Tost clear: The team will certainly not be celebrating tonight

AlphaTauri had a great weekend in Monza. As an Italian team, they managed to win, after Pierre Gasly managed to keep Carlos Sainz behind him on the final lap. The team will have a big party, although Franz Tost says there will be a little party!

"The team did a fantastic job and Pierre drove really great. As of Friday Pierre was already strong, with a fourth and sixth place. We were lucky with the red flag. I have to say that Gasly was really strong because he didn't make any mistakes," Tost explained to Sky Sports.

No party for AlphaTauri

"Carlos was stronger in the first sector and we were faster in the second. That's why he couldn't get close in Parabolica. We made the decision ourselves to drive with more wing."

The question will now arise again as to whether Gasly is ready to step up to Red Bull Racing.

"If Pierre leaves us it will be a compliment to the team. I'm pretty optimistic he'll stay here," said Tost. 

When asked if the team is going to celebrate tonight, Tost was clear. "Nothing is going to happen tonight. The guys from the team have to clean everything up and get ready to race again next week in Mugello."
