Gasly open to long AlphaTauri run: Why not?

Pierre Gasly has established himself as a real threat in the middle of the pack since returning to AlphaTauri, then Toro Rosso, back in 2019. As a result the Frenchman appears open to staying with the Faenza-based team for the foreseeable future.

Having claimed his maiden F1 victory with the team, Pierre Gasly won't rule out a long stay with AlphaTauri should they develop a car that allows him to challenge for wins and championships.

The Frenchman has found a home with the Faenza-based team since his return following a turbulent time with Red Bull in 2019 that saw him dropped midway through the season. Since then both Gasly and AlphaTauri have made their way up the grid, opening the door for a potential long-term working relationship.

"Yeah, why not?" Gasly told RacingNews365.com on whether he'd consider remaining with the team for years. "At the end of the day, my target in F1 is very clear. I just want to fight for wins and championships.

"I'm in the sport and I'm working every day, I'm training every day to one day be in a position that I can fight for the world championship. If this project works out and puts us in a position where we can be fighting, then why not?

"I don't see a problem."

Gasly's time at AlphaTauri so far has seen him finish on the podium twice, the most famous of which was last season's victory at the Italian Grand Prix. The Frenchman won in rather unusual circumstances, as he benefitted from two safety cars and a Lewis Hamilton penalty after the Mercedes driver came into the pits when it was closed.

The AlphaTauri man believes incidents like that are part of the sport, though he believes he has what it takes to win a clean race - so long as he has a car fast enough to challenge.

"Yeah, with a car that is fast enough to challenge for it [wins] then for sure," Gasly added. "Race incidents are part of the sport otherwise, in all honesty, Lewis would win every day.

"At the end of the day the reality is that there are differences between the cars and if there are no unexpected events in a race then it will be boring. That's why people watch F1 racing.

"Obviously Mercedes had their issues [at Monza] but there are a lot of people that could have won that race. Carlos [Sainz], Lando [Norris], [Valtteri] Bottas came back and was P6 in the middle of the race, and no one did it. I think we fully deserved it."

Formula 1 are set to introduce sweeping regulation changes in 2022 in an attempt to bring the grid closer together. While Gasly is letting the AlphaTauri designers do their work, he's excited to see how the new rules will impact the pecking order.

"I spoke with the designers and it's obviously a big challenge for them because they are starting from a new page," Gasly noted. "It takes a lot of work, they need to explore a lot of things.

"It can be a great opportunity to find something that works that others don't find, but at the same time you have a big risk. At the moment, I'm just letting them do their work and as a driver, I can't have a big input.

"Obviously, I try to motivate them as much as I can and, with the results, that's the main source of motivation for the guys back in the factory. It's clearly a big challenge for all the teams and it's impossible to say who's going to be on top at the start of the season. It's going to be quite exciting to see who finds the sweet spot."
