Renault F1 Re-Signs Jolyon Palmer for 2017 campaign.

Renault Sport Formula One Team is proud to announce that it will retain Jolyon Palmer for the 2017 season. Jolyon will join the recently-announced Nico Hülkenberg to complete the team’s 2017 race driver line-up.

Twenty-five year old Jolyon joined Renault Sport Formula One Team’s predecessor Lotus F1 Team as Third Driver at the start of the 2015 season, graduating to race driver for 2016 with Renault Sport Formula One Team. To date he has started 18 Grands Prix, scoring his first World Championship point at this year’s Malaysian Grand Prix. He is the 2014 GP2 Series Champion.

Jérôme Stoll, Renault Sport Racing Chairman: “We are delighted to retain Jolyon as our driver for the 2017 season. Jolyon has shown his hunger to develop with us as the team grows and we have been impressed with his increasingly strong performances on track as the season has progressed. We are confident that the combination of Jolyon and Nico Hülkenberg offers a very promising driving force to meet our goals. Jolyon understands the team’s spirit and motivates everyone he works with. The line-up of Jolyon and Nico harnesses the benefits of continuity and fresh blood. I am sure that having Nico as a team-mate will help push Jolyon to greater achievements. We thank Kevin Magnussen for his efforts in 2016 as he has done a great job for us this year. We wish him all the best for 2017 and beyond.”

Jolyon Palmer: “I’m over the moon to be racing with Renault Sport Formula One Team for a second season and I can’t wait to reward the team’s faith in me on track. Having worked out of Enstone since 2015 I can fully appreciate the development of the infrastructure this year. This means I share the excitement of the team looking to 2017 and our new car. For me, it’s been a steep learning curve driving in Formula 1 and I know that I am performing better than ever, and that there’s still more to come. There is tremendous drive and enthusiasm in Enstone and Viry looking to next year and I am honoured to be part of this.”

Viadex has been a proud sponsor of Jolyon during the course of the 2016 season and are proud to associate ourselves with a fast-paced, high technology sport that matches the industry we operate in.

Client Testimonials

One of the worlds leading online gaming software providers has been a very happy client since 2002:

  • Why have you chosen to work with Viadex?

    Initially it was simply a matter of supply needs; it was convenient. Over the years the relationship has shifted from one-off purchase and supply, to a mutually beneficial partnership. I continue to invest in the relationship with Viadex because it offers a lot of advantages to me as Head of IT for a global business. These advantages include but are not limited to having an advocate working for us in discussions with vendors, having someone to make contact with vendors and either arrange proof of concept engagements or provide some background and advise relating to the vendor.

  • What are the primary benefits and/or results Viadex brings to your organisation?

    Viadex understands our business, Viadex recognises that we are a global business requiring supply to many locations, invoicing to varied entitles and that we exist in a market where there are real advantages in terms of getting to market quickly and as a result we have high expectations when it comes to logistics turnaround times.

    The Viadex account team takes time to visit our IT team and understand our project roadmap which enables them to align to our needs, as well as to offer potential solutions to address on-going challenges. Viadex recognizes the high level of technical skill in our organisation and helps us connect with the appropriate calibre of representatives from various vendors.

    Viadex assists with managing our support relationships with vendors, and taking the above into account they also help us bypass the lower levels of support and obtain quality support levels.

    Viadex advises us of how best to handle vendors, how to maximise value in our engagements and how to achieve the best return on our investments by considering alternative vendors, taking note of the timing of our purchases and optimally structuring our investment.

  • What is the process of working with Viadex like?

    Viadex has a friendly, open engagement with us. Viadex invests in face time with multiple touch-points to provide a service across the IT spectrum. The relationship is professionally owned by an account executive who is assisted by a technical team and a procurement team. The friendly and generally informal engagements suit my style; however Viadex has a professional and formal image for the times when it is appropriate. Viadex strives to respond to mails with minimal delay and is always available to take a call.

  • Why would you recommend Viadex?

    As Head of IT I appreciate not having to sweat over the details of procurement and vendor management. I am enabled to focus on delivering the business solution knowing that I can rely on Viadex to represent our best interests in commercial discussions. Viadex presents their proposed solution for review after doing the legwork. I enjoy working with the Viadex team, I have learnt a lot from them and I believe they have learnt from us too. It is a true partner relationship.
