Jolyon Palmer is looking to bid farewell to Renault on a high note, but insists his last with the team won’t necessarily be his last in Formula 1.
Palmer announced on Saturday that the Japanese Grand Prix would be his last with the team as he makes way for Carlos Sainz.
While it was already known that the Spaniard would replace him in 2018, Renault were keen to get Sainz in the car early.
But in order for that to happen, Palmer had to be willing to reliquish his seat.
“I’m good,” he told Sky Sports on Sunday morning.
“I’m starting obviously near the back because of the penalty.
“A nothing to lose race.
“I will try to move forward, make something of it and enjoy the race.”
Asked about his future, the Brit insisted he’s not yet done with Formula 1.
“My last race for Renault but definitely not my last race in F1, we’ll see what the future holds.
“I hope to go out on a good moment.”
