Franz Tost, the former racing driver, and current Alpha Tauri team boss have praised their recruit Pierre Gasly. The Austrian team boss said Pierre Gasly “a pillar in the team.” Tost made these comments while talking to Formula1.com when he was praising both Gasly and Tsunoda.
Gasly, the French Formula One driver recently joined Alpha Tauri, and this is his fourth year in the circuit. The 25-years-old already gained the confidence of his team boss and looking forward to work with his fellow driver Yuki Tsunoda.
Tost believes in Gasly
The 65-years-old team boss talked about Pierre and he conveyed in the interview, “Pierre’s experience will help Yuki very much because with Pierre, we have a pillar in the team who understands the technical side of the car, and if we have deficiencies in the car, he will detect it, and tell us and we can start to work on it”
The Austrian further asserted, “From what I can see now on driving style, Yuki is not so far away. He has given us similar feedback about the car and the car behaviour [to Gasly], which means he does not have a totally different understanding of the set-up of the car.”

“When we go to Bahrain, and do the first tests, we can compare already. This comparison will help Yuki enormously to improve his performance, understanding of the car and how to set up the car. The learning curve will be very steep but I expect Yuki will score points after a few races already.”, said the Alpha Tauri team boss.
Alpha Tauri set to fare better
Pierre Gasly was at P10 in the driver’s standings, but his boss believes he can do better with the team. The team management was quite content with Alpha Tauri’s performance last season, but Franz is looking forward to establish a better approach and results from this time around.
