...top driver in my opinion.

Good effort - Palmer 10th and the Hulk 7th.
Should be a chance for some points tomorrow.

Have RF1 finally made some progress?

The comment was made after the interview with Christian Horner. Were any engine mods given to Red Bull at the same time as for the Renault Team?

Renault Sport Formula One Team’s Nico Hülkenberg has qualified in seventh position for the second Grand Prix in a row whilst Jolyon Palmer qualified in the top ten for the first time in his Formula 1 career, at the Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix. Today’s qualifying result was the first double Q3 appearance for Renault Sport Formula One Team.

Nico Hülkenberg, #27, R.S.17-02, Q: P7 1:29.842 FP3: P8 1:32.933
“That was one of my best qualifying laps together with my pole in Brazil 2010. It’s quite a tricky track to get a perfect lap here, but I think I extracted the maximum possible today. The team has done a great job all through the weekend so I’m very proud and happy right now. Looking to the race, I’m a bit cautious with predictions as we had a great qualifying last time out, then the circumstances of the race undid our good work. We just need to get some good Easter egg points tomorrow.”

Jolyon Palmer, #30, R.S.17-01, Q: P10 1:31.074 FP3: P20: 1:34.417
“It’s my best ever qualifying; Q3 for the first time, and I’ve seen a full hour of qualifying, which is nice. I’m happy, especially as we had a tough weekend up until now, trying to extract the performance from the car. I got my head down with my engineers and we made some changes before qualifying making the car much better. I didn’t put in a fantastic Q3 lap so it could have gone better, but we do stand a good chance to score points tomorrow.”

Alan Permane, Sporting Director:
We’re optimistic for a strong race tomorrow with both cars in the points.

How was qualifying for the team?
We’re obviously very happy with today’s performance. Nico put in excellent laps all the way through the qualifying sessions, not only to be ahead of both the Williams, but also in P7 on the cleaner side of the track. Jo staged a fantastic recovery after a tricky weekend so far; following a difficult FP3 by improving steadily all the way through qualifying, for his first top ten grid position.

What are the considerations for tomorrow’s race?
The track temperature is unlikely to be as extreme as we’ve seen so far this weekend, which should be kinder on the tyres. The twilight race means cooler temperatures anyway but it will be another step cooler tomorrow. Our cars have been working well so far this weekend, so there’s nothing to fear ahead of the race. We’re hopeful of a straightforward Grand Prix where we secure our first points of the year.

They run the same spec engines. Given this is the third race they'll still be running the same power units they started with.

It looks like they are not far away from Ferrari but still a long way back from Mercedes.

The Hulk did well today. The car is getting quicker. Not sure how long they can keep going with Palmer though

I'd give Palmer a couple more chances as it's not all his fault but it doesn't look good. Eddie Jordan recons Alonso could be on his way back to Renault for 2018, clearly it's Alonso's choice but would be good to see. Renault looking like a proper outfit again

Palmer just isn't having any luck at all at the moment. Something is going to have to change sharpish at McLaren, absolute joke what happened to Alonso today, can't see him continuing much longer.

I'm certain palmer will be out of a seat for next year, maybe even cut out early this season. No surprise Sirotkin is taking part in Friday sessions. Linking him up and take his money.

I also think this'll be Alonsos last year in F1. His ego is such that I don't think merc or Ferrari would have him, Renault will be similar to McLaren (work in progress) and red bull have a pool of younger talent leaning alonso nowhere to go.

Brundle hit the nail on the head though yesterday. Such a crying shame not to have a driver like that competing at the sharp end and getting amongst it.

Unfortunate race for Renault in Azerbaijan,
Palmer on the back foot from the start with problems arising from Fridays fire & Hulk running wide on cold tyres after an extended safety car period .
The race as a whole was one of the best for a long time regarding incidents & entrainment.

Another thrilling race, especially in the last couple of laps.
Good results for Hulk but misery for Palmer with a hydraulic failure on the formation lap.

Hopefully some signs that Renault are getting on top of things and have found a good development direction.

What annoys me the most is Red Bull rebadged Renault's engine with Tag Heuer and does everything better than Renault. Disapprove

I think that Renault will admit that Red Bull's chassis is better than theirs

I suspect that is more to do with the 'Adrian Newey' effect on the car, not necessarily the engine.

Renault needs to invest someone like this fellow, such a shame. It's like seeing HAAS beating a Ferrari car in a circuit.. Shocked

Seems a Renault powered McLaren in 2018 is becoming even more likely with some Renault F1 top brass been shown coming out of the McLaren motorhome.

Well it's true. McLaren-Renault in 2018, Carlos Sainz to join the works Renault team with Hulkm and presumably Honda will go to power Torro Rosso...

Red Bull will be forced to use Honda for both teams from 2019, I feel so sorry for them. Disapprove
