The man himself doesn't think so.

If Renault really do want rid of Palmer, why not stick Kubica in the car? Hülkenberg will still score solid points, and Kubica *might* just dazzle - worth a shot.

I have never been a Palmer fan but he really hasn't had a fair crack of the whip this season. Something is wrong there for sure.

I hope they keep Jolyon in for the rest of the year, he seems to be getting on top of the car now, i appreciate he should have done it sooner but there you go, i know he isn't a favourite here but he really has been out of luck this year.

Don't get the Sainz hype - solid but surely this is a nonsense story. Do feel sorry for him at the moment.

Kubica all day long.

Sainz is a pro and so deserves a chance, he just gets on with it and hasn't been disheartened by Max being promoted before him

Why would he go to Renault? They have proven this year that they can only build one car. Palmer is over driving as he hasn't had a car that runs reliably over the week end. He is always playing catch up.

Renault are in F1 to sell more road cars, and I dont think Palmer is helping do that, half way through the season and still no points, I never rated him........I think its only a matter of time before Renault replace him with the driver skill and marketing power of Robert Kubica, it will be a PR fairy-tale story that Renault would love to show the world......as for Sainz, he aint nothing special, a solid driver for sure, but he has a long way to go yet considering he is only 22......Renault need an experienced driver that can grab the car by the scruff of the kneck and develop and drag it to performances its not supposed to be doing......Kubica all the way

while i would like to see Sainz get a promotion is this year's Renault really a promotion/step up? an exit deal for next year maybe but surely not at the moment.

also, while i dont highly rate Palmer i am curious to see what he can do now that the pressure is really mounting. if he cant get it together i am assuming he will be out for next year with no real option for another seat.

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.
