Pierre Gasly did an amazing job at Zandvoort, where he started fourth and finished the race in the same position to collect twelve important points for the team.
Gasly had to defend himself from Charles Leclerc but he felt comfortable with the car and he enjoyed a lot the Dutch GP.
“Amazing! P4 behind the two Mercedes and Max, I mean we could not hope for better. Twelve important points for us and a very good race, I must say. I enjoyed it – 72 laps on this racetrack, a nice sort of battle with Charles, trying to manage him behind. I enjoyed it. It’s a nice P4,” Gasly said.
Gasly thanked the whole team for the incredible job done over the weekend, and he also admitted that at some points in the race he could have gone even faster.
“I’m pleased,” he said. “The car is fast, I managed to set it [up] the way I want and the team did a fantastic job through the weekend. Today we were flying – they were asking all the time to slow down the pace for tires and I just wanted to push more because we had more pace than that. So, very good management and an amazing race.
“I’m [now] very excited to get back to Monza after last year and the expectations are very high,” he added. “We’ve maximized our package this weekend, so it’ll be interesting to see how it performs next weekend in Italy.”
