Appears to an unconfirmed rumor at this point? Why not post this in the silly season thread with all the other speculation?

Be surprised if they pay 8m to replace a driver who brings sponsorship.

With Sainz you'd get an OK driver, who is nowhere near as good as only he and his Dad think, who has a petulant attitude - and you'd get the Dad too.

But then again Abiteboul has a serious habit of making stupid decisions

Sainz just an ok driver?!?

Perhaps Sainz will bring 9 million or Red Bull release in return for fully turned up engines 😉

So please tell us about your bad encounter with Senior and Junior that formed such a damning appraisal...

Agree totes about Cyril though. He is not qualified for that role.

If Sainz went to Renault, that means that hopefully Gasly gets the chance with STR that he deserves. Everyone would be a winner

I'll believe it when I see it; but it wouldn't be a bad move for Sainz.

Yes, seems a bit harsh Peebee, do tell. (Anyone else missing WSR 3.5?) Oops, OT : p

I've seen nothing to suggest petulance in Sainz. I think he's at worst a very solid driver and at best really first-rate - remember he was a match for Verstappen at STR. Max was promoted ahead of him to lock him in when other teams came sniffing around.

Can't really see a mid season team swap, but it would be interesting to see what Sainz could do with a Renault given the Hulk's performance

I know it's personal opinion, but I'm not seeing Sainz as the 'next big thing'......

Better than Palmer and a number of others, but not worth shelling out $8m for....
