Pierre Gasly has revived his excellent form during the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix weekend. The Frenchman set fourth and third fastest times during the first two free practice sessions, boosting his confidence ahead of Saturday's qualifying session.

The AlphaTauri driver is having an excellent season and showed on Friday that he is still strong. In the first free practice the team made an immediate impression on the track and Gasly drove a convincing fourth time. A few hours later he was even faster than Max Verstappen.

Gasly looks forward with confidence

Afterwards, Gasly could do nothing but be satisfied with the first day. "I really like driving this track he said in the press release. "The corners are amazing and there’s a big rush of adrenalin when you’re out there. The whole day has been really good for us and I’m pretty happy with the pace so far."

"We know that on Saturday we usually do quite well, so I’m fairly confident for tomorrow, as I think we can still improve. I don’t feel quite as positive about the long runs though, so we still have some work to do to prepare for the race on Sunday."
