Pierre Gasly Staying With AlphaTauri in 2021

Formula 1 competitor Pierre Gasly will keep racing for Scuderia AlphaTauri next year, the team announced Oct. 28.

Gasly first joined the team in 2017 when it was known as Scuderia Toro Rosso. He switched over to Aston Martin Red Bull Racing in 2019 but returned to Toro Rosso about halfway through the season. The team was rebranded to AlphaTauri for the 2020 F1 season.

The Frenchman won this year’s Heineken Grand Prix of Italy and earned one more podium at the 2019 Grand Prix of Brazil.

“I’m extremely happy to continue with Scuderia AlphaTauri for another season,” Gasly said in a team release. “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.”

It is not yet known whether Gasly’s teammate Daniil Kyvat will stay with AlphaTauri next year.
