Predictable. The Red Bull Junior Team now has Carlos Sainz Jr, Pierre Gasley, Alex Lynn and Verstappen himself as a part of the programme, and you can add Da Costa to that as well as test driver for RB. It's a competitive cluster of drivers, it will be interesting to see where Verstappen ranks in the order for a drive at Toro Rosso should one become free. Talent is on his side, but age isn't. Putting a 17 year old in a car from any teams perspective is a supreme risk.

He won't be in a Toro Rosso for a while yet, Kvyat is going nowhere and Sainz will replace Vergne.

I can see Sainz possibly getting a drive next year in the place of Vergne, and I'd probably expect Lynn to have another year in GP3, or maybe even go to FR3.5. For Verstappen, maybe GP3 is good for him?

It's not often you say 'age is not on his side' and not be north of 30. This kid's gonna be big.

Anyway, driver salaries.
