Renault replace Palmer with Sainz for Austin

Sainz crash and heavy rain delay practice sessions in Japan // Suzuka weekend off to a difficult start for all

He described it as a "sad way to end" his tenure at Toro Rosso and said it was a result of taking a risk to try and make up ground early in the race.

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

Therefore, Sainz is disputing in Japan his last race with Toro Rosso and debuts dressed in yellow in Austin (October 22), advancing agreement that was originally planned for next season.

Sainz crashed out of his final grand prix for Toro Rosso, after spinning into the barriers on the opening lap.

"When I'm heading back on the plane maybe it will sink in that I'm not driving for Renault again and maybe not in Formula 1 again".

"First of all I would like to thank Toro Rosso and Red Bull for allowing me the possibility of finishing this season with Renault Sport Racing", Sainz said.

"We look forward to beating him on track". About halfway through the session, however, Carlos Sainz crashed heavily in his Toro Rosso, ending with the auto sprawling across the track and bringing out the red flags. "I am looking forward to start working with them".

Japanese reporter died after 159 hours of overtime
Japanese advertising firm Dentsu has been fined for making employees work excessive overtime, local media reported Friday. Tokyo-based Dentsu said it "accepted the court's ruling, which marks the end of all legal proceedings for our company".

The Englishman is set to start 18th at Suzuka, one place ahead of Sainz, after both received a 20-place grid penalty for engine component changes.

Palmer managed only one point in all of 2016 when Renault had just taken over the failing Lotus team and were struggling with an uncompetitive vehicle.

And he has failed to out-qualify team-mate Nico Hulkenberg, the German making it 14-0 in qualifying on Saturday.

"The driver I am today, compared to the driver I was in 2015, is a more complete and better one, and this is thanks to Toro Rosso, who are a great group of professionals".

While his vehicle has been riddled with reliability issues, he has also made several costly driver errors and he has recorded just one points finish, at the Singapore GP. This would also seem to confirm Gasly for the remainder of the 2017 season with Toro Rosso.
