Red Bull Content Pool/Getty Images

It has not been the best 18 months for Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kvyat. He has been demoted twice, reinstated (perhaps only temporarily) and now his career as a grand prix driver is under serious threat from New Zealander Brendon Hartley of sportscar fame. However, Hartley’s story and return to a Formula 1 cockpit after five years should not be a deterrent for the young Russian, but should inspire him to consider reinventing himself as a driver.

Renault Sport F1

One of Formula 1’s few current manufacturers was effectively left with a tough choice going into the 2016 season: quit the sport entirely, or buy out the fledgling Lotus team and attempt to revive the championship-winning outfit of a decade ago.

Questions to be asked from the F1 2017 Silly Season

McLaren Media

It’s all kicked off in Formula 1 rather early this year, hasn’t it? The F1 2017 Silly Season has not had any movers yet, but some massively talented drivers and some huge outfits will be making serious considerations regarding what next year will look like. As it stands, the only team with its line-up set is Red Bull. That leaves factory seats open at Renault, Ferrari and Mercedes, as well potentially at McLaren (with whatever power unit they are running).
