Red Bull has announced that Alexander Albon will replace Pierre Gasly at the team from the Belgian Grand Prix onwards.
Gasly has struggled to get up to pace at the energy drink squad this season, which was his first in the Milton Keynes outfit, replacing Daniel Ricciardo who departed for Renault.
Max Verstappen has two Grand Prix, while Gasly has failed to find the speed to match or stay close to the Dutchman, and is just five points ahead of McLaren’s Carlos Sainz in the championship standings.
Unfortunately for Gasly he has been struggling with pace all year round – usually just under a second of the pace from his team mate.
His numbers also don’t look impressive – having scored only 63 points as compared to 181 from his team mate.
Gasly has also failed to secure a podium thus far while Max has won 2 races and earned another 3 podium finishes.
