Gasly believes he is too aggressive with the RB15

Pierre Gasly believes he needs to control his aggression a bit more in order to extract more performance from his RB15 and from the 2019 sets of tyres.

Gasly joined Red Bull Racing from Toro Rosso at the start of the season; with Daniel Ricciardo leaving the team that finished third last season.

The Frenchman has now raced five times for his new team - but it's been far from the perfect start for Gasly - who has got nowhere near his new team-mate Max Verstappen.

Gasly has made some slight progress recently, though, with Red Bull improving his car and the youngster getting used to his surroundings a tad more perhaps.

"I'm not too far (off)," Gasly claimed. "I think that we've found something I am pretty happy with, but still there are a few things I'd like to change, so it's difficult to know exactly how far.

"I think that we've found something I am pretty happy with, but still there are a few things I'd like to change, so it's difficult to know exactly how far. But what I can feel is that there's more to come.

"At least with what we've found there is more consistency, more predictability and I think it's a better baseline to work from every weekend. We're pretty happy with the baseline we have but I think to really find the last few tenths, there are a few things we need to change and also on my side to really suit the car as it is at the moment.

"Coming into the team with the package we had at the beginning, I think the performance on some tracks was good but still my driving style was too aggressive and it didn't suit the car so well."
