ANDhe French pilot of Alpha Tauri, Pierre Gasly, is insistent on talking about his chances of taking the Red Bull seat from Sergio ‘Checo’ Prez, who has proven his worth to the Austrian team.

For Gasly, his place is to be fighting for the championship: “I see Charles in a Ferrari, I see Max in Red Bull, George in Mercedes, Lando in McLaren. I’ve been fighting these guys my whole career. I know this is where I belong and I want my chance to be in this position as well.”

Despite the fact that the results with the second team have not been the best, Gasly still believes that he has done the merits to recover the seat he had for a short time: “I feel ready. I feel like I’ve shown my potential. I have shown that I am capable of delivering once I have the tools I need in my hands to do so.”

“But then, I also understand them. It’s your decision, I’m fine with that. I think the important thing is that, at the end of the day, when you work with a team, a team works with a driver or a driver works with a team, there must be that common will and the desire to do it together. Whatever is needed. There has to be a will to do things together, to have the same goal in mind.”

“The driver I am today is much better than the one I was after a year. If they saw at that time that I was the right fit for the team after such a short time, So now there’s even more reason to think I’m ready to get that seat.” Yuki Tsunoda’s teammate added in an interview with Racefans.net.

“I think I’ve always said that, right now, my priority is to discuss with Red Bull and they will always have priority over others. Because I am very grateful for everything they have done in my career and I am aware that I would never be here without the support of Helmut and Red Bull in recent years.

For the tailcoat, losing the Red Bull seat was a product of misfortune: “I told Helmut last time that this is actually the longest relationship I’ve ever had in my life, you know? Nine years with Red Bull.” It’s been eight and a half years of success, fighting for top positions, having a very, very successful journey together. There were six months that didn’t work out for reasons we know.”

“But I’m sure there are going to be conversations and see what’s good. I know they’re happy with the way it works for them right now and that works for me too. Checo is doing very well there, so it makes sense. But then at the end of the day, I also need to look at my own career and what is best for me, what will give me the best chance of achieving my goals. personal, which is to be a world champion in the next few years,” concluded Gasly.
