Verstappen and Gasly like Schumacher or Hakkinen with me, says Brundle
Formula 1 racer turned pundit Martin Brundle says Pierre Gasly's predicament with team-mate Max Verstappen vastly outperforming him at Red Bull reminds him of struggles in his own career when teaming with world champion pair Michael Schumacher and Mika Hakkinen.
Brundle raced alongside Schumacher at Benetton in 1992, before also teaming with the German's future fierce rival Hakkinen at McLaren, where the Finn would later become a double world champion.
Gasly is yet to finish a race ahead of Verstappen and qualified ahead of him only in Canada, where the Dutchman was left marooned in Q2 when a red flag cut short his flying lap.
Reports have already emerged that Red Bull could dispense of Gasly's services before the end of the year. The team certainly has form.
