Red Bull is poised to decide Pierre Gasly's 2019 replacement at Toro Rosso in the coming days.

Red Bull's once thriving pool of young talent is no longer as strong, but it is strongly rumoured that Dan Ticktum, a 19-year-old F3 driver, is the favourite to join Toro Rosso.

"We want to decide the replacement for Gasly by Monza," Marko said.
