Pierre Gasly, who had to leave the Red Bull team after half this season, revealed that he only made the news hours before Red Bull officially confirmed that the Frenchman would be replaced by Alexander Albon in the offseason.
Gasly will again sit at the wheel of the Toro Rosso car at the Belgian GP race, and the young French racer was greatly surprised by the decision of the Red Bull leadership.
“I have to admit that this decision shocked me a little, as I did not expect it. Even after the race for Hungary, Red Bull was assured that there would be no change in the race lineup until the end of the season. Helmut Marko gave me the news just hours before the matter was published by the media. I am disappointed, but now the decision can no longer be changed and I am fully focused on racing at Toro Ross. ”
