Albon replaces Gasly at Red Bull

Albon to replace Gasly at Red Bull:

It's not surprising given Gasly's perfomances, and that Red Bull haved improved their pace relative to the top teams and are now competitive enough to be fighting for second in the constructors (with two drivers getting decent points, obviously).

Well done to Albon, he's been great all season, particularly Hockenheim (6th place finish, the first time he'd ever driven an F1 car in wet conditions!), and China (10th place finish after starting from the pit lane). Good luck to him.

Can't imagine that Kvyat is all that impressed given his podium at Hockenheim.

yeah I think it's a good move by Red Bull (prompted by DC). Gasly has speed, but just wasn't ready to compete with Max. By contrast I think Albon is quite looking forward to competing with Max! :ph34r: :thumbs: sound like it could make for good inter-team racing, and also Red Bull getting in the mix as a whole team and being able to strategically affect the races :thumbs:

Has Honda made some miraculous jump in performance and reliability that Im unaware of that a top team like Red Bull will risk having it in the back of its car over the tried and tested Renault?

well Max seems to be doing well this year, P3 in the drivers championship. renault are a little further behind as are all the other cars with that PU. McLaren seem to be the only outfit to be able to get close to the top with it
