Gasly had to hand over all his Red Bull to Albon after half a season last year due to disappointing results. Gasly has since returned to Red Bull’s sister team, now called Alpha Tauri. “To be honest, I haven’t thought about it,” says Gasly. “I don’t want to put any energy into this. AlphaTauri is my only focus at the moment. ”

In the British Grand Prix, Gasly Albon managed to stay ahead and in the second race the Frenchman seemed faster, although his result was less with eleventh place. Yet the Frenchman does not want to see Albon as a target. “I focus on myself and get the most out of it for Alpha Tauri. It is going well now and we have been faster than Alex but that is not important and not my goal. Alex has been quick, in the past and I don’t know about him now. But I know too little about that. Marko is happy with the performance, he spends most of his time at Red Bull so I don’t see him very much, ”said Gasly.
