Renault drivers still in dark over future

Renault’s two drivers are still in the dark over whether they will drive for the French works team in 2017.

“As far as I know there are still two seats for next year and I hear the names in the rumour mill, but it is the team’s decision what they want to do in the future,” British rookie Jolyon Palmer is quoted by the Times.

The Danish media, meanwhile, has been closely monitoring the situation, with BT newspaper reporting that Renault’s 2017 option on Kevin Magnussen will expire at midnight on Friday.

“It’s frustrating not knowing what I’m doing next year,” the 23-year-old admitted.

He did admit, however, that as from Saturday, he is contractually free to negotiate with other teams.

“I don’t actually have a manager,” said Magnussen. But BT reports that his sponsor, the billionaire Anders Holch Povlsen, has been attending recent races.

“I’m talking with a lot of people in the paddock,” Magnussen added, “but the only thing I can really do is give my best on the track.”
