In its second generation, it has been developed to enhance steering feel and feedback even further without compromising comfort. The INFINITI Q60 features an all-new electronic suspension system, Dynamic Digital Suspension (DDS), which monitors the vehicle’s body roll, pitch and bounce rate to deliver a secure ride by reducing unwanted steering feel and vibrations.
Renault Sport Formula One Team's Kevin Magnussen enjoyed his and the team's second highest finish of the season with 10th position in the Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix. Kevin took advantage of a stellar start and ran for most of the race inside the top 10. Jolyon Palmer was not so lucky, with a suspected slow puncture from debris at the start of the race forcing an earlier than planned first pit stop. Running thereafter out of sequence, Jolyon finished in fifteenth.
