Fuck. They were so close.
You have to feel for Gasly. Achieves his goal of driving for RB at the start of the season quicker than anyone could have imagined. Everything is looking up. He’s spoken about as a driver with a lot of potential.
Then halfway through the season, within a couple of weeks, he’s lost that and is told in a brutal Red Bull fashion the morning they announce it. So is fighting for his F1 future next year now. His social media is full of people making memes, jokes, and calling him shit – then his childhood best friend dies.
That’s enough to really fuck with someone.
