Rate the Grid is back, this time with now unemployed former Renault Sport F1 driver and second generation Grand Prix star Jolyon Palmer under the spotlight... Palmer was something of Formula One's invisible man during his year and a half as a factory Renault driver, never really seeming to feature in a Grand Prix unless it was recovering his car from tricky situations (or all too often the wall), and generally not doing enough to impress the powers that be when the all important decision to renew driver contracts came about towards the end of 2017. Having been comprehensively out performed by team mate Nico Hulkenberg during his 37 starts for Renault Sport F1, Palmer would find himself unceremoniously dumped from the French team in favour of Toro Rosso refugee Carlos Sainz Jr. prior to the US Grand Prix, potentially signalling the end of a professional Formula One career at just 26 years of age. Although Palmer never really shone in the sports top flight the driver does come with pedigree, son of former Grand Prix racer Dr. Jonathan Palmer and winner of the GP2 series in 2014, what happens now for the likeable British driver remains to be seen.
