Verstappen congratulated Gasly by text message: Besides Mercedes, only we won

Pierre Gasly is still enjoying his victory in Monza one day after the race. After Sebastian Vettel in 2008, the AlphaTauri driver gave his team their second victory, then known as Torro Rosso. It was also the team's fiftieth Honda Grand Prix.

In the French newspaper L'Équipe, Gasly talks about what goes through him. "It's all very intense emotionally. I won my first Formula 1 race! I wanted to enjoy it on the podium, because in Brazil (Gasly's first podium, ed.) it was all too fast". After the race, Gasly was congratulated by his former teammate. "I received a text message from Max, Christian Horner and Helmut Marko. "This year Mercedes won all races, except one by Max and one by me. And that in the 50th race with Honda. Great!"

Immediately the question arises again whether Gasly will now return to Red Bull Racing, especially now that Albon is still dropping stitches. The Grand Prix winner leaves it somewhat in the middle. "I gave the team its second victory. The first was Sebastian Vettel. Every achievement deserves to be rewarded", said the Frenchman.
