VIDEO: Gasly previews Monaco GP: 'The risk is a lot bigger'
Pierre Gasly hopes to continue his improving start to lie at Red Bull at this weekend's Monaco Grand Prix. Gasly finished sixth in Spain last time out, while last year's trip to Monte Carlo resulted in the Frenchman's second-highest finish of the season.
Gasly finished seventh in Monaco for Toro Rosso last year, only bettered by his fourth-place finish in Bahrain.
Although Gasly struggled at the start of the season after joining Red Bull's senior squad, he also finished sixth in China and would have likely done the same in Azerbaijan if not for a late driveshaft failure.

Speaking ahead of the race, Gasly said: "Monaco is such a special and unique weekend and it's probably one of my favourites. One lap in qualifying can be the most exciting of the season. It's just the rush of adrenaline during those 70 seconds, you're almost touching the walls.
"Something I also love is that it's a technical track and the feeling I got there last year on Saturday was amazing. I had a great race with my second best result of the season, so I'm looking forward to going back and keeping up the momentum.
"It's also my second home race of the season which feels special because my friends and family will be there and there's lots of support from France which gives me a boost during the weekend."
