Renault endured a tough weekend at Silverstone although Nick Heidfeld did leave the Northamptonshire circuit with four points in the bag on Sunday. From a lowly sixteenth on the grid, the 34-year-old progressed to eighth in the race.
“We saw on Saturday that this would be a tough weekend but as usual I said, ‘Never give up’,” the German commented. “I had a good start, but the first few corners were incredibly tight and I was happy to get through them without any damage to the car.
“The big question for the race was when to change from the Intermediates to the Slicks and we were one of the first to do this. It was a good call, however we didn’t get as much of an advantage as you can sometimes get from timing your stop well.
“After that it was an interesting race for me as I had to look after my tyres and at the same time I had to attack and also defend at different times, particularly with Michael (Schumacher) and Adrian (Sutil).
“Finding the balance between attacking, fighting and not killing the tyres was not only very satisfying, but it also worked out well for us with four valuable points.”
In the second Renault, Russia’s Vitaly Petrov started 14th and finished 12th.
