Behind the wheel of a slow, unpredictable and at times evil car, Jolyon Palmer has endured a difficult debut season in Formula One in 2016.

Renault's understandable focus on the future has almost made the team forget the present, with Palmer and team-mate Kevin Magnussen effectively weaponless, making up the numbers toward the rear of the field.

But the British driver will have the opportunity to prove his true worth in 2017, having been awarded a contract extension.

After recovering well from a shaky start to the season, Palmer will argue he is fully deserving of a new deal, but it would be slightly more accurate to suggest he secured Renault's second seat by default.

After missing out on their main targets, it was thought the race to partner new signing Nico Hulkenberg had come down to a straight fight between Magnussen and Esteban Ocon, who started 2016 as Renault's reserve driver before joining Manor.

Yet both drivers have left the team dangling, with Magnussen signing a contract to join Haas after running out of patience with Renault and Ocon close to replacing Hulkenberg at Force India.

Indeed, Palmer could be even considered a stop-gap signing, giving Renault time to assess their options before pursuing a high-profile, superstar driver for 2018.

And arguably the best driver of the lot could soon be available, with Jo Ramirez expressing his fear that Fernando Alonso could walk away from McLaren-Honda if the team's struggles continue under the new regulations in 2017.

Closing our latest roundup is four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel, who has refused to change his style despite being criticised by his Ferrari boss.
