Pierre Gasly

Gasly not convinced by use of driver coaches in F1

Whilst coaches are commonly used in various sports, they are not often seen in Formula 1. Pierre Gasly for one does not believe that a driver coach would help him to improve his driving.

Pierre Gasly is not convinced that using a driver coach would be beneficial in Formula 1.

Whilst coaching is commonly used in a wide variety of sports - including other categories of motorsport such as IndyCar and MotoGP - it is not often seen in F1. Gasly for one is not keen on the idea of using a driver coach, as he believes that it is down to the driver to understand what they need to do to improve their performance.

"You can work on specific areas to really fine tune certain things," Gasly told RacingNews365.com. "But ultimately as a driver you feel what you need to go faster.

"When I finish a lap I don't need someone to tell me where it could have been better, if there was one corner where it could have been better. I felt that. I either understand it or maybe over pushed it there, and then I shall fix that area.

"I think as the driver you should feel these things yourself, otherwise it means you're lacking something."

Whilst Gasly can acknowledge the benefits of working with someone else to reflect on how he could improve, the AlphaTauri driver still feels that it is ultimately down to him.

"If a golfer hits a ball, he knows if he hit it properly or if something went wrong," Gasly explained. "And I think that's a similar thing as a driver, you feel what was right or what was wrong.

"Afterward, after the competition, you can look back and see, okay there I made the wrong decision. There I could have been better, there I could have taken a better line.

"In this area, afterward, for sure there is work to do. And that's what I do, I look at videos with my trainer and try to find areas where [I can ask] why did I take this decision? Why did I try to attack here? Why didn't I wait one corner, why didn't I do it before?

"This is just conversation that also makes you understand certain things, makes you realise certain things when you have an external eye.

"But I will not call that person I have this conversation with a driver coach, for example."
