We Have Nothing Against Him: Red Bull Will Consider Signing Gasly For 2022

Pierre Gasly will remain at Scuderia AlphaTauri next year, but a return to Red Bull is on the cards for the following season.

Earlier this week, Scuderia AlphaTauri confirmed that Pierre Gasly will still be driving for the team next season, killing off the Frenchman’s hopes of a swift return to Red Bull.

It was previously reported that Gasly wasn’t in the running for the second Red Bull seat alongside Max Verstappen as he had “upset” a few people within the team.

However, Helmut Marko, the head of Red Bull’s driver development programme, has insisted that he has nothing against Gasly and suggested he could make a return to the Milton Keynes-based team in the future.

“I have nothing against Mr Gasly. He drives better than ever. We just urgently need him for AlphaTauri,” Marko said in a recent interview.

Continuing, Marko said: “Our AlphTauri clothing line is a project in which a lot of money is being invested and sales have risen noticeably since Gasly’s victory at Monza and his other excellent performances.

“For the strategy we have I need a very strong driver, especially if Tsunoda is a rookie in the car next year,” the Austrian added.

“Gasly is an essential part of our company philosophy. We have given Gasly a raise and the promise that we will talk again at the end of 2021.”
