Palmer plays down Renault pressure

Jolyon Palmer is facing speculation in Russia that he is in danger of being replaced at Renault.

Reports say the French works team is considering ousting the Briton, who finished dead last in China, in favour of French charger Esteban Ocon.

When asked on Thursday if he is under pressure, Palmer was quoted as responding to Russia's Championat: "No pressure.

"There is slight pressure on the team as a whole. The management understands the current situation we are in.

"If you talk about me, it is clear that I am a rookie and we are doing everything we can. The season is long and I am sure the car will be more competitive and we will be able to achieve better results," he added.
