    If only a certain team on the grid would adapt the setup and car to the driver instead of forcing the driver to adapt to the car and to the setup. We've seen Albon fighting the car for 18 whole rounds now. He never fought the F2 car he drove back in 2018, so why is he fighting the red bull's F1? It's these little things that keep bothering me about Albon's current state.

    Imagine your golden boy Albon being outperformed by the very man he replaced. saying it is easier to drive doesn`t mean Gasly should be outperforming Albon in a Race as the Alpha Tauri is 6th/7th fastest and as Max shows red bull is the second quickest. they also say Max and Albon`s car is equally build so.. A slower car outperforming a faster car because it is so called "Easier" to drive is bullsh*t

    red bull expect a lot from their drivers, but to do as bad as albon is doing in that car is worrying. He is a good driver, but think he struggles with the car, like every other driver when theyre racing with max, the car is hard but rewarding

    I feel like RB will offer Gasly a seat and there's a good chance he'll say no. Alex has potential but I think he'd be a lot better off being a 1st driver for a midfield team. As for Pierre he seems comfortable in the Alpha Tauri or whatever they'll be called next year who knows. I think Kvyat is gonna get axed and maybe they get a star studded rookie to be his teammate. Or maybe they pick up Grosjean and have a French driver lineup which would be pretty cool imo.

You need to move on and stop trying to get someone the sack..

    He compared Bottas with Albon, but their cases are totally different. Bottas has been constantly behind Lewis (although he has been on a league of its own), but Albon is not. Max is about to be a hundred points ahead of Albon's tally of 62.

    Red Bull should go with someone with lots of experience (Perez and Hulkenberg). Not every day are you going to a Verstappen who you can promote after 1 season. You need at least 2 seasons to build your confidence to drive for a top team and get good results. This would have been better for Pierre and Alex if they did this. Give Alex an Alpha Tauri seat next to Gasly for 2021.

    Do you really think RB wants another Ricciardo/ Verstappen scenario? Equal ability racing each other to DNFs? It's RB's team they can do what they will, but it IS a toxic environment for the 2nd driver no matter their ability. They have a car capable of podiums and every driver wants access to that. But what is the point if you may not last through a season?

    Regardless of the driver skills, red bull's different attitude to Albon and Gasly is just outright unfair. They openly criticized how Gasly wanted to set up the car to suit himself and did not show this much support at all. There's definitely favoritism towards the British driver.

      @Sravan That’s great bro.Yes there are rumours floating around there that Gasly might replace Ocon at Renault/Alpine but it’s not Confirmed. moreover Gasly is still under contractual obligation at RedBull Academy and in line to drive for Alpha Tauri next season and unless he cut the ties with them he can’t go anywhere and Ocon himself contracted to Alpine for two years but this is F1 anything can happen and nobody expected Perez to be ousted from Racing Point a few months back and in coming weeks we may get an answer where does Redbull stand on 2nd driver status and I do hope somehow Albon stays in F1

      It’s pretty much unlikely if they expelled him from Redbull he might not have a seat in Alpha Tauri too because Yuki Tsunoda F2 Honda junior is waiting in the wings most assuredly to replace Danil Kvyat next season as he looks he is in favourable position for the required Superlicence points at the end of this F2 season or else he have to wait for an another season I think Redbull somehow try to keep Álex Albon probably at the expense of Gasly in Alpha Tauri as Redbull is co owned by Austria and Thailand. by the way just curious are you a Tamil?

    Redbull have built a car that only 1 man can extract the maximum performance from. I don't believe that they are making the necessary adjustments for Albon to perform adequately. If it's that difficult to drive then is it really a good car? I wouldn't say so.

    Easy, if RBR wants be able to win and get maximum points with two cars they will go for Pérez. If they want a very good 2nd driver, without disturb Max they will go for Hulk. Both drivers can do very well they job, and they are better options compared with RBR have for now until Albon get experience as Gasly i without lot of pressure in AT.

    Such hypocrisy from this guy every time, he is saying that because alpha tauri is slow it’s easy to drive for Gasly while redbull is fast and that’s why more difficult but the same guy claims Lewis wins only coz he as a faster car by his logic doesn’t it make Mercedes the hardest to drive? And doesn’t that make Lewis the best of all time?
