Red Bull Drops Gasly In Shocking Move, Calls Up Alex Albon

Red Bull to use next nine races to decide who will partner Max in 2020

Aston Martin Red Bull Racing (RBR) announced Monday that Formula One rookie Alex Albon will replace team driver Pierre Gasly beginning with the upcoming Belgian Grand Prix on September 1.

As fate would have it, Kvyat has more points up its belt so far in 2019 but Red Bull Racing made a decision to promote the less experienced driver. "The team will use the next nine races to evaluate Alex's performance in order to make an informed decision as to who will drive alongside Max in 2020".

Albon's Toro Rosso teammate, Kvyat, had been tipped as the more logical choice to replace Gasly as he has more experience and drove for the senior Red Bull team in 2015 and early 2016.

Albon's promotion and Gasly's return to Roro Rosso follows a disappointing first half of the season for the Frenchman marked by his struggles and inability to perform on the same level as teammate Max Verstappen.

Near the end of the clip, the two screens folded to show the outer contours of a smartphone and a date and time is displayed. It has a dual rear camera setup accompanied with an LED flash, aligned horizontally, like the one we have seen in G8 ThinQ.

In these 12 races, the 23-year-old Thai-British driver recorded five top 10 finishes, including a career-high sixth place finish in the dramatic German Grand Prix. He also hasn't amassed any podium finishes, despite racing in a vehicle that has already taken Verstappen to two race wins and another top 3 finishes. He has scored 81 points in the last four races alone.

But another subdued performance by Gasly in Hungary - where the 23-year-old was lapped by Verstappen - likely left Marko convinced that a change was in order.

In some big news coming in, Red Bull Racing have confirmed that Alexander Albon will partner Max Verstappen with immediate effect in Formula One (F1). Gasly has also impressed at Toro Rosso in 2018, and in hindsight, driving for RBR is a bit more demanding in every aspect than making ends meet for the B-team from Faenza, Italy.

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