Perhaps Perez & RBull have the provision against demoting him to AT mid-season. But hypothetically, if Perez continues to get beaten by Bottas and maybe one Norris, and if he and Verstappen still have a large delta in Qualifying, would Marko not move Gasly back to the senior team mid-season like the Gasly-Albon situation?. Gasly is really the only competitor for that 2nd RedBull seat, and I think there is enough evidence to show Albon is not on Gasly or Perez' level - which is no indictment on Albon's skill at all but just a remark. I just thought it'd be interesting, given Perez' bad form right now and Dr. Marko's tendency to burn thru 2nd drivers in recent years.
