Pierre Gasly believes he deserved a second chance at Red Bull next year. The Frenchman claims that he has improved a lot this season as a driver and that he is at a better level than when he was in the first team in 2019. Gasly will remain at AlphaTauri next season as Red Bull wanted to keep Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez as official drivers.
The Frenchman believes that he deserved a second chance in the first team, but that will not happen in the first season of the new era of Formula 1, but he will have to wait for the decision of the Austrian team for 2023.
Pierre sees himself as a much more experienced driver who is now at a level higher than he was in 2019, the year Red Bull decided to promote the Frenchman to the first team after Daniel Ricciardo moved to Renault. However, his bosses did not feel he lived up to expectations and had to return to Toro Rosso.
His goal is to return to the top team again. “I think I had a very good performance this season, better than in 2018 when I got a chance at Red Bull." "This time, since I’m on a better level, with more experience, I think I deserve better.
The Red Bull decision will not stop my motivation, and my goal is to get there again, ”Gasly admitted.
The driver of AlphaTauri notes that his goal is to have a car with which he will fight for victories and podiums every weekend, and Red Bull is one of the best destinations for that Gasly respects Red Bull's decision to keep Verstappen and Perez but makes it clear that he will not give up the search for his goal, which is to return to the Austrian team.
“I want to be in a car that allows me to fight for victories and podiums, that has always been my goal and what I work for every morning." "I am focused on myself and I want to be a better driver for new race victories.
That is my goal, ”he added. “They (Red Bull) made their decision and I am happy for the year they have had so far. I will keep pushing to get a new opportunity in the future. That's what I want, to fight for the world champion, "concluded Pierre Gasly.
Given the form he is in, he has obviously progressed, but the question is whether that will be enough for Red Bull and whether he will be in the same form for a year, two
