Gasly ready to push in Austria this weekend

Red Bull Racing driver Pierre Gasly has admitted he is "ready to push" this weekend, as the teams prepare for the first back-to-back races of the season at the Red Bull Ring.

Gasly grabbed a late point in France to salvage something from a disappointing day at Paul Ricard, and now the Frenchman is excited to get back into action this weekend.

The Red Bull driver isn't concerned about potential fatigue and is instead looking forward to the challenge of two races in seven days.

"Austria is the first back-to-back race of the season, which for me is the best part of the year because I enjoy racing so much," Gasly explained. "Going from one weekend to the other and racing the whole time is what makes me happy."

Gasly also explained how, with this being Red Bull's home race in Austria, it becomes extra special - with more of the team's fans getting to witness their idols live at the circuit.

"As a Red Bull driver, racing at the Austrian Grand Prix is something really special and I'm looking forward to seeing all the fans over the weekend," Gasly continued. "The track has been quite good for Red Bull in the past and we're ready to push for the best result we can."
