Under his contract with AlphaTauri until the end of the 2023 F1 season, Pierre Gasly made his ambitions to bring single-seaters to the forefront in an interview with RaceFans.
Here’s the sea snakes of the paddock: Will Pierre Gasly finally return to Red Bull or get the steering wheel in another leading team?Now in its fifth year Formula 1, the Frenchman is no longer hiding his desire to drive a single-seater that can regularly win races. AlphaTauri has nothing to offer him unless he develops spectacularly, despite his unforgettable victory at Monza in 2020.
“I do it all because I want to fight up front. That’s why I wake up every day, why I train every day. That’s why I pay attention to my diet, sleep and recovery. Every detail is because I want to Fighting the pilots at the top,” he admitted in an interview racing fans.
“This is my place”
The 26-year-old from Rouen thoughtfully pointed out that his former lower-class opponent is now ahead of him on the grid: “I saw Charles [Leclerc] At Ferrari, Max [Verstappen] at red bull, george [Russell] at mercedes, lando [Norris] at McLaren. I’ve played against these guys my entire career. I know that’s my position, and I’d love to have the opportunity to be there. “
Gasly entered motorsport’s queen discipline at Toro Rosso in 2017 and was promoted to parent company Red Bull in 2019. The adventure was cut short due to poor grades. The Austrian team sent him back to Toro Rosso in support of Alexander Albon after just 12 races.
What kind of bathtub is OK?
With AlphaTauri linked until 2023, Pierre Gasly can hope Red Bull doesn’t extend Sergio Perez’s contract, possibly free at the end of the year. But the Mexicans are currently meeting expectations. At Mercedes, Ferrari and McLaren, at least until the end of next season, all places are confirmed. Scuderia has extended Carlos Sainz until 2024.
However, there are rumours that Daniel Ricciardo’s seat is in jeopardy. The 32-year-old Australian’s contract, still running for a year and a half, has disappointed McLaren. A young American driver, Colton Herta (22), raced in IndyCar and was considered a possible replacement.
