Briton Palmer tops Formula Renault 2.0 Euro table arriving at Silverstone

Will Palmer – the younger brother of Renault Sport Formula One team Jolyon – leads the way as the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup arrives at Silverstone for its two UK rounds this coming weekend (13-14 May).

Palmer, racing for the French R-ace GP team, took a fourth place finish and then a win in the single-seater category’s opening two rounds of 2017 – held mid-April at the Italian F1 circuit of Monza.

That was enough to give him a one-point advantage over nearest challenger, his team-mate Sacha Fenestraz from France heading to Silverstone. Palmer had also set the fastest ever lap of the Monza track in a 2.0 FRenault car during the free practice sessions…

Notably the last two FRenault 2.0 Eurocupt titles have been won by British drivers – Lando Norris in 2016 and Jack Aitken in 2015.

Following his Monza victory, 20-year-old Palmer from Horsham said: “It's been a strong opening weekend of the championship for me. The pace has been really good all week so to finish fourth in race one was ultimately a bit disappointing given that, even though it was still a good points haul.

 

"It was great to put that right in race two with a good lap in qualifying to put me P2 on the grid and then a perfect race to pull away and take the win. Now I'm looking forward to the next round on home ground at Silverstone where I'm confident we can have a very good weekend.”

Silverstone’s races mark a hectic schedule for Palmer and fellow Brits Max Fewtrell, Dan Ticktum and Frank Bird who are also racing in the championship.

A week after Silverstone they will be in action at the popular street circuit of Pau in southern France (20-21 May). Barely a week later they then move on to the most famous street circuit of them all – Monaco – for their next two races which will support the glitz and glamour of the principality’s F1 Grand Prix (26-28 May).

 

Meanwhile Fewtrell – a member of the Renault Sport Academy – will arrive at Silverstone lying tenth in the FRenault standings after fifth and eighth-place results in Monza’s two races. The 17-year-old from Birmingham races for another French team, Tech1 Racing.

Red Bull Junior driver Ticktum (also 17 and from London) and Bird – racing for the British Arden and Fotec squads respectively – will be hoping Silverstone is where they score their first points of the season.
