It is not yet clear who in the Formula 1 season 2020 will ride alongside Max Verstappen for Red Bull. Team boss Christian Horner has indicated after the US Grand Prix, however, that a decision may have already fallen. One cockpit, three candidates: With this bill, Red Bull goes into the last two races of the Formula 1 season 2019. Whether Alex Albon , Pierre Gasly or Daniil Kvyat next year may sit in the perhaps title-lane vehicle of the Austrians, is not yet officially confirmed. But Christian Horner got hold of Austin, Texas, that there is a clear favorite.
"At the moment it's his place and he's doing a really good job," Horner answered when asked if Alex Albon would continue alongside Max Verstappen next season. "We'll have time until the end of the year. All three riders are also under contract for the next year, so we are in no hurry – but everyone is so far very impressed by what he delivers [Albon]"added the team boss. Homer's praise is no coincidence. After Albon began the season at Toro Rosso and already had some impressive results there, including a sixth place in the GP of Germany, the rookie in the Red Bull seamlessly tied to his strong performances. In seven races so far for the A team of Austrians drove Albon a fourth, four fifth and two sixth places. Since his first race in Belgium, Albon has even scored more points than Verstappen (68:54).
