Hamilton praises Gasly: He's beating the team that dropped him

Lewis Hamilton has words of praise for Pierre Gasly. The AlphaTauri driver has had an excellent season so far and took his first victory in Formula 1. Hamilton sees Gasly taking revenge after being replaced by Alexander Albon at Red Bull Racing last year.

"It's a great win for him. It's so deserved," Hamilton wrote on his Instagram account. The six-time world champion admires the mentally strong Gasly. "He had such a challenging time when he was relegated by Red Bull. He's only gotten stronger and now he's beating the team that dropped him. I'm happy for you."

At Sky, Hamilton also had nice words for his French rival. "I've seen what he had to go through after being sidelined by a top team. Now he's beaten the top teams, it's just great to see him fight back," said the Brit.
