Last quote by Jolyon Palmer on Nissan

It's a shame for me not to finish the season having been with the team a while, but I respect the decision and I wish the team all the best for the future and Carlos the best. We go in separate ways and I'll work on something else in the future. The stress levels have been huge this year, it's been a very tough season for many reasons. Each weekend coming in with question marks. I would have happily seen out the season and I think the team is in a good place. It's a shame but I'll move on, there's plenty of life outside of F1 out there and I'm about to find out what it is.feedback

My boss has told me they're not planning on putting Kubica in the car. He (Abiteboul) called me to tell me Robert is testing, which is fine. I can understand why. I lose a (test) day but I get a longer holiday and I come back refreshed for Spa.feedback

But for me, I get a longer holiday and I come back refreshed for Spa. It's good for Robert - I lose a day in the car but nothing changes. I'm just looking forward to having a second half of the season. I would rather have the day, but it is what it is really. It's not going to make a big difference. Last year it was helpful mid-season to have a test at Silverstone and it's mileage which would have been nice to catch up on.feedback

But, there were certainly a couple of good things from Silverstone. My qualifying pace was decent and I managed my second best run of the season. I drove with the new floor in FP1 and it was working nicely, meaning I'm happy to have it for Budapest. Nico showed the benefit of the floor across last weekend with his strong qualifying and race pace. It's exciting for the team as we looked competitive and ahead of our midfield rivals. That's all I hope for in Hungary.feedback

I have burnt the unlucky underpants, so they are now out of the way. I'm not superstitious, but you have to say this run of bad luck has to end. The big negative was obviously not being able to start the race. That was unbelievably frustrating, especially as it was my home Grand Prix and I had a lot of support. I couldn't believe it.feedback

I'm gutted. Second best qualifying of the year, starting just outside of the points, we had really good race pace this weekend as well. The car was working well. It was the race to have a great shot at getting those points but it's another problem. Nothing else to say really, just gutted. It was a hydraulic leak on the formation lap.feedback

We are kinda getting half of the running that we normally would because everything we do on the hard tyres was irrelevant and the medium are difficult and the softs is what counts for qualifying. [The mediums] are very hard and they are a very low-grip tyre. We need to use them in the race of course, but for low-fuel stuff, they are so far off the soft that you do not really learn anything.feedback

With difficulty... it is not going my way but it is a long season. It wasn't going my way this time last season as well. I actually felt good with the car today, I think the guys did a good job to change the chassis last night and we were in a good place with the set up. Compared to Nico, the few laps I have done, it has not been so bad. It is just... obviously very disappointing to put it in the wall like that. There are positives but a lot of negatives as well.feedback

I am confident [in Renault], it is just the way it has been. The one time there was a problem on his car he wasn't even driving it! That is how it goes. I am sure the luck will turn and like I said last year it was tough times and I dug in and finished the year with a very good second half. We are not even a quarter through the year so there are plenty of races to turn it around.feedback

I think I have a reasonable chance to be here ... I'm pretty confident of being on the grid next year.feedback

I think the reason the decision has been delayed is that it's not clear at the moment who is going to take the seat.feedback

As far as the other ones (team vacancies) go, we'll see what's on the table after that.feedback

I think me and Kevin have overall done a good job for the team and got on really well with the team and worked hard for it but obviously one of us is gone.feedback
