Dr Helmut Marko has denied rumors that Pierre Gasly could be on his way to Alpine.
Dr. Helmut Marko has denied rumors that Pierre Gasly could be on their way to Alpine.
But Marko told Auto Motor und Sport that Gasly will stay.
“The package fits him perfectly on Alpha Tauri,” he said. “The combination fits well together.
“We still have a contract that lasts for another two years, so I do not know where the conversation about Renault is coming from. Pierre is the ideal ambassador for Alpha Tauri as the fashionable Frenchman.”
As for Gasly’s rookie teammate Yuki Tsunoda, Marko has moved the erratic 21-year-old from England to Italy to be under the daily supervision of Franz Tost for the rest of the season.
“With more experience he should get better and better. I expect points from him regularly in the second half of the season,” Marko said.
And if there are new vacancies in the Red Bull driver camp, 78-year-old Marko says there is enough growing young talent to fill those gaps.
“We have a large pool of drivers,” Marko insisted.
“You have written that we have no young guys, but (Juri) Vips wins in Formula 2, if the car allows it, and (Liam) Lawson is definitely in front.
“So there are a lot of talents from our own ranks who want to run for Red Bull,” he said.
