“Honestly I don’t want to waste any time with this kind of bullshit,” said Gasly in the build-up to the Canadian Grand Prix. “I have more important things to take care of, like my job, my family, my friends.
“For me bullshit like this is just bad journalism. I don’t want to comment any more about this.”
Hulkenberg also dismissed being linked to Red Bull, calling it “made up” and basically fake news”, and joked that it “felt great for my ego”.
Gasly is sixth in the drivers’ championship with a best result of fifth for Red Bull this season.
He has less than half the points of Max Verstappen and has trailed his podium-finishing teammate at every grand prix.
That has given the Frenchman confidence he will be given time to improve his form.
“I still feel I’m far from getting the full potential of myself at the moment. There are still things I’m not feeling fully comfortable with. But from race to race I can see and I can feel things are getting better.”
Asked about conversations with Marko since the start of the year, Gasly said: “It’s been good.
“It’s been really supportive and he sees and he knows everything that happens inside the team. I think it has been really good so far.”
