Carlos Sainz could be let go by Renault if Red Bull does not quickly sign up its drivers for 2019.

He is first in line to be called up by Red Bull should Daniel Ricciardo not renew his contract for 2019.

"We're not going to wait forever for Ricciardo and Red Bull to decide.

It is believed Esteban Ocon, a Mercedes driver who currently races for Force India, is one of those options.
