Kvyat to replace Gasly at Red Bull?

Former IndyCar and now Le Mans driver Mikhail Aleshin believes that Pierre Gasly’s debut performance for Red Bull in the opening Grand Prix of the season in Australia was so disappointing that the Frenchman could be replaced by Daniil Kvyat sooner rather than later.

Despite Max Verstappen putting in an impressive showing in Melbourne to finish third in the same car, Gasly ended up finishing out of the points in 11th, with Kvyat one spot ahead in 10th.

Aleshin, a compatriot of Kyyat, reckons the Toro Rosso driver’s performance will put him in strong contention to replace Gasly - even after just one race.

"It was very good to see Kvyat showing his character and not letting Pierre Gasly go past in Melbourne," Aleshin told Sportbox.

"It is hard to know why Gasly drove so inexpressively, but if Kvyat continues in the same spirit, we can all have hope that Daniil could move to the stronger team.

"I understand that such thoughts may be premature, but for us this situation is, of course, positive.”

It is Aleshin’s opinion that Kvyat maximised the performance of his Toro Rosso car by finishing 10th in Australia.

“I don’t think that these places will be much higher than the result in the Australian Grand Prix,” he continued.

“Still, Toro Rosso is not Red Bull or Ferrari.

“But with the right updates and without technical problems, the team will consistently fight for the top ten.”
