QPR have 11 games remaining to save themselves from the drop, with the odds on their survival prospects lengthening.
But they have a run of fixtures approaching against teams also battling away near the foot of the table, and Fernandes refuses to accept relegation as an inevitability.
Fernandes wrote tonight on Twitter: "I am optimistic as ever. I'm still smiling. Its the next 8 games. Lots of good things."
He added: "Good chat with Harry on the future come what may. We know what we have to do. Many points to play for."
Asked by a supporter whether Redknapp would also stay, whatever happens to the team at the end of the campaign, Fernandes replied: "I'm sure he will."
