Gasly: Only time will tell if Tsunoda can lead AlphaTauri

Pierre Gasly of France and Scuderia AlphaTauri and Yuki Tsunoda of Japan and Scuderia AlphaTauri talk to the media in the Paddock during previews ahead of the F1 Grand Prix of Mexico at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez on October 27, 2022 in Mexico City, Mexico. Credits: Red Bull Content Pool.

Pierre Gasly thinks that “only time will tell” whether Yuki Tsunoda will manage to lead AlphaTauri.

Gasly will leave AlphaTauri at the conclusion of the 2022 season to join Alpine. Nyck de Vries will replace the Frenchman. Though the Dutchman has won Formula 2 and Formula E titles, he has little experience in F1. It means that Tsunoda will have to become the team’s leader next year.

When asked if Tsunoda is capable of leading AlphaTauri, Gasly replied: “I think only time will tell whether he’s got what it takes to lead the team.

“His path to F1 was kind of fast-forward. He went F4/F3/F2, and straight to F1 at quite a young age, with not so much experience. So I think only time will tell.

“But for sure he has improved massively this year. [I would] not be surprised to see him improving again next season.

“I think he knows what he needs to work on, a bit of self-control. But yeah, he knows that and I mean he’s got good people around him, and I think this environment is also good for him to really develop as a better driver.”
