Christian Horner says Pierre Gasly could return to Red Bull in the future because if he didn’t believe that, he wouldn’t have kept him on at Toro Rosso.
Gasly was promoted to Red Bull ahead of this year’s championship only to be demoted to Toro Rosso midseason.
The Frenchman, though, has risen to the challenge, scoring in five out of eight races including a runner-up result at the Brazilian Grand Prix.
Impressed by the driver’s performances, Horner insists the Red Bull door isn’t closed to Gasly.
“If we didn’t believe he was a candidate for us we would have released him from the contract,” the Red Bull team boss explained.
“But obviously we still believe in his talent and that’s why we retained him within the group.”
“It’s great to see him get his first podium, so it’s a fantastic day for Red Bull. Hopefully, that confidence will only continue to grow.”
