Pierre Gasly believes that AlphaTauri will be “back in the fight” in the midfield in the second half of the 2022 season.

AlphaTauri had a difficult start to the season. They are currently 8th in the Constructors’ Championship and have not scored points since the Azerbaijan GP. The Faenza-based outfit has brought aerodynamic upgrades recently to address car issues.

When asked whether he was optimistic about AlphaTauri’s chances given the potential of their package, Gasly replied: “Yeah, 100 percent.

“We knew at the start of the season that this year is a race of development; new regulations, new cars, people are just going to develop their car throughout the year.

“It doesn’t really matter how you start, what’s important is just to have [progress] through the year.

“I think we started in a decent place. I kind of got slowed down a bit with all the issues we had with porpoising, etc.

“But now it’s clearly bringing performance, and when you see how tight the midfield is, I think it’s clearly going to put us back in that fight.

“Now, two tenths in the midfield go from P8 to P16, so we just need to make sure we maximize the full potential of what we’ve got, for the rest of the year.”
