Tost happy with Gasly: 'Has consistently performed very well'

Pierre Gasly will stay on as an AlphaTauri driver in 2021, which is a positive development for Franz Tost. The AlphaTauri team boss had to deal with young talent, but can now rely on the talented Gasly.

Over the years, Tost's team has continued to develop. First as Toro Rosso and since this year as AlphaTauri. The team will always be the little brother of Red Bull Racing, but in recent years Tost gets more and more drivers in his team who have some more experience. He enjoys the fact that Gasly can stay on.

Tost happy with Gasly

‘’I’m delighted that Pierre will remain with us for the 2021 season. He has been part of the Red Bull driver pool for many years and I hope he will remain in the Red Bull family for many seasons ahead. Since he came back to the team last year, he consistently showed extremely good performances achieving two podiums, with a second place in Brazil in 2019 and a win at the team’s home race at this year’s Italian Grand Prix," Tost said in the team statement.

‘’Pierre has proven to be highly competitive also thanks to his great race craft, extracting the car’s potential at every race and giving valuable feedback to his engineers. He is mentally very strong, he is always motivated and when he sets a goal he gives it his all to achieve it. I’m looking forward to extending this cooperation and having a successful 2021 season together," adds the Austrian.
