Gasly has had a challenging season with Red Bull after he stepped up to replace Daniel Ricciardo. The Frenchman failed to make it to Q3 in his opening two races and since then has never finished higher than fourth. Carlos Sainz sits just five points behind him in the Drivers' Championship for McLaren.
Red Bull made the announcement on Monday morning but RMC Sport are reporting that Gasly found out just hours before it was confirmed. They are also reporting that the relationship between the French driver and his engineers was tainted.
However, Gasly's lawyer reportedly told RMC Sport that he is ready to get back to work and "show his true value in a team he loves and with whom he has already proven, Toro Rosso."
