    Here's my thoughts: I am a massive, *massive* Albon fan. He's my favourite driver on the grid and my eye is always on him. But no matter how much you love him, Albon isn't good enough *yet*. He did what, not even 10 races in an F1 car before he was thrust into what is now Mercedes' biggest competitor. Now I don't know much about F1 at all, I only started watching last season and have no clue about all the technical stuff. Albon may have reasons for why he's not performing as well, but he still isn't where he needs to be. He deserves the red bull seat but not at his current level. If it were me and I wasn't thinking about the business side of things, I would have given Gasly a season in the Red Bull and Albon in the Toro Rosso and then swap them after a year, compare the pair and put forward who is better. You must remember that Gasly is now performing well, but because there's not as much pressure on him now. I support Albon 100%, but he really needs to pick up pace. Seeing red bull supporting him vocally is nice but they need to do more that just speak words of encouragement. This was all most likely incorrect and dumb I'm sorry lol.

    Max is a once -in-a-generation driver. When put in the same car, besides Lewis and maybe Charles, there's no one who can keep up with him atm. Even Daniel saw the wrings on the wall and left Red Bull for it. Red Bull simply doesn't have an alternative for Albon, who is a solid driver and still has enough potential to come closer to Max. And that's why they support him.

    Remember this Red Bull car has been designed for Max Verstappen not Albon. Verstappen demands speed and he is better in handling the instability. And that is the reason why inexperienced but talented F1 drivers have more difficulty with it. The Mercedes on the other hand is incredibly stable and that is part of the reason why the Mercedes are so far ahead of Red Bull. If the Red Bull was more stable then both Albon and Gasly would be much closer to Verstappen.

    I like Gasly and Albon but Red Bull have reaped what they sowed when they lost Danny Ricciardo. No use openly building a team around one driver when lost points in the championship mean lost "$" for the team's finances. I wonder how much more Red Bull would earn at the end of the year in prize money compared to what they thought they were saving by offering Ricciardo a poor contract.

    He just isn't at the required level. Handling pressure is the name of the game in F1 and he doesn't seem to be able to manage that. Max is quick but Ricciardo was able to match him and therefore Red Bull will expect whoever is in the seat to do that as well no matter what they say publicly. I think they will give him to the end of the season and then make a change.

    Alex and Pierre are both very talented and quick drivers. Bottom line is, if you put a junior into the top seat instead of an experienced driver, you need to add that time ingredient. A lot of people say 'doesn't matter it's the 2nd best car on the grid!!' yeah but if you pay attention to what both Alex and Pierre have said so far in their stints it is far more nuanced than that. They both need/needed time to find that clicking point. Unfortunately when you have Max as a benchmark and the media on your back about how quickly you can get up to speed it's easy to see why Pierre and Alex have struggled. If Gasly was given a proper opportunity and the time to settle I'm sure he would've gotten there. Likewise with Alex, I don't doubt he can get up to speed. It's whether or not Red Bull have the patience with their junior drivers to let them build up to that, or if they are just gonna chop Alex and Pierre, stick Tsunoda in somewhere down the line and hope he's another Max. Tough gig and tough for fans because I think we can all agree Alex and Pierre are immensely likeable drivers. End of the day this is F1 though so nothing is certain!

    0:50 *Alex: Quick cars don't tend to be easy* ... I don't really fully agree. Don't get me wrong, I'm not having a go at Alex...but in my (limited, outsider's) opinion the quickest (championship winning) cars, more often than not, tend to be easier and more glued to the track. Not to say cars can't be both quick and tricky. Ferrari was just like that a few years back...fast but difficult to find the sweet spot.

      He has the second best car on the grid, which should see him be 4th as there is two of every car. He is only 3 points ahead of Leclerc and Norris, 6 points ahead of stroll and 62 points behind max. He is in a precarious position and could see himself fall back in the standings very quickly. It's not just about driver standings though, there is also the constructors, and the fact his bad qualifying and inconsistent pace is compromising not only his own race strategy, but also team strategy which could have been a massive help his year given Bottas's sloppy season.

      OR, perhaps Red Bull could make their car work for BOTH drivers. Allow BOTH drivers the ability to set the car up to their OWN strengths?. I've heard other, world champion, drivers claim that when a car is good it feels natural, easy to drive, intuitive. This Red Bull is setup for one driver and not both. They are not allowing both drivers the best chance by having such a mono-dimensional race-car, a one-trick-pony of a car. The strategies they have put Albon on have also been bloody awful and haven't allowed him to get to the head of the field by pitting him into the back-marker cars way too early.

      Now that Max has lesser teammates, people truly see how good Danny Ric is. In 3 seasons together Danny Ric beat Max 2-1. Again not saying Danny Ric is better than Max but it goes to show that Danny Ric is truly one of the best on the grid rn.

      It is that Albon is slow, he even said why in the video. He needs more front end to control the car, which means he has more drag on the straights, which means he's too slow and will never be a top driver. Albon not being able to handle the car is an Albon problem, not a Red Bull problem.

      Max Allen Oh please Danny Ric literally beat Max head to head over 2 years on points/poles etc. But Max was the future so he left. Ricardo was always down Max’s throat if not beating him, 1 race isn’t an example when Albon does it consistentl, bear in mind that’s 4th with Merc & Ferrari’s, Alex literally only has 2 Merc a & Max who should be ahead 5 cars & he still hardly ever gets 4th, & if he does he’s a min/lap down

      chilts217 Albon had much stronger pace in F2 amongst competitors in more equal cars he had the second most wins and pole positions after George Russell. Perhaps Norris was more consistent so he got 2nd but in pace Albon was much quicker and Alex had more than twice as many retirements (accidents, reliability) yet finished only 7 points behind Norris in the end. Many like you just wanna hate on him and that’s my problem because this level of spitefulness towards any driver is never warranted frankly looks like a strange obsession
