Villeneuve: “Red Bull building team around Verstappen”

Former Formula 1 World Champion Jacques Villeneuve is confident Red Bull is built around Max Verstappen and that will make his teammate Pierre Gasly struggle to get up to speed.

“Red Bull is built around Verstappen, so Gasly has no chance of beating Max this season,” Villeneuve told the Dutch publication racingnews365.

“Gasly made a little impression last year and was not consistent, but this year the pressure just seems too much for him.

“He’s gone to a team where there is already an absolute leader and he also has Helmut Marko over him,” the former Williams driver added.
