Renault’s second car failed to finish the Singapore Grand Prix again this year. Frenchman Romain Grosjean did, however, manage to keep his car out of the wall at ‘Piquet corner’ (Turn 17), unlike on Friday.
Brake temperatures reportedly soared and forced the Frenchman to retire on Lap 3 of the race, and the young Frenchman didn’t hold back in explaining his personal disappointment with the weekend. "This is the worst weekend I’ve ever had," he told the crowd of reporters.
The team, now managed by Bob Bell, has struggled with high brake temperatures all weekend and do not appear to have mastered the problem, according to Grosjean. "I lost the brakes and the team just can’t understand it," he added.
