“He's really, really far away [von Verstappen], he's not at the level he should be, that's tough,” says Villeneuve, adding: “He's lucky he's still here, and Red Bull and Helmut Marko have been far more aggressive with other riders.” Gasly's only plus is that Red Bull does not currently have a suitable substitute in his hands.

Afterwards, Kwjat had at least made no mistakes, which was “good”. Nevertheless, he does not believe that the Russian should get another chance at Red Bull. He reminds that driving for a small team like Toro Rosso is “very different”. At Red Bull the pressure on Kwjat would be much greater – especially as it would be his second chance.

“Some riders are great on small teams but useless on big teams,” said Villeneuve and adds: “That happens, even with ten years of experience, which has been seen over and over again over the years.” He currently considers neither Gasly nor Kwjat good enough to insist on stumbling next to Red Bull.
