Horner on Gasly's future at Red Bull: He is a quick driver

Pierre Gasly has had a difficult season with Red Bull so far this year and pressure is rising on him to improve or lose his seat at one of the top teams in Formula 1. However, team boss Christian Horner is still backing the Frenchman but does admit that Gasly needs to "reset" if he is to stay at the team next season. 

It is easy to forget that Gasly is only in his second season in Formula 1. He impressed many when he was at Toro Rosso but seems to have taken a backwards step this year. 

"Pierre is having a tough time at the moment, we're doing our best to support him, I think he just needs a reset," Horner said to the Official F1 Website

"I think we have got to somehow press control-alt-delete in his head and start again.

"He is a quick driver. The problem he has got is that Max is delivering every week, and that puts more pressure on him to perform, but we're sticking by him.

"We still believe in him and we'll give him all the support we can to try and nurture the talent we know he has."

Gasly will hope to impress at Silverstone and that he can do enough to stay at Red Bull. He is a very talented driver and he needs to show it soon.
