Brendon Hartley Biography


Brendon Hartley Toro Rosso Mexico GP F1/2017

Brendon Hartley Toro Rosso Mexico GP F1/2017

In 2017 Red Bull wasn't happy anymore with the Renault V6 power unit that broke down very often lately. McLaren had enough of their Honda power unit nightmare, that took them down like a torpedo. The rule said for 2018 that an engine is only allowed to 3 teams, Red Bull had to think of a plan to switch engines with McLaren.

So they did Toro Rosso would get Honda engines in 2018 and McLaren would get Renault engines and to do Renault a favour, Carlos Sainz jr. was lent to the Renault factory team to replace under-performing Jolyon Palmer.

Brendon Hartley who was a former member of the Junior Red Bull team was asked to fill-up the empty seat to look if he could cope with the pressure and performance demand of Formula 1. He did well and could stay for 2018 and became team mates with Pierre Gasly.

His 2018 was a very tough one. He retired 7 times out of 21 races and has a to face a lot of engine penalties. Honda was developing their power unit rapidly to use it in the Red Bull of 2019. Hartley's power unti got replaced 8! times and he almost had to start last because of that. I also had a lot of bad luck and a very good teammate in Pierre Gasly. The New Zealand driver was out-qualified by 14/7.

Brandon did score 4 points and ended up as 19th in the dirvers championship. It wasn't enough for Helmut Marko, who promoted Gasly to Red Bull, while Hartley was replaced by rookie Alexander Albon for 2019 at Toro Rosso.
