A year ago it looked like the world was at Pierre Gasly’s feet. What a 12 months it has been.
After 12 Grands Prix as Max Verstappen’s teammate at Red Bull Racing, Gasly was demoted to what was then Toro Rosso. It looked like a mortal blow, though it should be pointed out that the same move a few years earlier did not end Daniil Kvyat’s career.
So imagine how Gasly felt at the penultimate race of the 2019 season when he ducked as low as he could in the cockpit, to minimise drag, so he could hold off Lewis Hamilton in the final dash to the chequered flag - for second place!
Gasly rode his luck in Brazil that day, but he drove brilliantly.
AlphaTauri looks like the ideal place to reset and shock a few Formula 1® big names, and Gasly can be a major part of that.
