Albon and Gasly to swap seats from next race! Interesting that Redbull wants to evaluate Albon to see how he fares against Verstappen instead of promoting Kvyat who is already a known material.

Very interesting. Is there some issue of finances. There normally is. It will be tough on Albon to get used to new engine.

Red Bull is financially strong. Its all about second rate drive by Gasly. He's been lapped by Verstappen in couple of races. Redbull are pretty close to Ferrari in constructors championship, they need a competent second driver.

I guess what you mean to say is chassis/package, since both Redbull and Toro Rosso are powered by Honda.

I was surprised to know of the Thai connection! Never knew that Red Bull had Thai origin. So much for marketing!

Dream move for Albon. All eyes on him come Spa. Last time there was a mid season driver swap at RBR/STR the new guy won his first race. That driver was of course Max "Mad Max" Verstappen himself.
