Red Bull promote Alexander Albon to replace Pierre Gasly for rest of F1 season
- British-born Thai driver promoted from sister team Toro Rosso
- Pierre Gasly has scored only 63 points to Max Verstappen’s 181
Red Bull have promoted Alexander Albon to race alongside Max Verstappen for the remainder of the F1 season. The move means Pierre Gasly has returned to race for Red Bull’s sister team Toro Rosso, alongside Daniil Kvyat.
Albon, the runner-up in last year’s Formula 2 Championship, has impressed in his first season in F1. The 23-year-old British-born Thai driver has scored 16 points from 12 races, with his best result a sixth-placed finish in the rain-affected German Grand Prix.
