Toro Rosso has confirmed that it will be Brendon Hartley and Pierre Gasly in the car for the Mexican Grand Prix. There was confusion amongst the F1 paddock over who will step down once Gasly returned from his duties in the Super Formula finale in Japan, but it is now clear that Hartley will be the one to step in the car and not Daniil Kvyat.
The news surely comes as a crushing blow for Kvyat who despite scoring points on his return to the team in Austin has been dropped for the third time in 18 months by Red Bull, in what is surely the end of his F1 career for the time being. However equally Hartley will be certain to grab his opportunity to impress the team with both hands.
