According to his team boss, it sounds like Pierre Gasly isn’t going anywhere anytime soon! During Saturday’s press conference, Franz Tost confirmed to the media that Pierre would 100% race for the AlphaTauri team next year.
With Sergio Perez extending his deal with Red Bull until the end of 2024 recently and Max Verstappen entering into a contract with the team until the end of 2028, it appeared that the chance of another promotion to Red Bull is now entirely over.
“He is showing fantastic performance,” Tost expressed.
“Unfortunately, at the beginning of the season [he suffered] with a lot of reliability issues – for example, in Bahrain when the battery caught fire.
“Then there were some other reliability issues that were not his fault, it was coming from the team. I am really happy now that at least in Baku we could show how good he is.”
We think this news is very much ‘liked by Pierre Gasly’. Sorry, we’ll see ourselves out.
