Talks between Toro Rosso and Honda are “progressing”; that’s according to reports in the British media.
Formula One’s managing director for motorsports Ross Brawn has said performance gaps need to be “narrowed” in order to stop the sport becoming “unsustainable”.
Formula 2 points leader Charles Leclerc marked his first time in the 2017 Ferrari car by topping the timesheets on the first day of the Hungary test.
Fernando Alonso set the fastest lap on his way to P6 as McLaren-Honda and Force India secure double-points finishes.
Daniil Kvyat is tip-toeing on very thin ice after been given a three-place grid penalty and a penalty point for holding up Lance Stroll in qualifying at Hungary.
Nico Hulkenberg has a five-place grid drop, both McLaren-Hondas inside the top 10 and more trouble for Daniil Kvyat.
There were top ten times in practice at the Hungaroring for Nico Hulkenberg, Fernando Alonso, Carlos Sainz and Stoffel Vandoorne.
Daniil Kvyat has said he will not let his mounting tally of penalty points affect his approach for the rest of the season.
The 2018 cars are due to carry a little more bulk, with the minimum weight rising 5kg to 733kg following the introduction of the ‘Halo’ cockpit safety device.
