After his P10 finish at the Marina Bay Circuit, Kevin Magnussen was left smiling after securing Renault’s seventh point of the season.
The Dane started 15th on the grid and drove impressively to gain the French Manufacturers’ second points-scoring race of 2016.
Magnussen was especially delighted with the team’s strategy and the work they put into the car over the course of the weekend.
“I’m very happy for the whole team as this must be a boost for all of us,” he explained.
“It’s been a very demanding season as we all want to score points at every race, but that’s not been possible.
“Nevertheless we all keep fighting and a result like this shows why we fight and why we never give up.
“The team nailed it with the strategy, with the start and with the balance of the car. To drive a race like this and not to win it; it feels strange because for me it felt perfect.”
