Marko: Red Bull will teach Gasly discipline

Red Bull advisor Dr. Helmut Marko believes that Pierre Gasly will need to learn a little bit of discipline during his opening year with the team in 2019. Gasly joins the energy drink outfit after his first full season in F1 with its junior squad Toro Rosso.

The 22-year-old will partner Max Verstappen, as Daniel Ricciardo has opted to leave in favour of Renault. And Marko says that the Frenchman will be under tight scrutiny from Red Bull next year.

"In football if you're not performing, you're sitting on the bench," Marko said to Autosport. "Gasly has shown speed, but of course we have to [install] discipline a little bit. But also, the support from the team is a different one. We're confident that he can do it."

Gasly rated his 2018 campaign as an "8.5 out of 10", saying that his aim was to get the most out of the package he was given. Gasly recorded a best result of fourth at the Bahrain Grand Prix, before going on to grab four other top ten finishes.

"In my first complete season my main target was to make the best out of the package I had," Gasly said. "I knew there would be two, three, four opportunities in the season to score big points.

"All the opportunities that came to us in Bahrain [fourth], Monaco [seventh], Budapest [sixth], I would say they were the main three ones where we managed to do the right thing. In Bahrain I had to deliver a good qualifying at the right time to have the free air in the race and that's what I managed to do.

  • This article made me imagine Marko cosplaying as general Chang, singing "Mr I-'ll make a man out of you-".

      I think he will be comprehensively discomfited by Max. I predict that he will last one year in Red Bull. With less confidence I predict that this will be the last team Gasly drives for.

      If I am proven wrong by Gasly, I will eat my words and apologize publicly here :)

    • He kinda should be though. Max has been in the team for longer now and have more experience with F1. If Gasly are being competitive against Verstappen, I'll be impressed. Thine words shalt be screenshotted, and alas thine word shalt hold thou honest through next season...eth... ;)

      Dr. Helmut Marko ... A.K.A. Helmuttonhead, an honorary Doctorate, bestowed upon you for your prowess in felatio and verbal diahrea regarding Dieter and little boys. It's no wonder that you and Bernie got along so famously. I am grateful that you dislike visiting Canada, as we have unwritten rules regarding people like you, and their fate.
      As a racer, you where nothing, yet you claim the glory of all of the others that you do not even employ. You and Monicia and VJ should share a cell and chat it out for the rest of your lives. But I am a firm believer in Karma. Here in Canada ... Karma is quick.

    • Oh Canada we'll stand in guard for thee as you lock the likes of Marco in a cell to rot and toss the key into the sea, only uttering a single word as you exit the dungeon... "Sorry"...

    • Right?! I say let him be a little reckless and he'll be in good company with Max.

      Dr. Helmuttonhead has no more insight into any racing than ... Me. He takes credit for a team of people that he has never met. Pure P.R.

      @xoya, team rules ... and with their arrogance, they figure their team rules the rules. Ask Jean Todt. He wants to make everybody closer .... cuddle up ... money transfer first.... now grab your anlkles ...
