Pierre Gasly says he is not surprised that Red Bull have decided to appoint Sergio Perez as ‘second driver’ alongside world champion Max Verstappen. The 26-year-old Frenchman has worked hard to secure a second place in Red Bull Racing, but Perez’s new two-year contract now coincides with the end of Gasly’s contract, which will last until the end of 2023.
In Baku, Gasly discussed the new situation, which also has consequences for his future life. In any case, Red Bull wants to keep the Alpha Tauri driver, but that seems to come to an end: “Their motive is very clear: they want to keep me. I have nothing to add to what has been said so far.” what one wants. I feel ready for action, but when things go wrong I will say more about it. “
Gasly insists he was not surprised by Perez’s announcement after Monaco, in which the 32-year-old Mexican won.
“I have known this for a while, it also makes sense for some things, I am not a fool, if you look at his profile, his success, the money he earns, if you look at what the second driver has. He’s doing a good season so for Red Bull it makes sense to continue like this. “In terms of my job, my aspirations, my ambitions, that’s another question,” added Gasly.
Future and other teams
Gasly has long been associated with the departure of the Red Bull camp and is temporarily linked with McLaren, Aston Martin and Alpine. “We are discussing my future with Helmut Marko. We need to understand what is best for all of us. We have a very good relationship – they have known me since I was a child. On the one hand, I understand But ” “
“My contract will continue until 2023 and after that I am ready to consider all options. With the help of Red Bull, I am ready to drive in another team, such as Alex Albon running for Williams now. I am ready to join Red Bull… But I do not want to get into details. I do not want to create headlines. “
