What Red Bull is risking with its driver bombshell - F1

  • Did Horner and Marko know all along as Albon replaces Gasly

Toro Rosso driver Alexander Albon of Thailand steers his vehicle during the second Formula One practice session at the Hockenheimring racetrack in Hockenheim, Germany, July 26, 2019.

The youngster had been driving for Red Bull's junior team Toro Rosso but a poor performance from Red Bull's second driver, Pierre Gasly, in the first half of the season has meant the Mr Albon has been given a call up to the top team.

The 23-year-old - born in England of a Thai mother - is promoted from Red Bull's sister team Toro Rosso whilst Frenchman Pierre Gasly will go in the opposite direction.

Gasly was recruited by Red Bull as a replacement for Renault-bound Daniel Ricciardo for this season but has scored only 63 points to Verstappen's 181.

"Red Bull are in the unique position of having four talented Formula One drivers under contract who can be rotated between the Team and Toro Rosso".

The next race takes place at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium on 1 September.

The Dutchman thinks that the performance of Honda so far has allowed Red Bull to pay attention to their own development more - something which was hard to do previous year with Renault.

A Tesla Inc Model 3 electric automobile recharges at a charging station beside a canal in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The accident took place at around 2100 Moscow time (1800 GMT).

In Gasly's last outing in Hungary - the final race before a mid-season break - he finished sixth and was lapped by Verstappen, who finished second behind championship leader Lewis Hamilton.

"We desperately need him realising more of the potential of the auto".

Albon has got himself noticed this season with strong performances.

Last month's German Grand Prix at Hockenheim was Albon's first wet F1 race and he now finds himself in a winning auto after just 12 grand prix starts.

Gasly performed well past year at Toro Rosso and moved up to Red Bull when Australian Daniel Ricciardo chose to move to Renault.

However, Kvyat's track record has been even better, with the young Russian outscoring his teammate by 11 points.
