Gasly out of USGP, will contest Super Formula final

Gasly out of USGP, will contest Super Formula final”

Gasly was initially handed Daniil Kvyat's F1 vehicle for two races, Malaysia and Japan, however, Carlos Sainz's early move to Renault means he'll be staying with the team for the remainder of this season.

Sainz is racing for Renault (PA:) next season and that switch has now been brought forward, with both teams announcing at Suzuka that he would be driving for the French outfit from Austin onwards.

That is, at least, for all the grands prix excluding Austin.

The Honda boss told Autosport last week: "We want him to race there but if there is anybody who can drive instead of Gasly in Austin, we're happy to have him in Super Formula".

The Frenchman has made two starts for Scuderia Toro Rosso but is second in the Super Formula championship standings and just a half point behind front-runner Hiroaki Ishiura.

A Toro Rosso spokeswoman was unable to clarify the situation on Thursday and did not know who would be driving in Austin.

With that in mind, Toro Rosso and Red Bull have lined up Buemi, who raced for Red Bull's junior team between 2009 and 2011, to step in if a deal for Hartley can not be agreed.

Le Mans victor Brendon Hartley also has enough points to qualify for a super license, with the motorsport.com website saying the New Zealander had become the leading contender.

If Hartley does race he will become New Zealand's first Formula One driver since Mike Thackwell in 1984. He is part of a trio including fellow Kiwi Earl Bamber and German Timo Bernhard that leads the World Endurance Championship but will be looking for another drive next year after Porsche's decision to withdraw at the season's end.
