    Some breaking Formula 1 news:

    Max Verstappen will race in Formula 1 at the age of 17 when he joins the Toro Rosso team next year, the Red Bull-owned squad announced on Monday.

    The Dutchman, currently competing in the Formula 3 European Championship, will join Russian Daniil Kvyat, replacing Frenchman Jean-Eric Vergne.

    Verstappen, the son of former grand prix driver Jos, had joined the Red Bull F1 junior programme just last week.

    He has won eight F3 races in his maiden season of car racing, having competed in karting until last year.

    As revealed by AUTOSPORT earlier this month, he had been linked with the Mercedes F1 junior programme as well.

    Verstappen will become the youngest ever driver to be on the F1 grid when he races in next year's Australian Grand Prix.

    The previous record holder was Jaime Alguersuari, who made his GP debut at 19 years and 125 days of age, also with Toro Rosso.

    "Ever since I was seven years old, Formula 1 has been my career goal, so this opportunity is truly a dream come true," said Verstappen.

    His team-mate Kvyat made his debut this year at the age of 19.

    "We are happy to welcome Max into the Toro Rosso family," said team boss Franz Tost.

    "It's great to see how the Red Bull Junior Programme continues to find talented young drivers and gives them the opportunity to come into Formula 1.

    "We consider Max to be as one of the most skilled young drivers of the new generation and we believe he has the necessary maturity and mental strength to take on this challenge successfully."

    The news means Vergne's future in Formula 1 will depend on finding a drive elsewhere.

    "I would also like to thank Jean-Eric Vergne for all his hard work," added Tost.

    "He has produced strong performances, but unfortunately he was also hindered by some reliability problems, especially in the first half of the current season.

    "We hope that we have resolved these problems and that he will be able to end the second half of this season on a high note and thereby show that he still deserves another opportunity in Formula 1."
    Looks like one to keep an eye on for the future!

    I know they if you're good enough your old enough but I don't know.

    What's the point in the feeder series if drivers keep bypassing it.

    I guess Red Bull must have seen enough to grant him an F1 drive straight away, but I think we shall see a young boy trying too hard in the first couple of races and taking people out!

    too young, too inexperienced. a driver of that age with such limited racing experience being given access to a missile on wheels is disaster waiting to happen.

    the FIA should be stepping in and taking decisions like this away from the teams by setting a reasonable mandatory minimum age requirement for obtaining a superlicence.

    they should also make it mandatory that all drivers entering F1 should have adequate experience in GP2 or an equivalent series beforehand.
    Don't waste your words I don't need anything from you.

    I couldn't ever bring myself to hate you as I'd like.

    Kobayashi dropped before the Spa GP. Good for him, he was too good for Caterham anyway. Idiots.


    http://www.crash.net/f1/news/207790/...-caterham.html

    Lotterer has had a successful career but it's the way they've got rid of Kamui that annoys me as I've always really liked him and was excited to see him back this season even if it meant in a back runner.

    It's a shame but that's the way it is going, money over talent, more for the small teams than others but I guess they need it to compete in F1!

    pay drivers have always been a part of F1. sometimes for certain teams, they are a necessity.

    that's just the nature of the sport.
