Gasly season start 'probably my best in F1'

Gasly season start 'probably my best in F1'

Pierre Gasly has declared the current Formula 1 campaign his "best start to a season" in the sport.

After 11 races, Gasly has 50 points and sits eighth in the championship. Both of these statistics the Frenchman has bettered in his three previous full seasons in the sport.

In 2019 and '20, Gasly scored 55 and 53 points respectively and in the former, whilst racing with Red Bull, he was sixth in the championship at this stage.

For the Frenchman, however, his efforts this season are his best to date.

“I think it is probably the best start of the season I have ever had in Formula 1," explained Gasly.

"I think it was really successful. I obviously managed to take care of one podium in Baku already this year which was the highlight of these first races I think.

“We have had great Saturdays, great qualifying putting the car in Q3 for most of the races and this was a great achievement.

“I think on Sundays, we started not as great and I think we have made progress and managed to fight some pretty fast cars, sometimes the McLarens, sometimes the Ferraris."

Adding further enjoyment to his efforts is the championship fight for fifth, a position Gasly reflected the team has never achieved. “We can see our battle in the championship shaping up race after race with Aston [Martin] and Alpine," he added.

“We are fighting for fifth position in the constructors’ championship which is something that has never happened for the team so it shows we are having a good year and it is one of my personal targets to bring this fifth position to these guys.

“This will be a first and I must say it is a pretty exciting season so far for us.”
