Renault boss Cyril Abiteboul has said they are planning for “the worst” next season which would involve Carlos Sainz leaving the team.
Billed by Christian Horner as the driver most likely to replace Daniel Ricciardo should he leave, Carlos Sainz insists he’s not yet thinking about 2019.
Carlos Sainz concedes that he is playing catch-up to Nico Hulkenberg, who has “little tricks” that make him “very, very fast in qualifying”.
Despite bagging points in the opening two races of this season, Nico Hulkenberg says Renault head to China with “things to work on.”
Carlos Sainz has described his loan deal at Renault as a “strange situation” and that there was no way he could have prepared for it.
