A miserable first two laps in the Portuguese Grand Prix wrecked Alex Albon’s attempt to respond to the ultimatum he has been handed over his Red Bull Formula 1 future. Red Bull has made Albon’s situation clear as it bids to finalise its driver line-up for 2021: it wants to keep Albon alongside Max Verstappen but needs its second driver to “justify” the position. “It’s Alex’s seat to lose really,” team boss Christian Horner told Sky Sports F1 ahead of Portuguese GP qualifying. “We’re getting to a point in the year where we’re going to need to make decisions, really within the next two or three weeks about our line-up for next year. “Our hope and desire is that Alex demonstrates and just grabs that seat by the scruff of its neck and owns it.” Does Gasly deserve another shot with Red Bull?
