Carlos Sainz signs with Renault, McLaren to acquire Renault engines

There are also rumors of McLaren developing its own power unit.

McLaren and Honda haven't had a particularly fruitful partnership since they joined hands in 2015.

If this did happen, Red Bull junior driver Pierre Gasly - now racing in the Super Formula championship in Japan - would step up into the vacant Toro Rosso seat.

Valverde delighted to be on Messi's side
Madrid had opened with a convincing 3-0 win at Deportivo La Coruna but then was held to a 2-2 draw by Valencia at the Bernabeu. Dembele's inclusion at the expense of Gerard Deulofeu is Valverde's only change for his first European test as Barca boss.

Sainz's impending arrival has reportedly made up Robert Kubica's mind about his chances of driving for Renault, the Pole asking for his release from his short-term contract in order to explore opportunities with other teams.

Honda will secure its future in F1 after a disastrous three years with McLaren by moving to supply Toro Rosso, where with less pressure for immediate results it could see the Japanese manufacturer potentially attract Red Bull if its turnaround in fortunes is impressive enough to produce a competitive power unit. Honda would then power Toro Rosso in exchange for McLaren gearboxes to accelerate the learning curve.

Renault, meanwhile, will receive a highly-rated replacement for Palmer, with the Briton yet to score a point for Renault as it chases fifth-placed Williams in the constructors' championship.

California officials make clear: The state has Dreamers' backs
President Trump has chose to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals ( DACA ) program - with a six month delay. DACA recipients will gradually lose their protection and become vulnerable to deportation as their permits expire.

"I think once the main domino falls, everything else will fall into place", the McLaren chief explained at the Italian GP. Dissatisfied by the lack of improvement from Palmer, Renault is rumored to be considering introducing Sainz for the Malaysian Grand Prix toward the end of September.

"Yeah, I know there are few things going on at the moment", said Gasly. "Never mentioned Malaysia. [Media] just twisting my words".

FPL says power restoration will be slow, but steady
Power should be back on throughout South Florida by the end of the weekend, Florida Power & Light promised Tuesday morning. In the three-county region, power has returned to about 73,000 customers in the past 24 hours, according to FPL's data.
