Friday began just as Thursday did with a 6am alarm call, Surprisingly though the short drive from my home to the circuit was a lot quieter than the previous day’s journey, I would like to think this theme continues but somehow I don’t think it will!
After being strongly linked with a potential switch to Ferrari as a replacement for Kimi Raikkonen, Red Bull has fended off any interest by taking up the option on Sainz’s contract to remain with Toro Rosso for 2017.
The Toro Rosso line-up was changed earlier this season as Max Verstappen moved to Red Bull, swapping place with Daniil Kvyat, but while Sainz missed out on a promotion at that point, he has impressed in the races since and Tost confirmed the Spaniard is set to stay for a third season at Toro Rosso.
Renault has struggled to develop a competitive V6 turbo since the new formula was adopted two year ago, but has made strides this year, with Max Verstappen and Red Bull winning in Spain last month with the TAG Heuer badged unit, while Daniel Ricciardo could well have won in Monaco last weekend too, if not for a pit stop blunder.
