Gasly support key to AlphaTauri success

AlphaTauri team principal Franz Tost believes the support the team has given to Pierre Gasly has allowed the Frenchman to shine in F1.

Gasly has taken three podiums since his return to the Faenza-based team including his maiden victory at last year's Italian Grand Prix, with his form continuing into this term.

The 25-year-old told GPFans Global that the stability of staying with the same team for a second full season had helped him to produce his best form.

"It's very, very important that the driver feels well, that the driver enjoys being in the team, that he feels that he is being supported, that this is the case at Scuderia AlphaTauri," Tost told GPFans Global.

"This is also an important pillar as to why Pierre has shown such good performance."

AlphaTauri must wait until 2023 to compete

The new F1 regulations for 2022 offers teams an opportunity to join Mercedes and Red Bull at the front of the field.

Tost warned, however, that the big teams still hold an advantage into next season with his team unable to realistically challenge util 2023 and beyond.

"Of course, this is the target, but I doubt whether it will be the case next year because the top teams had an advantage, keeping more people in there until June. We will see now how this works," he explained.

"This cost cap will really start to count from 2023 onwards because then all the teams should really be on the same level [in terms] of resources and, of course, money. Then it depends on which team works the most efficiently."
