Renault almost ready to name driver

Renault is almost ready to make its decision about the identity of Nico Hulkenberg's teammate for 2017.

Kevin Magnussen and Kevin Magnussen are waiting impatiently to see if they will be retained by the works team, with candidates including Esteban Ocon, Felipe Nasr and others linked with the seat.

"The talks are moving slowly," team boss Frederic Vasseur told the French broadcaster Canal Plus.

"I guess we will make a decision before the Brazilian grand prix."

Especially regarding Dane Magnussen, there have been conflicting stories recently suggesting he was re-signed by Renault, and also offered a 2017 seat by Haas.

"Do not pay attention to the rumours," Vasseur insisted. "It's a trick of the journalists."
