Pierre Gasly: ​​I really wanted to go up to the podium

In Baku, Pierre Gasly climbed to the podium for the third time in his career and said that the race was difficult due to problems with the power plant.

Pierre Gasly: ​​“It’s incredible! I do not even know what to say. Crazy race, especially the last two laps – they were very intense. The car behaved superbly all weekend. In every session we showed excellent speed. In qualifying, everything went just superb. I didn’t know if it would be possible to keep the fourth place in the race or even fight for the podium. But in the end it worked out. During my career in Formula 1 I have already finished first and second, and now third. It’s incredible that we won the podium this weekend.

I had a tense fight with Charles Leclair … I had a hard time due to a problem with the power plant – I was losing a lot of power on the straight. In the middle of the race, Sebastian managed to get ahead of me, and I knew that the last laps would be very difficult, because Charles was driving behind me. But I tried to hold my position. I really wanted to go up to the podium. It’s great that we had such a successful weekend. We have earned a lot of points, so I am very pleased. Yuki also performed well. Overall a fantastic job. I hope we will celebrate it together tonight. “
