In the least surprising news of the year, Pierre Gasly has been confirmed as leaving Red Bull with immediate effect…
… to be replaced by highly impressive Toro Rosso rookie, Alexander Albon.
The Anglo-Thai racer, making his debut in Formula One this season following a strong 2018 campaign in Formula 2 where he finished third overall, will be drafted into the Red Bull team alongside Max Verstappen from the next race at Spa-Francorchamps onwards.
With Albon stepping up, Frenchman Pierre Gasly will return to his former Toro Rosso team as he continues to fight to keep his Grand Prix career alive following a disastrous start to the current season with the main team this year.
Albon has been confirmed at Red Bull for the remaining nine races of the current campaign, as the Austrian team look to evaluate who is best placed to partner Max Verstappen full-time next season.
