In the press conference reserved for the Team Principals held in Montreal, the scene of the last Canadian Formula 1 Grand Prix, Franz Tost expressed no doubts about Pierre Gasly’s stay in Faenza, specifying how the Frenchman is a fundamental pawn for the technical and sporting growth of the Scuderia.
Despite the many market rumors circulated in recent weeks, including that of a possible arrival of the transalpine in Woking to replace Daniel Ricciardo, the Austrian manager wanted to “lock down” his “top” driver, specifying how the team is doing the maximum to give him a competitive car capable of battling for the top positions of the grid.
“It will be with us also in 2023, I confirm it one hundred percent”, stated the Team Principal of the Faenza Scuderia. “There were reliability problems that obviously didn’t depend on him, but on team mistakes. I am happy that in Baku he has shown how strong he is. He has the ability to stay ahead and it is only up to the team to give him a truly competitive car and that he knows how to fight for the top positions of the grid ”.
