How Gasly has learned from Red Bull 'mistakes' at Alpine

Pierre Gasly begins a new chapter of his career at Alpine in 2023, four years on from his ill-fated stint at Red Bull. The Frenchman feels that his past experience of moving to a bigger team has proved useful, despite not working out well.

Pierre Gasly feels that his brief stint at Red Bull has taught him how to avoid "similar mistakes" at Alpine. Gasly has signed a multi-year deal with the French squad, marking his first big change of team since his move to Red Bull in 2019. The Frenchman's time at the Milton Keynes-based outfit came to a premature end when he was demoted back to the then-called Toro Rosso before the season was over. Despite this, Gasly believes that the lessons he learned in his time with Red Bull have proved useful for his switch to Alpine. "As much as I wish this would have never happened, I think it's been definitely a very useful and positive experience," Gasly told media, including RacingNews365.com , of his Red Bull stint. "[It has been helpful in] not repeating the similar mistakes, and just being a lot more aware of the requirements [of] moving to a new team."

Gasly 'hugely impressed' at Alpine

While Gasly's move to Alpine from AlphaTauri marks a big change, the one-time race winner is already feeling comfortable in his new environment. "So far I've been hugely impressed and very happy in the way that I've been welcomed into the team, and [the] behaviours and treatments so far inside the team," he explained. "I'm feeling very comfortable already. [It's] still a new environment. "It's only been really two months that I'm an Alpine driver, but mostly I'm feeling very good inside the team and very ready to get the season started."
