Marko: Next year there will be a very young driver next to him

Red Bull Racing advisor Helmut Marko seems to reveal who will be driving at AlphaTauri in 2021 alongside Pierre Gasly. Despite Honda retiring from Formula 1, Daniil Kvyat seems likely to make way for Yuki Tsunoda.

Last year for Kvyat

Marko spoke with Sky Germany after qualifying in Imola and seems to reveal who will be Gasly's teammate in 2021. “Gasly is driving great this year. He will not be driving at Red Bull next year, as AlphaTauri need him as a team leader. Next year there will be a very young driver next to him," says Marko.

With this, the Austrian seems to indicate that there is no place for Kvyat in 2021. Marko is therefore asked whether Kvyat should make way for Tsunoda. “You could look at it that way," replies Marko. Kvyat's position has been uncertain for a long time and this is the first time that the Red Bull team management have made a statement about this.
