Gasly assess challenge ahead in Mexico

Racing returns this weekend as the gird head to Mexico and Toro Rosso will be looking to finish the season strongly to finish as high as possible in the constructors' championship, which they are currently sixth in.

Pierre Gasly has had a largely mixed season which included the switch from Aston Martin Red Bull Racing and is currently placed seventh in the drivers' standings with just four races remaining.

"The whole circuit has a big crowd and that’s great to see. As for the track, it’s quite slow with plenty of slow corners, but then you have the esses section in the middle of the track, which is what I prefer because the faster it is the more I like it, " Gasly said in Toro Rosso's race preview.

"During the race, it can get quite busy, especially at the first corner where you can fight other cars. I’ve never had much luck there, as I had to take engine penalties which dropped me down the grid, although last year I came from the back row to finish tenth and score a point.”

The Frenchman finished in tenth place at the Mexican Grand Prix last season and will be looking for a strong finish to the season at Toro Rosso.
