Gasly: ​​Only Verstappen and Hamilton are better than me

Pierre Gasly is considered – and rightly so – one of the best current drivers in Formula 1, with the Frenchman making excellent appearances in 2021 and collecting 110 points, finishing in 9th place in the drivers’ championship.

In a recent interview, Gasly said that he is happy, both for himself and for AlphaTauri, for what they achieved in 2021 and for the development they showed last year. As he said:

I am very happy with the progress. We had a great season in 2020 and in 2021 we were able to show more. Unfortunately we lost the victory, but we had a lot of results that showed stability. In the qualifiers we were 16 times in the top 6. I think I am the third best driver after Max [Verstappen] and Lewis [Hamilton].

In 2022, Gasly considers that he will be even “stronger”, even saying that he is better than Albon and Perez, since his wish is to be in Red Bull so that he can fight for the championship:

My desire and will to play for the championship is very strong. I’m in F1 to fight for the top. This motivates me to keep improving.

If I compare myself to those who had the opportunity in a position at Red Bull [Alex Albon και Sergio Perez], based on numbers and results, I have surpassed them all, but I do not receive recognition and reward for it. This is hard to swallow.

Gasly drove for a few races in 2017 on behalf of Toro Rosso, as well as for the entire 2018 season. In 2019 he replaced Daniel Ricciardo who went to Renault at Red Bull, but a few races later he was replaced by Alex Albon.

Gasly climbed to second place on the podium in the Brazilian GP in 2019, took the victory in Monza in the Italian GP in 2020 and finished third in the GP of Azerbaijan in 2021.

What do you believe; Should Gasly be given the chance to be back at Red Bull or any other team that will allow him to fight for the league?
