Jolyon Palmer will take no part in qualifying for the Mexican Grand Prix after damaging his chassis during final Formula 1 practice at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.

Palmer damaged the underbody of his chassis by running over the curb during FP3, leaving Renault with a sizeable repair job to complete before qualifying.

The Briton confirmed on Twitter before the session that he would not be heading out in qualifying, as well as admitting his frustration after running well in final practice before sustaining the damage.
