Renault replace Palmer with Sainz for Austin

  • Carlos Sainz CRASHES during Japanese Grand Prix practice and faces grid penalty

Sainz was due to join from Toro Rosso at the end of the season but Renault said in a statement that the team and Palmer had now agreed to end their relationship by mutual agreement after Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix.

"It's been a bit of a unusual weekend knowing it's the last with the team after three years, shame not going to Austin", Palmer, who finished 12th at Suzuka, told Sky Sports.

"It's been a odd weekend knowing that this was going to be the last one with the team", Palmer said.

The Spaniard, who moves on to Renault for the US Grand Prix in Austin in two weeks, failed to make it past Turn 6 following an ill-inspired attempt to improve his laggard position at the back of the field.

Renault chief Abiteboul said that bringing in Sainz four races early would assist the team in getting a "jump start" on its 2018 preparations. Toro Rosso is made up of a fantastic group of people and I wish them only the best for the future.

Palmer's exit means a return to Toro Rosso for Russian Daniil Kvyat, who was recently axed in favour of French rookie Pierre Gasly.




"More specifically, I really want to thank all my engineers and mechanics for their support and tremendous work throughout these years".

"On my side, I will definitely do my very best in tomorrow's race".

Toro Rosso boss Franz Tost thanked Sainz for his three years at the Red Bull junior team and quipped: "We look forward to beating him on track!" Palmer does not have a ride lined up in Formula One for the next season yet, though he is rumored to be considering a move to IndyCar in the next year.

"We go in separate ways and I'll work on something else in the future".

This certainly does put more pressure on Carlos Sainz Jr.to perform in better equipment.

Gasly and Kvyat are now likely to form Toro Rosso's 2018 driver line-up, although Pascal Wehrlein is considered an outside contender. Therefore, on behalf of everyone at Toro Rosso, I wish him all the very best with his new team.
