Gasly remains optimistic: 'Nevertheless, I am ready for it'

The Formula 1 drivers are preparing for one more race this weekend, before they can go on holiday for a couple of weeks. Pierre Gasly hopes to end the first half of the season on a high note with AlphaTauri.

At the start of the season AlphaTauri hoped to battle it out with Ferrari and McLaren for the world championship, but thanks to the strong performances of Charles Leclerc and Lando Norris this is a hopeless task for the time being. It doesn't mean Gasly has given up hope though.

Gasly is both optimistic and realistic in the AlphaTauri press release. "As for our chances, we've seen in the last few races that McLaren and Ferrari have made a big step forward. We are fighting with Alpine and Aston Martin for the fifth place in the championship and that is the goal we have to aim for", the Frenchman stated.

A physical challenge for Gasly

The driver is looking forward to the Hungary circuit which demands a lot from the teams. "Of course, it's always a physical challenge too, because you don't have time to rest during the lap. Moreover, it looks like another very hot weekend given the heat at the moment in Europe. Nevertheless, I am ready for it."
