AlphaTauri Formula 1 driver Pierre Gasly spoke about his future and options. "I think you've got to be open. There's got to be a conversation, obviously with Red Bull, and they'll be the first ones to know what's the situation," he told Motorsport.com.
"But of course, it's also the first time in my career that I actually get the options of deciding what's going to happen. It's still early, we're still mid-2022. At the right moment, we'll assess what are the best options for the future."
Pierre Gasly: I feel way more complete
Gasly feels like he has improved a lot and he seems to be the leader of his team. "Yeah, yeah. I'm way more complete," the 26-year-old explained. "I think it's a sport where, personally, I feel way more complete than I was when I arrived in the sport, because it's a complex sport.
"It's not only about driving. It's about driving the team in the direction you want, it's about getting the people working together towards the same goal, motivating everyone because it's tough. You see people mentally are drained after a couple of races from all the travelling, all the work they are doing."
Gasly is motivated like never before and wants to win. "Being a leader, it's not only about driving and being fast on the race track. It's about leading the team and bringing that energy, the mentality and the work ethic that you set to yourself to the rest of your crew to extract the best of the package that you've got.
That's what I'm trying to do. At the end of the day, the difference is I want to be in a place that can give me the opportunity to be competitive. That's really what is most important for me, to have a package that will allow me to display my skills and fight for the top, because that's my only motivation in this sport, is to fight for the win, for the podiums, and be at the front of the grid."
