Continuing, he said that Gasly is doing a “great job” at Scuderia AlphaTauri, “and of course, we’re seeing his progress because we have a lot of information about how he’s developing and performing.”

Commenting on the pace difference between Max Verstappen and Alex Albon, Horner said, “You think back to some of the great drivers, whether it’s a Schumacher or a Senna, and being the driver alongside those guys was very tough.

“I think it’s a similar situation with that seat alongside Max at the moment, but Alex is only going to get better.

“He’s still pretty young and inexperienced and we’re doing all we can to support and develop him.”
