With Sainz's transition, Daniil Kvyat in Torino Rosso will be back on the US GP and Pierre Gasly will be in F1 instead of the Super Formula race.

Palmer's 2018 season was not expected to close after the Sainz deal.

The result on the Singapore GP is Palmer's sophisticated, but slightly brilliant. He chose his way with a final decision.
