Gasly Says Verstappen the “Perfect Reference” for Him

By: Francis Joseph

Pierre Gasly believes Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen is the “perfect reference” to have in his first season with a top Formula 1 team.

The French driver completed his first full campaign in the sport last year, racing for Honda-powered Toro Rosso, before he was promoted to Red Bull Racing for 2019 after Daniel Ricciardo decided to leave for Renault.

Although Red Bull is convinced Gasly will be able to perform, team boss Christian Horner admitted the promotion came “faster than we would have liked”.

Gasly reckons racing alongside Verstappen, rated as one of the best drivers on the grid, will help him raise him game this season.

“I think Max at the moment, based on the performance he showed last year – it’s difficult, you know, to compare with Lewis [Hamilton] or Seb [Vettel] – but he’s clearly one of the best and most talented guys in the paddock at the moment,” Gasly told Motorsport .com.

“So for me it’s perfect to have a reference like him he added.
