Red Bull chief Christian Horner admits he is expecting ‘big things’ from Pierre Gasly as he prepares to move teams in 2019. The Toro Rosso man has impressed this season and has scored 29 points so far.
However, he has just two races left with the outfit before he steps up to Red Bull to fill the void left by the Renault-bound Daniel Ricciardo.
Gasly will follow the likes of Ricciardo, Max Verstappen, Daniil Kvyat and Sebastian Vettel in stepping up to Red Bull and Horner is expecting a bright future.
“I think it will be a challenge for Pierre but one that he’s up for,” Horner told Motorsport. “He’s come through the same programme as Max, and he’s here because we believe he’s the best upcoming talent and he deserves that opportunity in the car. “So we’re expecting big things from Pierre next year.”
