I've just seen that Porsche's Endurance Race star Brendon Hartley has been given the second Torro Rosso seat for next weeks F1 GP in America.

Do you think Kvyat will keep his seat for next year?

I really don't see that as a possibility personally. The only open question is as to who it is that will replace him... ?

I'd day that Webber would have been consulted on this decision as he was regarded well by RB owner. The kid can flat out peddle and being ex RB junior, he's always had it.
Kvyat will be joining Palmer on the airlines I feel. They haven't been able to curb the crazy Russian gene so he'll be cut adrift

Good question... I would like to see whomever doesn't get the Williams drive from the Robert Kubica / Paul Di Resta shootout take that seat but Red Bull seem stuck in their ways about taking talent only from their young driver program.... But will they opt for two rookies?!

With Honda engines in 2018, their only chance of getting drivers is with rookies. No experienced driver would want to drive for a team with a poor chassis and even poorer engine. Blood two rookies and hope Honda get it together for 2019.

True but in the case of Kubica and Di Resta it could be that drive or no drive at all.

It appears that the Red bull organisation are ready to cut the Russian loose with Hartley staying on for the rest of the season. Fantastic news for him if that's the case.
