Pierre Gasly Gave His Toro Rosso Team a Crazy High Ride, Unseen Footage Reveals

Toro Rosso’s Pierre Gasly went from hero to zero and now he is back to hero once again. In 2018, he was highly impressive with the Toro Rosso under him and regularly outperformed Brendon Hartley.

Soon, in the wake of the sudden departure of Daniel Ricciardo to Renault, Red Bull handed him a promotion this year. Unfortunately, it was abundantly clear that Pierre Gasly was nowhere close to being ready to tackle the Red Bull.

Considering that he has bagged a maiden podium, and Toro Rosso’s third career podium, he is right. Earlier in 2019, in a similarly topsy-turvy race in Germany, Daniil Kvyat bagged a podium for the Faenza-based team.

In Brazil, Toro Rosso lucked out when Lewis Hamilton punted Red Bull’s Alexander Albon. Gasly, in 4th, immediately capitalised, to the delight of the team and managed to hold off Hamilton to take 2nd.

It is believed that Pierre Gasly attributed his better performance to “feeling more comfortable” in his Toro Rosso. The Frenchman finished ninth in Belgium and eleventh in Monza after nearly colliding with the SportPesa Racing Point of Lance Stroll as he came back on track, feeling better in the car ahead of Singapore.

Gasly said: “It will be my third race this year with the team and already in Monza, I felt more comfortable with the car and we have made a step forward…
