Daniil Kvyat is still waiting to hear if his F1 future will remain at Toro Rosso in 2018. The Russian driver looks set to retain his seat after it was announced that teammate Carlos Sainz would be heading off to Renault next season.

With Pierre Gasly all but certain to take up Sainz's seat, Red Bull don't appear to have a new, strong contender to fit into the junior team just yet. With Toro Rosso also announcing that it will be supplied by Honda in 2018, the team admitted it will listen to any suggestions the Japanese manufacturer has over a line-up.

Speaking in Singapore, Kvyat stated that he was still waiting on word surrounding his future: "I'm waiting for them to have the time to think about me. Today is not the time as the main thing is the racing this weekend, but soon we will have time to clarify the situation and get answers."

"Our team has constantly changed engines in the last three years," he continued, "but it's great that we now have clear plans for the future and will be able to build strong relationships with a supplier. We will be the only team with Honda engines, so it's a fantastic opportunity to build a solid foundation."
