Marko tells Gasly: If you don't perform, you go to the bench

Marko tells Gasly: If you don't perform, you go to the bench

Helmut Marko has used a comparison to football to describe how much scrutiny Pierre Gasly will be under following his promotion to the team from Toro Rosso, saying that, like in football, if someone doesn't perform then will be put on the bench.

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner has said that Gasly, who steps up from the junior team Toro Rosso, will get some time to get up to speed in 2019.

But Marko said: "Pierre Gasly will be under scrutiny, because that's the way formula one is.

"It's the same in football. If you don't perform, you go to the bench.

"Gasly has proved he is fast, now we have to teach him a little more discipline," Marko added. "But he gets a lot of support from the team, and we're sure he'll make it."

Max Verstappen also weighed in on the appointment of Gasly as his new partner, and thinks he couldn't ask for better attributes within a team-mate.

"When it became clear that Daniel Ricciardo was going to Renault, it was obvious that Pierre would come," the Dutchman told Speed Week.

"He is a great guy. I've known him from karting. He is straightforward, smart, nice -- you cannot ask for more," the Dutchman said of his new teammate.
