“There’s always rumours this time of year, Monza being a hotbed of that,” Horner told Sky.
“I think the situation with Toro Rosso is pretty open so i think everything is being considered. He’s one of several drivers who are on the list.”
Red Bull has been forced to consider an unorthodox replacement for Gasly as it does not have any drivers in its Junior Team who will have enough FIA superlicence points at the end of the year to move up into Formula 1.
Kvyat made his F1 debut for Toro Rosso in 2014 and was promoted to Red Bull as Sebastian Vettel’s replacement the year after. However the team relegated him back to Toro Rosso two races into 2016, promoting Max Verstappen.
Kvyat remained at Toro Rosso for another year in 2017, but was dropped as they team brought Gasly and Hartley into the team for the final races. The 24-year-old is currently a simulator driver for Ferrari.
