Yuki Tsunoda and Pierre Gasly are among the most famous and beloved F1 duos at the moment. The AlphaTauri duo impresses the F1 fans not only with their driving skills but the bromance between them.

Last season, the Japanese driver made his way into F1, joining AlphaTauri and teaming up with Gasly. Soon enough, the duo formed a great friendship as the two drivers were seen joking, playing, and hanging together a lot.

Their bromance is just getting better and better with each passing day. Recently, Pierre Gasly shared that looking at Tsunoda reminds him of Teletubbies. It is a British children’s television show which features four uniquely shaped characters.

Gasly said, “You know what he makes me think about? He makes me think about the Teletubbies.” However, the young Japanese driver didn’t know about the children’s show characters. So, Pierre said, “I need to show you on the phone. They are cute little creatures.”

Pierre Gasly can’t forget the dinner with Michael Jordan

The AlphaTauri drivers didn’t have an excellent inaugural Miami GP, failing to score any points. However, Pierre Gasly still can’t forget about the weekend in Miami. The Frenchman got to dine with the NBA legend Michael Jordan in Miami.

Gasly reported, “Well, it was by far the best dinner I ever had, really. Honestly, super, super-inspiring. Really special evening, just to learn, you know, like the experience and to be able to hear from such a successful guy. I don’t think there was anyone else that inspired me more since I was a kid. And yeah, it was very, very special.”

However, the tips and advice from Jordan didn’t help Gasly much last weekend in Miami. The AlphaTauri driver has scored points in two out of the last five races. The last race in Miami turned into a disappointing race after having to retire from the race after colliding with the McLaren driver Lando Norris.

The 26-year-old is currently ranking P13 on the drivers’ standings with just 6 points. Meanwhile, his teammate is ahead of him at P12 with 10 points. The next race for the AlphaTauri drivers is the Spanish GP. It would be fascinating to see if they can finish in the top 10.
