It is known that both Hartley and Gasly are Toro Rosso’s backup plans this season. They replaced the official pair of drivers, Carlos Sainz (transferred to Renault) and Daniil Kyvat (early termination of contract).
“We are really pleased to confirm Pierre and Brendon will be the drivers for the 2018 season. In the final races of this season, they have proven themselves ready for Formula 1. They get to know the car very well. Fast, perform very well and always ready to take on challenges. We all know that not all drivers can adapt quickly to F1. Therefore, we look forward to their full season,” said Toro Rosso’s representative.
In this season, in addition to competing in F1, Pierre Gasly mainly competes in the Super Formula tournament in Japan. Due to the last race being canceled due to weather, he only placed 2nd overall.
And Brendon Hartley won the World Endurance Championship and won Le Mans 24h this year.
