    Def not. Red Bull and that idiot Horner have had their chance with Gasly. That's how I would see it if I was him and that is irrespective of any potential gain from it. He is relaxed, happy and driving the wheels off that Alfa Tauri - just as good as Albon. I would focus on my own career going forward. He has a long road ahead, so stick where he is for 2021 and see what seats come up for 2022 - but def not back to Red Bull.

    The worst thing Gasly could do, is go back under the wing of Christian Horner. He's a bully, and Albon won't recover because of this either.

As someone reminded me on another chatboard, Albon does not get lapped every other race by Max.But guess who did?.Well, at least Alex should get a rest from the gossipmongers this weekend...I mean that Have Perez and Vettel to gossip about, huh?

    You guys are creating a huge amount of pressure for Alex. Helmut admitted a few weeks ago that Alex has a second class car, he doesn’t have the latest spec which Max is running. Which being Debbie downers & support him for once or at least provide balanced commentary. Not one mention of the reasons Gasly shouldn’t go back to Red Bull. This is not good commentary or reporting. I expected more from F1 legends.

    I feel as though Renault signed Alonso to early and should have waited a bit. Gasly was right there for them to sign for either 2021 or 2022. But if Gasly signs with Renault for 2022 that means that Zhou won’t be able to get a seat and they may lose him to another team just as they did with Aitken. Plus Perez is also a free agent now so they could have probably signed him. Point im trying to make is that Renault should have probably signed Gasly for 2021. And it may have also fixed his and Ocon’s relationship. Whoever decided that signing a 40 year old retired driver over two promising young talents and one of if not the most consistent driver on the grid should be fired. Just Saying.

    RedBull has always been a pain in the arse to work for. In every aspect of the RedBull organization. From the top all the way down to the sales department. I bet if you’re the person delivering the mail to everyone’s desk inbox you better get constant times or your out ! Get outta here! Helmut says bring the guy off the dock and give him or her a try. It’s laughable. As Max would say.

    Because of RB's track record of hiring young drivers, putting too much pressure on them too soon, breaking them, and casting them aside without a second thought, there is no good answer to this question: -Gasly was very poor at RB, I didn't rate him at all, now he's back at TR or whatever it's latest name is he's proven me wrong. I wonder why? -If he's demoted back to RB what are the chances the team will break him again? -Albon is following exactly the same path Gasly and so many good drivers who have trodden before, and although I still rate him the rule has been "once broken always broken"... ...why should Gasly do better with a second chance? Kvyat can arguably match anyone for speed / talent but only got back in at TR because the team literally didn't have anyone else to put in the seat, has understandably not been performing that well, and looks to be on the verge of being booted out once again. Whatever decision RB makes that's another three drivers who won't be in F1 for very much longer. It is just possible Gasly has done enough this year that if RB do demote him to the main team followed by another inevitable break down he may persuade another team to take him. I realise F1 drives don't grow in trees but if I was looking for a seat (God forbid, I'm glad I did something useful with my life) RB and Renault would be top of my list as places I didn't want... ok, Ferrari would be my No1 undesirable seat but they don't take rookies.

    Red Bull has been geared around Max since he arrived there. We all saw it with Daniel Ricciardo's "second" car condition which was why Daniel had to leave them. They thought Max would dominate, but he didn't. So Daniel's car became inefficient as soon as he showed dominance. It's all there in history.

    For those who say Gasly should leave because Sainz is doing great after leaving Red Bull... Gasly and Albon don’t have a surname like Sainz. When Sainz was at Renault he lost out to Hulk.. lots of drivers in that situation would not simply get a drive at McLaren straight after, Sainz is the defacto “we want to keep Alonso fans” signing

    Johnmy mate, let them be. The only reason they did the swap last season was because last time they did it, it worked. It won't work anymore because the car is made for Max. And Gasly is not a top driver yet to challenge Max for the nr 1. Not worth it.

    Pierre should stay in Alpha Tauri as the car is developing well. If Alpha Tauri goes up the ladder to be in the top midfield, Pierre will continue to get podiums. Fact: Alpha Tauri may not be the top midfield team, but they have more podiums and higher podium places than ALL the mid fields.

    Bollocks. Johnny Herberts been drinking at Lunch again. Gasly got lucky with the tangle at the start (which is Gasly trying desperately to prove he can outdrive Albon) and Torpedo got fucked when he had the white tire on by being caught behind Gasly. The overall results even with Gasly podium show that. RB need to stick with Albon, Max does not want Gasly back in the team, Gasly should look elsewhere. Overall this is a race win on some merit but mostly without the Mercedes procedural mistake King Lewis would have won, Carlos second, and Nozzer or Perez third. The only driver exposed today was Bottas and that was by his far superior teammate. Mercedes should appeal to Verstappen, because the King will be leaving F1 at the end of this year.

    The comments seem to all agree for different reason, but they all seem to pay attention more than the commentators. My biggest takeaway is that Pierre prefers cars with understeer, RBR has massive oversteer for Max. The only way they can both race together is if the engineers find a middle ground, which will make both racers slower. Quit trying to make it seem like RB made the wrong decision and let Albon (who is only in his second season and by RBs own admission, isn't running the same car as Max) learn the damn car and stop comparing him to Max. Imagine taking a second year, putting him in a Merc and then asking why he cant keep up with Hamilton.

    This is poor journalism. Firstly, Sky F1 needs to prove that the two RB cars are equal in order to compare Max's results with Albon's. Secondly, Sky F1 needs to prove that Gasly's AT is inferior to Albon's RB. Thirdly, even Max was poor at Monza and eventually retired. What was Albon's car like? Fourthly, why wasn't Gasly given a penalty for not leaving a car width when he pushed Albon off the track? Why did Albon get a penalty for exactly the same thing? Instead of throwing out platitudes, these ex-drivers need to get more insight and present it to viewers rather than speculate as the fans do.
