Ranked: from Pierre Gasly to Sebastian Vettel and Max Verstappen - Red Bull's 10 F1 drivers since 2005

With Alexander Albon the next Red Bull driver, a look at who has previously raced for the Austrian team and how they fared

Alexander Albon will become the 11th driver to compete for Red Bull Racing when he starts the Belgian Grand Prix on September 1.

The Thai driver, 23, has been promoted from Toro Rosso, Red Bull's sister team, with the struggling Pierre Gasly going the other way after a disappointing first 12 races of 2019.

Red Bull's statement on the move on Monday highlighted that Albon, who only made his F1 debut in March in Australia has the remaining nine races of the season, culminating with the Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on December 1, to impress the team and earn a permanent drive for 2020.

Here is a look at the previous drivers who have competed for Red Bull and who Albon is following in the footsteps of.
