Albon is halfway through his rookie season in Formula 1, and has impressed but many people were surprised that Red Bull have called upon the young driver from its sister team Toro Rosso.
With Daniil Kvyat having a podium finish to his name this season, as well as almost double the points, the Russian may feel quite hard done by that he wasn't the man called up to race alongside Max Verstappen.
Brundle has sent his condolences to Gasly, who has failed to compete at all with Verstappen this season, with the Frenchman not even scoring a podium during his first season in one of the top three cars.
"Commiseratons to Pierre, but he rides again and is still in the game," Brundle said on his Twitter account, with Gasly moving back to his former team Toro Rosso for the remainder of the season.
"Good luck to Alex, he's arrived in F1 in great style, but will need every tool and trick in the F1 drivers' repertoire to survive in Max's lair. With the star maker/grim reaper forensically observing this data."
