However, there has been no official word regarding the appointment of James Key, and the driver Daniel Ricciardo also failed to suppress the speculation. This is the second season at Toro Rosso for Daniel Ricciardo and he has said that he is unsure about his future with his current team. The reliability issues and pace problems have meant that the team has been able to only achieve a ninth place finish.

“In Hockenheim there was a bit of discussion and Giorgio was absent. Whether it’s something that will get resolved over the break. Maybe it came at a good time and some time off and everyone can rethink. Maybe it will be good and, come to Spa, maybe everything will be normal again – or there could be some changes. Unless we were getting some podiums and doing something extraordinary, I never saw that happening next year,” said Daniel Ricciardo ahead of the Belgian Grand Prix that will take place on 2 September.
