Now, as Carlos Sainz also says, Pierre Gasly it can no longer be considered a surprise. The continuity of performance of the Frenchman and his AlphaTauri – since that of the Japanese Tsunoda is always dispersed in the rear – is now a fact. The Rouen native also performed well in qualifying on Friday of this third weekend of the season with the Sprint Race, in the setting of Sao Paulo. As had happened in Mexico, the former Red Bull driver was the fastest ‘of the others’, behind Mercedes and Red Bull.
His fifth time, ahead of Ferrari and McLaren, he is worth, for now, the third row. If things remained like this also in tomorrow’s sprint race, the doors of the second row would open for him on Sunday, thanks to Hamilton’s penalty. But it is still too early to think about it, also because Gasly himself admitted that he suffered more than what we saw on this first day at Interlagos.
“This morning was difficult for me – commented the transalpine pilot to the microphones of Sky Sport F1, once Q3 is over – I didn’t feel good in the car. It always gets difficult on Sprint Race weekends, with qualifying on Friday. I am very happy, I really did a beautiful ride, perhaps the best of the season “. In view of tomorrow’s mini-race, however, even Gasly does not want to take too many risks. “For us it is always difficult with the Sprint – he concluded, mindful of what happened in Monza – but if there is an opportunity to do well we will exploit it. Lewis is also there with the penalty on Sunday, we’ll see what we can do tomorrow “.
