The future holds a range of opportunities for the Frenchman but which path will Pierre Gasly take?.
Gasly is signed to a Red Bull contract until the end of 2023 , he has until the end of this season and next to decide which team he wants to continue his formula 1 career with.
Pierre Gasly is confirmed to be racing for the AlphaTauri team in the 2023 season as disclosed by Franz Tost , the current team principal of the Scuderia AlphaTauri team. But what team will he go to after the season?.
Gasly has spent all of his Formula 1 career in a Red Bull based environment since debuting in the championship in late 2017.
In 2017 Pierre Gasly drove for the team Toro Rosso which is now known as AlphaTauri. He moved to Red Bull Racing in 2019 before moving back to Toro Rosso the same year. Since 2020 Pierre Gasly has been racing for AlphaTauri.
Pierre Gasly’s options
There are many rumours of Gasly joining the Mclaren team after the 2023 season. Australian driver Daniel Riccardo does not seem to be performing up to the Mclarens standards which could lead to him being dropped by the team, opening up a chance for Gasly to compete with a better established team again.
There are even talks of Pierre Gasly joining the Mercedes team when Lewis Hamilton, 7 time world champion, decides to retire.
With Sergio Perez’ contract renewal, Pierre Gasly’s hopes of driving for the Red Bull team again are out of the window.
Many believe the AlphaTauri driver will continue to drive for his current team.
However Gasly feels that the team aren’t the best option for him while making ’too many mistakes’ as we saw in the Monaco Grand Prix qualifying.
On the 12th of June, before the Azerbaijan Grand Prix , Pierre Gasly was seen with the current Red Bull GmbH Formula 1 teams advisor: Helmut Marko.
The two were seen sat discussing what is yet to be announced. Could this be about a contract renewal or whether Gasly will end up with a new team after the 2023 season?.
Gasly’s team mate Yuki Tsunoda was also seen sat with Marko the same day.
Pierre Gasly is currently performing very well with the recent result of P5 in the Baku Grand Prix.
Gasly has also been able to stay within the top 10 of the practise runs for the Montreal Grand Prix.
In practise 3 he was even able to get P2! The Frenchman is performing up to standards, maybe in the hopes of proving himself to a better team.
