Oliver Rowland considers himself “second favourite” for a Renault chair after surrender that Robert Kubica is forward of him in queue.
A solid tide of drivers have all been related with being Jolyon Palmer’s deputy during Renault as his miserable deteriorate continues, and Rowland, now second in a F2 Championship, is among them.
Asked where he places himself in a picture, a Brit gave an honest comment of his chances.
“Robert was an implausible motorist behind in his day. He’s been injured, he’s come back, he’s got some restrictions with his arm – we only have to see how that affects him and what opening he brings with that,” Rowland told Channel 4.
“Robert comes with a lot of support and everybody would like to see him behind in Formula 1 that is because it’s a small bit formidable for me pulling that chair as good when he’s in a frame.
“As for a other two, Nicholas is my teammate in F2, so there is a approach comparison there. If he was to kick me afterwards he should get a chair in F1 and if it’s a other approach turn you’d like to consider that we would.
“Sirotkin did GP2 final year and finished third though I’d like to consider that I’m doing a somewhat improved job. We were also teammates in 2014 in World Series by Renault and we kick him then.
“I see myself as not entrance with a many subsidy in a universe though second favourite behind Robert from that side of things. we honour him from what he did before and it would be good to see him there if we wasn’t fighting for a seat.”
