Over the years, the animosity between F1 teammates has steadily come down amidst the arrival of new-age racing drivers. It all started with Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz in 2019, who were arguably the best pair in over a decade. Interestingly, there is quite a similar kind of relationship brewing at AlphaTauri too.

Pierre Gasly found himself in a trough after falling back from Red Bull to AlphaTauri (then, Toro Rosso). And he had Daniil Kvyat for company, but the duo hardly spent time with each other off the track. But, now, the Frenchman has found himself a buddy in Yuki Tsunoda.

The young Japanese driver may have had a troubled start to his F1 campaign this season, but he certainly has offered enough meme content for the social media team. Back over the Austrian GP, the duo spent their afternoon playing European football under the bull statue, wearing their respective racing gear, including the crash helmet.


Well, they’re back! Only this time, it’s at Istanbul Park ahead of the Turkish Grand Prix. And instead of playing football, the two AlphaTauri drivers were in for a photoshoot when Gasly chose chaos by touching Tsunoda’s buttocks.
