Sainz to replace Palmer at Renault from Austin

Sainz to replace Palmer at Renault from Austin

"I'm going to remain positive: these three years here have been absolutely awesome - it's been an ideal preparation for me", he said.

I guess it's good Palmer never had any children with the Renault Formula One team, after all.

It follows the announcement that Jolyon Palmer will leave the Renault team after Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix, with Sainz being drafted in to partner Nico Hulkenberg for the remainder of the season.

Sainz had already signed a deal to race for Renault next season but the Spaniard is being released from Toro Rosso four races early as "circumstances have changed".

It will also open up a seat at Scuderia Toro Rosso for Daniil Kvyat, who has sat out the last two Grands Prix in favor of Pierre Gasly.

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!"

The British driver said that although he would have liked to have stayed with Renault 'till the end of the season, he respects the decision that it was time for him to go before the final races.

Carlos Sainz Jr. apologised to his Toro Rosso team for crashing out on the opening lap at the Japanese Grand Prix, bringing down the curtain on his spell with the outfit.

Carlos Sainz was hoping for a better outcome to his swan song ride with Toro Rosso than a retirement on the first lap of the Japanese GP.

"Since Renault's return to Formula 1, Jolyon has been highly dedicated in an evolving environment". "I've been with the team now for three years so it's a shame not to be going to Austin with them".

"They did an fantastic job and congratulations for that, it shows the commitment they have, and I really appreciate it".

"On my side, I will definitely do my very best in tomorrow's race - this would be the best possible send-off!" Across 36 F1 starts, Palmer has only twice finished in the points-paying positions.

Gasly and Kvyat are now likely to form Toro Rosso's 2018 driver line-up, although Pascal Wehrlein is considered an outside contender.
