(GMM) Pierre Gasly says he has identified how to change his driving style for the rest of the 2019 season.

Gasly stepped up from Toro Rosso this year to replace Daniel Ricciardo at Red Bull, but so far has struggled to shine alongside Max Verstappen.

After China, he acknowledged that he needs to adjust his driving style.

"Looking at the data, I can see where I'm losing time," the Frenchman now tells Auto Hebdo.

"It is not at corner entry but rather at the exit. I am too aggressive with the throttle, which causes the rear wheels to slide. As a result, my tires wear out faster.

"We are trying to find a solution with the setup, but I must also adapt my driving to better exploit the potential of the car," Gasly added.
