Toro Rosso with Honda money? hmm, sounds like a good idea. Honda's engine is coming good with the new concept this year. So I think it should be a nice improvement into next year as well.

"Honda engine coming good though this year"?

I presume a freak wormhole opened up in the fabric of the space-time continuum and carried these words far far back in time from a future we can only imagine.

Doesn't look good for Kvyat's future. But a sensible decision by STR, I think.

I'm sure the marketing people at Martini would be quite interested in having a Russian driver in the Williams, the Russian drinks market is bloody huge!!!!......he could sell more drink than a Polish driver, and his experience is more relevant that Kubicas......Kvyat is still a decent driver, so he crashed off in the wet at Singapore, you cant hold that against him

Kyvat had his chance to redeem himself, but he's looked completely lost this season and hasn't exactly helped himself. Dunno where he will go now. Looking forward to seeing Gasly finally get the chance, a good day for the future of the sport

from the link, it doesnt sound like Kyvat is out for 2018 as Gasly is just set to replace him at one maybe two races this year.

iirc STR already picked up the option on Kyvat for 2018 so isnt this just more of a confirmation that the line up will be Kyvat and Gasly at STR for 2018?

Picking up the option on Kvyat and him being in a Torro Rosso in 2018 are very different things I'd have thought he'd be out on his arse and Honda will drop a driver into the second seat alongside Gasly. Unless of course Gasly is dreadful - you have to wonder if they're not that confident in him, if they're were surely they'd just put him in for next season and not faff about with anything this year? Has the Red Bull junior program run out of talent?

I do wonder whether an agreement was reached for Gasly to drive assuming that Sainz left immediately, but as he has stayed until the end of the season, they are having to "punt" Kyvat out of his seat to honour the agreement?

yep, its all Palmers fault!......but the 8 points he scored at singapore and jumped the team into 5th above HAAS was worth him staying......if they beat Williams he can leave with his head held high.....I dont yet rate Palmer, but perhaps he is a grower.......many drivers originally looked very average, only to later become champion after the penny dropped and they worked out what to do, Hakkinen was a fine example.

Idk how you think Hakkinen looked average to begin with. He looked a talent in that 91 Lotus and his performances in the 92 Lotus were even better

Niki Lauda European F2,

1972 5th

1st F1 race Austria 1971, 1972 five races.

Turned out alright I guess.

(Prior to F2, Austrian Formula Super Vee, prior I have no idea!)
