Pierre Gasly commented on his teammate, Yuki Tsunoda, and whether he can be the leader of the team. He made a big climb in a short time. “I think only time will tell whether he's got what it takes to lead the team. His path to F1 was kind of fast forward.
He went F4/F3/F2, and straight to F1 at quite a young age, with not so much experience. So I think only time will tell. But for sure he has improved massively this year. [I would] not be surprised to see him improving again next season.
I think he knows what he needs to work on, a bit of self-control. But yeah, he knows that and I mean he's got good people around him and I think this environment is also good for him to really develop as a better driver”.

Gasly on Tsunoda
Many commented on Yuki Tsunoda and his character. He has shown many times how focused he is on what he does, but also that he is a person with a strong character. “He doesn't live that far from my house in Milan so I'm sure we will get some more time off season to catch up,” he explained.
“There is no bullshit with Yuki and that's one thing I really appreciate, everything which goes through his mind is out of his mouth in a flash of light. “He is a very unique character, he's got a great sense of humour, no filter, which can be quite surprising at times.
He's a great human being. “I really enjoyed these last two years, also seeing him evolve within the team, also as a person I think he has developed quite a lot, and definitely someone I appreciate and I happily call a friend."
