Re: Kvyat, Sainz and Palmer to swap seats from Austin onward

Have Red Bull officially abandoned their young driver programme? I wonder what is to become of the Toro Rosso team if that is the case? This season they had Gasly, Ticktum, Kari, Verhagen and Verschoor on their books. Gasly drops out because he has a Toro Rosso drive, Kari has been dropped official...
