Franz Tost will help Pierre Gasly bring all the ingredients back together

Pierre Gasly has had a tough season after being released from Red Bull back down to Toro Rosso. Franz Tost is confident that he can rebuild the Frenchman and get his confidence back at the junior team. 

“If a driver returns from Red Bull to Toro Rosso, then he is in shock and demotivated. He no longer has any confidence,” Tost says about the Pierre Gasly situation to the official Formula 1 website“It is the task of the team and me to support him, to help bring all the necessary ingredients back together. Indeed, they had it, since Red Bull took them from us at a certain moment for a reason."

Gasly's confidence would have dipped but he has performed well for Toro Rosso in his return. 

"Virtually nothing has changed: His overall was just ready as it only took a few months," the Italian jokes. After moving back to Toro Rosso Gasly immediately scored points and Tost is confident that he will have success with the team. 

“He came to the factory as if he had been there the day before. He worked well together from the first moment and we fully trust each other. I know for sure that he will regain his confidence in not too long."

Gasly will hope to rebuild himself over the next few races and prove that he is still a top driver who has a bright future ahead of him.
