While Gasly has been promoted to Red Bull’s senior team for next season, Hartley is at risk of being forced out of F1.  The New Zealander has repeatedly said he has a contract for next season but his team has already re-signed Daniil Kvyat for 2019 and is negotiating with the Nissan e.dams Formula E team to release Alexander Albon to take the other Toro Rosso seat.  Hartley started last ...

Toro Rosso introduced a new front wing as part of an upgraded aero package that also included a revised floor.  However, with Friday’s running limited and taking place in wet conditions – and the team having just the one package in the US – Gasly used the old spec in qualifying and will need to keep that for Sunday’s race.  He explained: “In the end we took it off after FP3, so I ...

The possibility of the highly-rated Esteban Ocon being left without an F1 drive in 2019 has prompted concerns that politics and money are now bigger factors for teams than out-and-out speed.
