'People in the Red Bull camp feel Albon deserves another chance'

Yuki Tsunoda is having another difficult weekend in Hungary. The Japanese driver crashed hard into the wall during the first free practice session, forcing him to stay inside for the majority of the session a few hours later.

It's the next setback for Tsunoda who has not been driving consistently this season at AlphaTauri. Where his teammate Pierre Gasly is in ninth position in the world championship, the Japanese driver is currently in 14th position. He has 29 points less than the Frenchman.

"During the summer break he's got to do some thinking," stated Karun Chandhok on Sky Sports. "The people in the Red Bull camp believe that Alex Albon deserves another shot at AlphaTauri. Juri vips in Championship contention, Liam Lawson won a race in DTM. They're not short of replacements, Tsunoda has got to start delivering."

Strong time Gasly

Gasly again did a lot better than his teammate in Hungary. The French driver drove a time of 1:18:113, putting him in sixth place.
