And finally Torro Rosso have announced their replacement driver for Jean-Eric Vergne - 20-year-old Spaniard Carlos Sainz Jr, son of rally legend Carlos Sainz Sr. 16-year-old Max Verstappen has already grabbed one seat with Red Bull's feeder team, and with both Vergne gone and Daniil Kvyat taking Sebastian Vettel's place, the youngster has been given a spot.
Toro Rosso team principal Franz Tost said: "I have watched Carlos progress through the junior categories, always improving as he moved higher up the ladder, culminating in a well-deserved win in this year's World Series.
"However, I also remember the day's testing he did with us at Silverstone in 2013 in the STR8. He really surprised me and his engineers that day, with his mature approach and his speed."
