According to rumors from the paddock, Monaco Grand Prix could be the last race for Jolyon Palmer at Renault, if the British fail to meet the expectations of the team, reports F1i.
The beginning of the season-2017 was hard for Palmer, who in the first five Grands Prix consistently inferior to the speed mate Nico Hulkenberg and never, unlike the German, not finished in the points.
“It hurts when you remain in the first segment, and your team qualifies in the top ten. But I know what you’re capable machine, and will do everything to realize this potential, Palmer said before the race weekend in Monaco. I hope that the situation will change for the better. Just need to put it all together during the weekend”.
We can assume that the worst case scenario for Palmer place teammate Hulkenberg already in the Grand Prix of Canada is a reserve Renault driver Sergey Sirotkin. At least in the days of Grand Prix of Russia, the head of Renault Sport’s Cyril Abitbul gave to understand that in the interests of the French team to give the Russians a place of combat pilot in the Formula 1.
