"I do hope we can see something a bit similar to MotoGP where my good friend Fabio Quartararo, for example, is in a private team that can fight for championships," said Italian Grand Prix winner Gasly.
"Scoring some pole positions and winning some races, I think that will be amazing if we can see something similar in Formula 1."
Reflecting on a more realistic target for the short-term, he added: "I think AlphaTauri can be a top-10 contender on a regular basis, for sure.
"I think the team is growing and they have good ambitions. But I think we should not underestimate the knowledge all the top teams have developed over the last few years, all the facilities they have built because it’s something they have already and we don’t have.
"Even if we develop, and the cost cap we use to make it a bit more equal between everybody, I think it’s still going to take some years, it’s not a short-term project, it’s a longer one.
"I’m quite optimistic in [that] I think the team is going to get stronger relative to the others. How far is too early to say. But I will be surprised if, from 2022, we already see the top teams mixed within the midfield teams at the moment."
