Jolyon Palmer column: ‘Pierre Gasly revival giving Red Bull headaches’

Pierre Gasly’s stirring recovery drive to eighth place at the Belgian Grand Prix was confirmation of the Frenchman’s renaissance in Formula 1. Albon, meanwhile, arrived at Red Bull and made a very accomplished debut. He achieved with Toro Rosso what he could never do with Red Bull – get on the podium. Red Bull are very capable of making great strategies work for their drivers. But right now Red Bull’s gambles seem to be failing for Albon and are only making his job even harder. Albon is still young and has time to improve, and Red Bull are still backing him and hoping he will get there. With the knee-jerk way Red Bull have been with regards to their drivers in recent years, you have to wonder what is left if Albon can’t raise his game.
