Has Gascoyne gone from Renault?

Our spies in England tell us that Mike Gascoyne is no longer to be found working at Renault F1 UK and is now on gardening leave prior to joining Toyota Motorsport. If the deal follows the usual pattern this will mean that Gascoyne can start working for Toyota in six months from now. Neither team is likely to confirm the news as Renault will not wish to highlight that it has lost its technical director and Toyota will not want to be linked to the deal until Gascoyne officially begins work in Cologne.
