Pierre Gasly not afraid of Red Bull and Verstappen

Pierre Gasly insists, he is not afraid of life with a top team, nor of having Max Verstappen as his teammate. Gasly and Verstappen, who are both in their early 20s, already know each other after they were young rivals in elite karting. "I remember I was on pole for all four heats, but we finished two of the four together in the grass," Gasly told the Dutch publication Formule 1 as he recalled one particular race meeting in Italy. "Max was already very aggressive back then. We respected each other and drove hard races, but we did not have a close relationship," he revealed. Asked whether he feels that pressure, Gasly answered: "I have always had pressure. "That's why I'm not afraid of it at Red Bull next year, because I'm used to it. I'm looking forward to the duel with Max."
