Who will drive next to Verstappen in 2021? Tost: Decision in November at the lates

At the end of October or the beginning of November it will become clear which driver will definitely be the team mate of Max Verstappen at Red Bull in 2021. Albon or Gasly again? Or maybe Sergio Pérez?

Pierre Gasly's spectacular victory last week put the rumour machine back on track. Would he still get a second chance at Red Bull? Especially because Alexander Albon is still unable to find his niche next to Verstappen. In any case, AlphaTauri team boss Franz Tost still has full confidence in the young Frenchman. "He is one of the best young drivers and capable of winning races/ At least one race so far. What he has shown at Monza remains fantastic", said Tost at Sky Sports F1.

The fact that Gasly will have a seat in Formula 1 next year seems a certainty by now, but whether that will be at Red Bull or AlphaTauri remains the big question. "At the end of October or the beginning of November there should be clarity. Red Bull will then decide which drivers will join which team". In addition to the question of who will be driving with Red Bull in addition to Verstappen, it remains to be seen whether Daniil Kvyat will get one of the four seats available within Red Bull at all. The Russian hasn't been around all season and there are several candidates, including Japanese Formula 2 driver Yuki Tsunoda.
