There is no "will" until he qualifies for a superlicence.

For anyone who knows of two or more people called Dan,

Awww, ya spoiled my fun :-)

It's also only a rumour which I hope is wrong. I'll be disappointed if the Kiwi does not get a full swipe at F1. F1 is a bloody tough sport.

Rumours don't worry about details. But he'd almost certainly get the license.

beers,

Sad if true, and if he doesn't get another ride.

Apart from GAS possibly being better at this point, he never had quite
the bad mechanical luck that HAR has had. Not to mention the crap car....

Really? He's a known quantity, was in the RBR fold and is legendary for his
mechanical sympathy and communication skills with mechanics. Not to mention
being a 2 x WDC in WEC.and a Le Mans winner. Toro Rosso have made no secret
that this year was largely about evaluating and improving the Honda PU ready
for the main team using it next year. They have said they'd rather take
extra PUs and penalties this year to speed up the development cycle at Honda
than have RBR take the pain next year. Hartleys background in endurance
racing makes him ideal for this role.

It eventuated that Gasly wasn't so good at giving useful feedback to the
team so they basically ended up giving him the optimum set up and best
chance to race at each Grand Prix. Hartley however with his excellent
communication with the team was used more as an in-season test driver. He's
taken more penalties (and parts) than Gasly to evaluate them. Not only will
this hugely benefit RBR next year but Gasly has also had his 2018 results
(and hence his career) improved by the work that Hartley hs been doing.

Essentially Hartley hasn't been able to just get in the car with an optimal
set up and race for immediate results as Gasly has been allowed to do.
However he is quite capable of a lot better results than he's been getting
if he were just there to race. I'm not saying he's F1 WDC material and
possibly one of the greats, just that his 2018 results need to be considered
in light of his primary job with STR / Honda.

You're welcome. A lot of people don't realise that Hartley was employed to
do a job - and that job wasn't gathering points for STR. I'd love to see him
rewarded with a chance to just race the car for a season but I think it's
unlikely to happen. I guess the money and the fact that he can say he drove
in F1 will have to satisfy him.

I doubt he'll ever end up in the senior team, his temperament is more suited
to endurance racing rather than Formula 1. By that I mean he's more of a
team player and less of a ... self centred person than a driver needs to be
to race for the Red Bull A team.

Agreed, I wasn't thinking of a race seat at RBR. More the development/test driver role. Would they have him and would he take the job even if only to stay visible to the rest of the circus?

Ok. It's hard to know his motivation. I know a bit about because I'm in New
Zealand and the media here sometimes carry stories and interviews but I
don't know him personally. ;)

That said I think he'd rather race than take a testing-only role. He's still
in his 20s, maybe a bit too young to give up on the dream. Before Marko
asked him to drive for STR he had a seat in Indycars lined up for 2018 and
I'd expect that going to that series might still be an option. With the
attrition that often happens in Indycars (and some longer races) I'd think
that his endurance car experience would be better suited there than in F1.

Sadly there is a rumour around that Dan will replace Brendon Hartley at Torro Rosso.
There is no "will" until he qualifies for a superlicence.
For anyone who knows of two or more people called Dan,
Dan Tiktum

It's be good to see Tiktum out of Marcus Armstrongs way. So far this year
he's taken Marcus out of 3 races. That said I'd like to see Brendon get a
fair shake of the stick. It seems Toro Rosso is using him as a sort of
in-season tester - likely due to his age and endurance car background.

Given how experienced he is, I've not really seen any flashes of brilliance
by Hartley. He's had bucket loads of bad luck of course, but he really
isn't setting the world alight - a shame as he seems a nice guy, but he's
not showing that he's an overlooked talent finally getting his chance.

I don't think he's a *great* driver either - rather a very good one who's
spent a long time endurance racing and is having trouble shaking the 'don't
take any risks' philisophy that goes with that type of racing. Coupled with
a chunk of bad luck.

He actually used to be quite Verstappen-esque and it took quite a few years
for him to stop trying to win on the first lap.

Kvyat was a much better driver than Hartley.

Really? I didn't know Kvyat had acieved (much) more than a win at Le mans
and 2 x WEC champion.

You see how pointless short statements like that are?

Surely we've hardly had a chance to evaluate that yet.
