In addition to the results in qualifying, Pierre Gasly he would like to start reaping the fruits of his work on Sundays as well. After the podium in Baku, the AlphaTauri driver did not get the results he hoped for from the French-Austrian hat-trick between Paul Ricard and Red Bull Ring. Much more could have been done especially on this last track, instead between bad luck and wrong strategy Gasly collected two points in two weeks. That’s why the Frenchman is particularly motivated ahead of Silverstone.
Rosberg: “Gasly a risk for Red Bull”
Gasly and the market: “There is interest in me, I’ll talk to Marko”
“Looking back at the triple-header, qualifying went well and on all three occasions I managed to get into Q3. So, the Saturday performances have always been excellent and I was pleased to be able to make a good impression in France, in front of my audience. The Austrian GP also ended well, even if it wasn’t easy. On the other hand, the Styrian GP ended immediately for me, but overall we are doing a good team work, the car is performing well and everything seems to be going well: I hope we can continue like this at Silverstone. The biggest news of this weekend will be the race on Saturday, this means that we will only have a free practice session to find the ideal set-up of the car before qualifying. This is an important change and it will be even more important to start with a good base set-up. The new format will give more importance to the car in race setting and we know that is where we have to work the most“He told AlphaTauri official channels.
“I think, in general, we always went beyond expectations in qualifying, but then in the race we are more or less where we should be. Overall it should be fine, because we saw that in Austria – with a different strategy – we crossed the line four or five seconds from the Top 5. So even if we have some work to do for the race, we are still in the fray. We worked a lot together with the engineers and I went to the simulator to look at all the possible scenarios of the Sprint Qualifying Race. It should be fun. We will also have the new Pirelli tires: they were introduced mainly for safety and from what I experienced, trying them in Austria, I think there won’t be big differences. I love Silverstone, is one of my favorite tracks, especially the passage over Maggots and Becketts, one of the most exciting sequences of the season. Overtaking here is a bit more difficult, but last year I managed to do some nice maneuvers, like the one in the fight with Seb (Vettel) on the outside, at the right-hand corner before the chicane”Concluded Gasly.
