2016 FORMULA 1 CANADIAN GRAND PRIX  Renault Sport Formula One Team contested a hard-fought Canadian Grand Prix with Kevin Magnussen finishing in sixteenth and Jolyon Palmer retiring due to a water leak. Kevin started from last position following Saturday's liaison with the wall and ran to a one-stop strategy. Jolyon made a promising start however loss of water pressure meant the team had to retire the car with 16 laps completed.

Kevin started the race in P22 as one of only two runners starting on Pirelli's yellow soft tyres. He changed to the purple ultrasoft tyres on lap 39.

Jolyon started the race in P16 on ultrasoft tyres. He retired from the race on lap 17 due to a water leak.

'Firstly I need to say thanks to my crew who worked so hard to build a new chassis for this race after my crash Saturday. This aspect really shows the teamwork which exists in the team and I'm happy to be part of it as we will all keep pushing hard. On track we struggled and P16 is not where we wanted to be. It was a cold track out there and we just couldn't get the performance we wanted. The race was pretty straightforward for me and sadly there weren't the opportunities to move forward. We definitely want better next time out.'

Jolyon Palmer, #30, R.S.16-02: Started P16, finished DNF

'The new engine was working well performance-wise and we made a lot of progress on the set-up; I was feeling good with the car out there even though it was cold and slippery. I received some contact from Carlos Sainz on the first lap then I was stuck behind one of the Manors early on, but once I was in clean air my pace felt good. I'm happy with the car so I'm looking forward to Baku. Certainly a little bit of luck wouldn't go amiss too.'

Fred Vasseur, Racing Director

    'Another weekend where all the team have all worked hard and progress has been made however it is not represented in the results. Jolyon has been much happier with his car this weekend and had decent potential in the race. It's a great shame we had to retire him so early and we are investigating the cause of the water pressure loss. Kevin had it all to do from the back of the grid so delivered solidly given the circumstances. The cold conditions in Canada certainly haven't suited us. Baku will be far hotter so we're hoping for a much needed change of fortunes.'
