Renault Sport Formula One Team experienced a character-building Gran Premio Heineken d'Italia at the Autodromo di Monza. Jolyon Palmer made up a number of positions after a spirited start however contact with Felipe Nasr – for which the Sauber driver was subsequently penalized – led to retirement on safety grounds. Kevin Magnussen also made a strong start and finished in seventeenth position.
Infiniti achieved a new global sales record in August. Total sales of over 17,150 were up 2 percent vs August 2015 representing the best ever August result. From January to August, Infiniti sold almost 145,000 vehicles, an increase of 6 percent versus the same period in 2015.
The Renault Sport Formula One Team unfortunately could not capitalize on its best-ever qualifying performance in today's Belgian Grand Prix. Kevin Magnussen had lined up twelfth, just in front of Jolyon Palmer for the 44-lap race. After a strong start, Jolyon was running seventh and Kevin eighth, but a heavy crash for Kevin on lap five led to his premature retirement from the race.
