Gasly clarifies his comment on "the details of the contract"

Motorsport.com revealed last week at Spa-Francorchamps that AlphaTauri driver Pierre Gasly had emerged as a possible candidate for Fernando Alonso’s vacant seat at Alpine from the 2023 Formula 1 season following his move to Aston Martin. .

Despite the fact that the Frenchman had already been announced as a driver for the Faenza team for next year and has a current contract with the Italians, it seems that there is interest from Enstone to release the Frenchman from his commitments.

In a small video that appeared on Ferrari’s social networks, Pierre Gasly could be seen walking with Charles Leclerc and George Russell at the drivers’ parade in Belgium, and could be heard: “I’m still working on the final details of the contract.”

Many fans interpreted it to be related to the talks with Alpine, but Pierre Gasly denied it on the Thursday before the Dutch Grand Prix: “If they had any idea what we were talking about, they would probably laugh.”

“I can guarantee you that it was nothing related to Formula 1,” said the Frenchman, who assured that Russell was commenting on “marriage or a wedding thing” that “you cannot imagine and that it was not related to cars.” .

In the recording, the Brit can be heard saying the word “married” before Gasly ‘s comments, who admitted that some of his friends had sent him the video and that he was “rather amused” and was impressed by how you can change a topic, calling it “fun”.

However, the still Faenza rider was shy when talking about the option of going to Alpine, and stated that “nothing had changed” since Spa: “I said it last week, for next year I have a contract with AlphaTauri Everyone is aware of the status of my deal. For now, nothing has changed.”

Asked by Motorsport.com if Red Bull had spoken to him about the talks, he replied: “I don’t feel like commenting on anything at the moment. I’m with AlphaTauri, I’m doing my best as long as I’m driving for this team.”

“They gave me my first seat in Formula 1, they gave me my first victory,” he said. “For now, I don’t feel like commenting on anything, as long as I drive for this team I will always give my 110%.”

Pierre Gasly said that the rumors about his future “didn’t affect or bother”, and that he is used to being in the spotlight of the press: “That’s nothing compared to some of the things I had to face at the beginning of my race”.

“You’re always in the press if it’s for good things, bad things, even some very funny conversation stories are made up and you’re trending on TikTok for no reason,” said the Frenchman. “Nothing happens, it’s part of being a Formula 1 driver.”

The one from AlphaTauri has a great connection with the Italians, since he joined them in 2017 to make his debut in the highest category of motorsport, in addition to achieving the second victory for the team in 12 years at Monza in 2020 and is the most points you have scored in your history.

However, he said that considerations for his future were “only performance-driven”: “We only have one track record, and you have to make the best of it, in the end we sacrifice, we work hard for one goal, to be the best.”

“That performance factor will always take precedence over the emotional side that you have, obviously,” he said. “I’m an emotional person, I feel like I connect with people. That’s a very important part for me, but the competitive mentality that you have as a Formula 1 driver is on another level.”
