Gasly hopes Bahrain inspires success again after debut flop

Gasly hopes Bahrain inspires success again after debut flop

Pierre Gasly hopes returning to the scene of his finest Formula 1 performance to date at the Bahrain Grand Prix can help him get off on the right foot with Red Bull at the second time of asking after a frustrating debut in Australia.

Gasly finished outside of the points at Albert Park, having suffered a Q1 elimination in qualifying as a result of a strategy blunder and then getting stuck behind the Toro Rosso of Daniil Kvyat.

However, Sakhir was a much happier hunting ground for the Frenchman last year as he scored a fourth-place finish for Toro Rosso – Honda's best result of the hybrid era until teammate Max Verstappen scored a podium in Melbourne.

And Gasly takes confidence from last year's successes as he looks to rebound.

"Bahrain is one of my favourite races," he said. "I achieved my best result in Formula 1 there last year with fourth place, so for me Bahrain brings back a lot of emotion and it has a real positive energy.

"Not only that, but I also had my best qualifying there with sixth, and I started the race from fifth so I have good memories.

"Naturally, you relate places with the emotions you've experienced there so Bahrain sits top of my list as one of the best.

"I'm really looking forward to going back, this time with Aston Martin Red Bull Racing, and especially after a tricky weekend in Melbourne last time out.

"We've seen our car is competitive and I like the track in Bahrain so I can't wait to jump back in the car and get to work."
