    Reading rumours that Sainz will leave the red bull family after this race and move to Renault as soon as Hungary. With Palmer losing his seat (finally) and gasly getting the str seat. Big news if true.

    Hopefully true, Sainz is starting to stagnate at STR and Palmer is now talking the mick. If they wanted someone British why not Alex Lyn

    Apparently it's because the Sainz family started the Verstappen to Ferrari fake news to get the ball rolling but Red bull are not happy.

    And why not because carlos will be stuck otherwise. He would be better off creating his own future as he is a very good driver

    The TR pipeline is quite weak right now, Gasly is presumably next up, but his Super Formula season hasn't been stellar against his team-mate. Kvyat seems to stay on by default right now.

    Kubica has apparently tested in the RB sim. Sainz to Renault in return for releasing Kubica from any commitments he has there? I can dream.

    They've been really clever to get away with this, whilst other teams have been stopped. Other teams were directly warming their hydraulic fluid, whilst Mercedes just run the hydraulic lines close enough to their gearbox that the fluid heating up is a side effect of heating the gearbox, which is allowed under parc ferme.
