Pierre Gasly’s tough start to his Red Bull life continues as the Frenchman drove past the weighbridge in FP2 resulting in a pitlane start.
Just as it seemed things were going right for Red Bull and Pierre Gasly, they are dealt with another blow. At the end of FP2, Gasly drove straight past the weighbridge and did not attempt to stop for it. This has resulted in a pitlane start and has ruined his chances of a good finish.
Red Bull will now want to focus all their efforts on Max Verstappen, in qualifying and will probably do more race runs with Gasly to try and minimise the damage, on Sunday.
Gasly was P9 in FP2 and didn’t run in FP1 due to all of the problems with the drains around the circuit.
