Nelson Piquet jr.ING Renault Managing Director, Flavio Briatore, has backed once again young rookie Nelson Piquet jr. following a disappointing performance at the Monaco Grand Prix last Sunday. The Brazilian’s future at the wheel of a Renault R28 is currently in serious doubt. “Nelsinho definitely has talent,” the Italian told Sportnet. “He is a part of the team and we need him. I have no doubts about that,” he added.

Despite Briatore’s backing, it has been rumored this week that Piquet would have no more than three Grand Prix to improve or else, after the British Grand Prix, he could be replaced by Takuma Sato, Anthony Davidson or even GP2′s Romain Grosjean.
