the Renault power sources Honda have changed to Red Bull left in this season on hard in the barrel. So the drivers than the team leader is the winter time, praised the cooperation with the japanese manufacturer.
for Example, the garage of the adviser to the Helmut Marko is hinted that Max Verstappenilla has opportunities to fight this year, even the world championship. Verstappen yuan is widely regarded as Red bull's clear number one driver, while another car was lifted for this season to the garage of your academy, a French Pierre Gasly .
Gaslyn start Red Bull has not been easy. Already in the winter tests in the garage, lost a lot of the driving time of the French exit as a result of. Marko did at the time clear that Gasly are, in his opinion, verstappen's level. He later said that if Gasly will not achieve quickly enough good results, this threat to football terms, ”a place on the bench”. Red Bull is not before the dreaded to do the hard driver solutions.
– Pierre's performance will be closely monitored, because such F1, Marko said.
on This basis Gaslyn the first time driving the Red Bull driver couldn't have gone much now seen worse. 23-year-old French driver dropped out of the future already in the first qualifying section, and his starting spot for Sunday's race is only 17:p. The difference between the final shortlisted to proceed to the driver, Kim Räikköseen , missed 0,054 seconds.
Gasly was naturally very disappointed, but fortunately for him, Markokin understand that the situation wasn't just his fault. Gasly had a victim of circumstances.
Red Bull planned to run their both drivers in the first qualifying section only once. The team wanted to find out the first section through with a minimal amount of tire sets. Gasly had these bets after verstappen's above, but when he returned to the garage in accordance with the instructions to the depot, the dutchman scored after yet another, better bets, which was enough to finally graduate to a place.
Red bull's pit wall was underestimated how much the track conditions developed in the time trial section progresses, and thus Gasly fell into place place on the eighth place of the 17:th.
It was a stupid mistake we strategist our evening. We have to apologize Pierre, Marko said Motorsport.
Such comments are fresh statements familiar from the austrian extremely rare. Usually he'll tölväisee drivers, if tölväisyn place will be, but apologies often don't expect.
team manager Christian Horner fretted Gaslyn fate.
Hindsight is easy to say that we should have used another ring set, but at that stage it was not easy to assess what the next minutes would happen. This is frustrating for Pierre and the us, but I am sure that he will be able to drive on Sunday good competition.
