    Palmer gets the boot, Sainz moves in

    So Renault have just confirmed that Sainz will be joining them from Austin onwards, which in turn clears the way for Gasly and Kyvat to see out the season with Toro Rosso.

    All I want to know is how is this going to affect my Fgp team?

    About time I say. Palmer should not be driving in F1 even if his father paid 100 mln.

    Well even though his father pays millions ,and only later in the season has he pulled his finger out ,although his car was disappointing in the early part of the season whilst Hulkenbergs was less troublesome I think he is a better driver than Ericson and his team mate ,who at one time was lined up to be a team mate for Hamilton Maybe Sauber could give Palmer a race before the end of the season ,and let's see if the Sauber is a dog or Palmer too much of a pussy

    Thank God. It was painful watching Nico in the points while Jolyon was tootling around in 14th.

    The bizarre end result of this strange game of musical (Formula 1) chairs is that Kvyat gets his drive back. Does Red Bull have no one else worthier in its junior drivers pipeline any more?

    I think that's rather unfair on Wehrlein. As far as I know, one of the friction points between Kaltenborn and the new Sauber owner was the fact that she insisted on giving both drivers equal treatment while the Swedish owner wanted to favor Ericsson, so it might just be that Pascal might be getting worse machinery. I don't think his skills were highly rated by most teams for no reason.

    If neither Palmer nor Ericsson are on the grid next season, we'll be as close to not having a single donkey on the grid as we've been in years. I'm assuming that no one accepts a (rubber) Bank of Venezuela check from Pastor Maldonado.

    I actually liked Palmer in GP2. Not a huge talent, but he was kinda fun to watch. He wasn't F1 material though.

    I have no issue with Palmer but he is not up to F1 so I cannot blame Renault. I hope he doesn't get a Williams seat.

    Hopefully he goes and enjoys a good career elsewhere.
    Its not crashing it's drifting with style
