AlphaTauri make announcement over Gasly's future

After much speculation about Pierre Gasly's future, his place on the 2023 grid has been confirmed.

AlphaTauri have confirmed that Pierre Gasly will remain with the team in 2023. There has been speculation over the Frenchman's next steps in recent months, though it became clear after Red Bull handed a contract extension to Sergio Perez until the end of 2024 that he would not be returning to the main team in the near future. However, Gasly's place at AlphaTauri for another year has now been made official.

Tost pleased to retain Gasly for another year

Gasly has been with AlphaTauri since 2017, barring his brief spell at Red Bull in 2019 before he returned to the sister squad midway through the season. Team boss Franz Tost is happy to have confirmed Gasly for 2023, and hopes that the team can provide him with a competitive car. "We are really pleased to confirm that Pierre stays with us in 2023," Tost said. "He is definitely in the group of the best and most competitive drivers in F1 and has proven his abilities during all the time he has spent with us. "Undoubtedly, Pierre can play a major role in the team having a successful season next year and it will be down to us to provide him with a competitive car, so that he can continue to deliver excellent results."
