Carlos Sainz will stay at Toro Rosso for next season the team has confirmed.
Ahead of this weekends home Grand Prix for Red Bull in Austria, the outfit has taken up the option that sees Sainz stay with them until the end of 2017.
With the possibility of Ferrari dropping Kimi Raikkonen for next year, it looked like Sainz might be on the teams radar. However, much like their quick promotion for Max Verstappen into the Red Bull senior team, it seems they have exercised an option that sees him committed to the team for the foreseeable future.
