Pierre Gasly says he is not approaching his new role at Red Bull as a mission to "destroy" Max Verstappen.

The Frenchman has been signed up to replace Daniel Ricciardo from 2019, but he insists his only initial goal is to settle in and do a good job for himself and the team.

'I don't want to destroy Max'

"We always want to have time to get used to everything, but I hope that I can very quickly start working well with the team and the car," Gasly told Ziggo Sport.

Gasly, 22, is a product of Red Bull's junior programme and currently drives for the junior team Toro Rosso.

"I've known Red Bull Racing for a while and have already been in the simulator. I don't want to destroy Max," Gasly added, referring to Red Bull's highly rated continuing Dutch driver.

We are both drivers and I will obviously give the best of myself. I want to be the best F1 driver on the grid and he wants the same thing.

It's a good thing to have someone at your side who is fast. It forces us to go beyond ourselves. We will have great moments together," Gasly said.
