Palmer has been a bit unlucky not to have scored at least one point in the last five races, he's been close, but things haven't been going his way

Palmer saving his seat and F1 future is becoming for me one of the more interesting story lines for this season imo.

i would like to see how it plays out.
I agree, unlike most on here i rate Jolyon quite highly, i hope he is still in place for Hungary, a track he has gone well at before in junior formula, and gets a fair crack with all the shiny new bits bolted onto the car.

I remember him in Singapore 2013 chasing down and overtaking Nasr for the win. He looked good and when he won the series he seemed to be last of the late brakers overtaking everyone. But he has not delivered in 18 months (plus free practices). Gp2/F2 has gone down in my estimation a bit and shows Vandoorne, Gasly and Leclerc it ain't easy jumping up to F1. I reckon Palmer will see out the year and then be replaced by Sainz

Sainz is going to Renault from the next round in Hungary???


We'll have to wait a bit longer to see Sainz in a Renault I think. 2018 is a more realistic chance of that happening.

Renault have come and said Palmer is staying for the Hungaroroing. So it's not going to happen

I was grimly amused whilst he was attacking the press for rumourmongering, he studiously omitted to say he was staying until the end of the season.

And I've no problem keeping Palmer until the end of the season if it was me. He's no Max Verstappen but he has been dogged by some pretty nasty luck, so he deserves to complete the season.

If it was my decision I'd leave Palmer in for Hungary, see how Kubica gets on at the test then make a call for the rest of the season. If Kubica has a good test stick him in the car for the rest of the year (assuming he can get a licence). If Kubica is closer to Hulkenberg than Palmer sign Kubica up for next year, if he's not close then go for Sainz for next year. Either way Palmer is out on his arse next year - it just hasn't happened for him.

If Robert can do the post-Hungary test, then he will have the mileage needed to get his license back. I sure hope that'll be enough to put his butt in that seat.

While I think the regulations for superlicense are black and white for a new driver, I think discretion will play the better part here and Robert shouldn't have any issues getting a superlicense asap if he wants it.

In regards to the original thread subject, if Honda ends up in the tail of the '18 STR, would Mr Sainz be running to the exit even harder??

As it currently stands, and the test isn't finished yet, Kubica has posted a time only half a second off Palmers quali time last weekend. Maybe it will be Robert, not Carlos to Renault ?

Sincerely hope not. That said isn't it sad that someone with as little practice as he has had, can drive one of these cars competitively? Just demonstrates howw dumbed down Formula 1 is these days.
