AlphaTauri Announce Pierre Gasly’s Contract Extension With The Team – WTF1

AlphaTauri Announce Pierre Gasly’s Contract Extension With The Team

It’s not exactly been kept a top-secret piece of information, with Pierre Gasly’s team boss confirming the rumour last weekend in Canada. However, it’s now official that Gasly will be sticking with the AlphaTauri squad for 2023.

We’re not shocked by the news, as the young Frenchman didn’t have too many options for next year. With Max Verstappen at Red Bull until the end of 2028 and Sergio Perez signing a contract extension until 2024 the other week, there wasn’t an opportunity for another promotion back to the top team.

“I have been with this team for five years now, and I am proud of the journey we’ve been through together and the progress we have made,” Gasly said about the announcement.

“I’m happy to remain with my Scuderia AlphaTauri team next season. This year’s new regulations have created new challenges for us, and being able to plan our development with the team for the next 18 months is a good working basis for the future.”

Last season Pierre had a stunning year with the team, proving himself to be one of the stars of the future with some mega impressive qualifying performances. Unfortunately, this season’s been a bit of a bumpy ride for the team so far, with fifth in Azerbaijan one of few highlights.

He’ll be hoping the team can iron out their issues and provide a much stronger set-up for next year.

And if they can’t? Well, there are some pretty big seats up for grabs in 2024, which could see him move away from the Red Bull family and find his feet elsewhere 👀

Was this the right call from Pierre? Let us know in the comments below.
