Gasly must deliver after no car issues found

Helmut Marko has now called for Pierre Gasly to start delivering in performances after confirming that there haven’t been any issues with the car.

Gasly, promoted to the Red Bull team from Toro Rosso for this season, has been outperformed by teammate Max Verstappen consistently throughout this season and has been under pressure from poor performances recently.
 
After Austria, where the Frenchman finished seventh, he complained of having issues with the car but Marko now confirms that was not the case.
 
Marko said to Motorsport-Total: “There was a bit of an excuse for Austria.
 
“We burned all the front wings in the practice sessions, so he didn’t have the same front wing as Max, but that doesn’t explain the gap.

“It [the car] has to deliver now, but so does Gasly.

“He was always looking for issues with the car, in the chassis. We have looked through this. There was nothing.”

Despite the amount of rumours and pressure building up around the performances of Gasly Marko insisted that Red Bull will support their driver.

“The plan now is to support him as much as possible," he added.

"He gets Max’s set-up from the start, because he’s the more experienced driver and has the more experienced engineering team.

“He can mess around with it, but he can’t seriously move away from it – he was experimenting with his set-up before and jumping from one extreme to the other.”
