No Toro Rosso seat for shocked Gasly

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

GP2 ti­tle con­tender and Red Bull ju­nior driver Pierre Gasly says he does not un­der­stand why he was not se­lected for a Toro Rosso seat in F1 next year.

It was con­firmed at Austin that Daniil Kvyat would re­main with Toro Rosso in 2017, leav­ing Gasly look­ing at other op­tions if he wants to se­cure a seat next sea­son.

“I didn’t ac­tu­ally un­der­stand their de­ci­sion and I didn’t get any rea­sons as well,” he said. “It was kind of look­ing good for me, talk­ing about it with [Red Bull mo­tor­sport ad­vi­sor] Hel­mut [Marko] and try­ing to make it.

“I’m al­ready look­ing at the fu­ture. Right now, it’s quite wide open still in terms of op­tions – you still have many seats left in For­mula 1.”
