The head of Renault I did not set an ultimatum to the Palmer
The head of Renault's Cyril abiteboul said that it was not Jolyon Palmer in a strict framework.Cyril abiteboul "it is True that we can't afford this situation. Jolyon needs to be able to contribute in the fight for points, but I don't doubt he can do it. So I did not include any ultimatum to him. We know that he can take this car and bring it in glasses. It's the only thing he needs to do.This is definitely a question of confidence. Jolyon has not lost its qualities as a pilot, which we all saw last year in GP2.We had reliability problems at the start of the season, he got a very fast teammate, so Palmer has fallen into a downward spiral. Now I want to protect him and his family. I'm not going to replace him in the middle of the season. This is a difficult time for him and for us, but we go through this together".
