After completing the signing of Nico Hulkenberg from Force India, it seems Renault are close to finalising their driver lineup for the 2017 Formula One season.

The team had reportedly intended to partner Hulkenberg with Valtteri Bottas, but the Finn's failure to wriggle his way out of his Williams contract has left Renault with a straight choice between one of their current drivers and their former reserve driver.

So will Renault offer Kevin Magnussen a reprieve? Or will they sign Mercedes-backed youngster Esteban Ocon in order to have a French driver in a French car?

As Renault edge towards identifying a new team-mate for Hulkenberg, it appears Force India are close to finding a replacement for the German.

Ocon and Jolyon Palmer, Magnussen's current team-mate, are thought to be in contention to partner Sergio Perez, but Sauber driver Felipe Nasr—with the support of F1 ringmaster Bernie Ecclestone—is set to beat them both to the spare seat.

After months of speculation, Toro Rosso finally confirmed their lineup over the United States Grand Prix weekend, with Daniil Kvyat surviving the threat of Red Bull junior Pierre Gasly to keep his seat.

The decision has left Kvyat relieved after a troubled year, while Gasly is now wondering where to turn after being overlooked for a drive that seemed certain to be his at one stage

Closing our Monday roundup is the latest update on the future of McLaren chairman Ron Dennis, who may be replaced by the man he sacked almost three years ago.
