If you were wondering whether Gasly would be a Red Bull yo-yo, wonder no more. Red Bull’s Alex Albon hasn’t had the easiest 2020 so far, leading many to wonder if Gasly would find his way back in Red Bull for 2021, having been promoted to the team from Toro Rosso (now AlphaTauri) in 2019 and dropped back down again less than half-way through that season. It appears, however, that AlphaTauri is keen to hold on to Gasly, now a Grand Prix winner with a storming drive at Monza this year.
Gasly said: “I’m extremely happy to continue with Scuderia AlphaTauri for another season! This year is going very well, and we are on track to have our most successful season in the team’s history.
"I feel we have a very strong relationship, we have managed to take every opportunity that’s come our way, the best one at the Italian Grand Prix. Winning my first Formula 1 race in Monza was a very special moment for me, and it was made extra sweet to deliver a second win in the team’s history, so I’m very proud of that.
"I’ll do my maximum to push the team and take all my responsibility to bring it as far forward as I can. I’m looking forward to next year’s challenge and continuing with AlphaTauri both as a premium fashion brand and a racing team, to keep performing as much as I can to achieve even more success in the future.”
Gasly is just the second driver to win with the team, as Sebastian Vettel took his and the team’s first victory at Monza in 2008.
