2014 German GP: Renault Formula One F1 Race Recap

Renault-powered Infiniti Red Bull Racing finished the German Grand Prix in fourth and sixth positions following a thrilling race at the Hockenheimring. Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo battled the entire race with both Ferraris and the Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton to secure two top six positions and a valuable 20 points. The score consolidates the team’s second position in the constructors’ championship.

Key race points:

Sebastian Vettel captures fourth position. The reigning world champion moved up two places at the start and defended hard from Fernando Alonso to secure a valuable 12 points

Daniel Ricciardo crosses the line sixth after a superb comeback drive. The Australian had started in fifth but dropped to 15th while avoiding the first corner crash between Felipe Massa and Kevin Magnussen. He fought his way back past Raikkonen and Magnussen and was engaged in a tight battle with Lewis Hamilton and then Fernando Alonso until the very end of the race

Caterham F1 Team achieves a double finish with Kamui Kobayashi 16th and Marcus Ericsson 18th. The latter started from the pit lane following a parc fermé infringement

Jean-Eric Vergne finishes 13th for Scuderia Toro Rosso while Daniil Kvyat records a DNF. The Russian was running in the top ten until a clash with Sergio Perez on lap nine. He spun and pitted for new tyres and was caught in traffic from that point on, but an ignition problem with the Power Unit caused unburnt fuel to ignite in the exhausts on lap 45. His car caught fire and he retired on the spot.

Pastor Maldonado was 12th for Lotus F1 Team. After running in the top 12 Romain Grosjean retires on lap 27 with a cooling issue

Rémi Taffin, Head of Track Operations:

A fascinating race, with multiple battles from the very start. While finishing fourth is not the result we should be aiming for on a regular basis, it is positive to see the Red Bulls having the driveability and grip to fight on track and win positions. The new software introduced this weekend has helped in this respect and we aim to exploit even more in Hungary when the interaction with the Total fuel should be completely optimized.

We also need to work on reliability in the short time between Germany and Hungary as we’ve not had a 100% smooth weekend. The issues have been relatively small but some have had big consequences. We don’t believe there is anything that can’t be fixed but clearly we need to eliminate entirely before the summer break.

We are all looking forward to Hungary now, a track that demands low speed driveability and torque control rather than outright top speed. We believe it should suit the Energy F1-2014 a lot more so we should be able to break out of the routine of third and fourth positions we’ve got into recently.
