'All open' on Daniil Kvyat's Toro Rosso future - Franz Tost

'All open' on Daniil Kvyat's Toro Rosso future - Franz Tost”

The team said that the decision to replace Kvyat was taken for a "variety of reasons, some of them due to technical problems, but others being mistakes of his own making" that did not allow him to show "his true potential so far this year".

Toro Rosso said that he would now have to prove himself in F1, starting in Malaysia, adding that Daniil "still remains part of the Red Bull Family". "Then we will see for 2019". "It's not decided yet".

"He's done a lot of testing with Red Bull, he knows the systems of the auto, he knows how to give feedback to the engineers", added Sainz.

"I assume that we will get together at the end of October to decide about our team (for 2018)", he said.

"Of course I feel sorry for him, he is a really good driver and talented".

The original driver announcement said Kvyat was being rested for "the next races", suggesting Gasly might remain in the vehicle for next weekend's Japanese Grand Prix before returning to Super Formula for the title finale - which clashes with the U.S. Grand Prix in Austin, where Kvyat seems likely to return.

"At the moment I don't know how many races I will do in F1, there is nothing confirmed", said Gasly. "It looks like that's going to happen". It's something I am pretty pleased about. It is for this seat that Gasly is being considered. I was super happy but at the same time I was focusing on the work with the team, trying to be as competitive and professional as possible from the very start.

"I travelled from Tokyo on Monday to Malaysia, and when I got here I received a text saying that I might be driving this weekend", the 21-year-old Gasly told reporters on Thursday. "The result, we will see on Sunday".

Ferrari entered Saturday's qualifying running as the favorite for pole following a strong showing in practice, only for an engine issue to sideline Sebastian Vettel from the session entirely.

The Malaysian Grand Prix is live on NBCSN and the NBC Sports app from 2am on Sunday. The race begins at 8am on Sunday, October 1.
