Gasly using Verstappen's set-ups in bid to improve form

Pierre Gasly will use Max Verstappen's set-ups at this weekend's British Grand Prix in an attempt to improve his form in the Red Bull after an extremely underwhelming season so far.

Gasly has only finished in the top five once this season, at Monaco, and was even lapped by his teammate Verstappen as the Dutchman won the Austrian Grand Prix a fortnight ago.

There has been plenty of criticism for the Frenchman, not least from Red Bull's Helmut Marko, who told Autosport: "Gasly has not yet met our expectations, we are now trying to help him.

"We are now changing many things, adapting and helping him, but now Gasly has to deliver.

"He was always looking for the mistake in the car, in the chassis. We checked it, there was nothing.

"Our position now is to support him in the best possible way. He now gets Max's set-up from the start because Max is more experienced, and also has the more experienced engineering team.

"Within this given set-up he is allowed to play around so that it fits his driving style, but he's not supposed to dramatically move away from that.

"Before that he experimented a lot and jumped from one extreme to the other."
