Red Bull need discipline for Gasly

Pierre Gasly will need to have “discipline” instilled in him by Red Bull according to Helmut Marko.

Gasly will step up to Red Bull after one season with their junior team, Toro Rosso after he was picked to replace Daniel Ricciardo after he moved to Renault.

The 22-year-old will now partner Max Verstappen at Red Bull in 2019.

Helmut Marko told Autosport that Gasly will be under scrutiny because “that’s what F1 is like.”

"In football if you're not performing, you're sitting on the bench," Marko warned.

"Gasly has shown speed, but of course we have to [instil] discipline a little bit.

"But also, the support from the team is a different one. We're confident that he can do it."

Despite admitting there was room for improvement Gasly said he was pleased with his performances in his debut season in F1 which saw a best of fourth in Bahrain.

"I knew there would be two, three, four opportunities in the season to score big points. Gasly told Autosport.

"All the opportunities that came to us in Bahrain [fourth], Monaco [seventh], Budapest [sixth], I would say they were the main three ones where we managed to do the right thing.

"In Bahrain I had to deliver a good qualifying at the right time to have the free air in the race and that's what I managed to do.
