Albon is seriously quick. High-rated by his peers too. He will flourish. I suppose the only expectation is "do better than Gasly", which he should achieve.
Gasly is a tougher cookie than Kvyat Mk.1, and probably faster than Kvyat Mk.2, so I think he will remain strong overall.
It would be quite bizarre if Kvyat comes out of this again looking like the weakest member of the Red Bull family, despite having nothing to do with this recent change!
Well, imo. he has. He is passed for the seat, while in post race podium finish was openly advocating for it.
". This year I feel more mature, my head is cooler, and I’m readier to fight on top, so I think I proved that today to myself and everyone around here. I hope this will become a habit soon!"

This could lead towards mental disappointment.
But, then again, he himself contacted Marko for the STR seat, so he wanted to drive for STR himself (after their combined history). He even could be on a one year deal and having a new (Haas possible imo.) for next year and onward.
