Pierre Gasly who is a junior Red Bull racer is confident that he is going to race for Toro Rosso in the 2018 Formula 1 world championship while Red Bull, the Austrian energy drink company had indicated that they will retain their current line up of Daniil Kvyat and Carlos Sainz.
Pierre Gasly is currently the no. 1 Junior driver of Red Bull programme and also the current GP2 champion. So, he is most likely the major competitor of the seat of any one of Kvyat and Sainz. If, Toro Rosso give any of them away then Gasly will be the biggest contender of that seat.
Carlos Sainz made a stir last week by stating that he thinks Red Bull were not going to renew his contract with the company and it was the hot news then. But, the issue was nicely handled by the Red Bull boss Chris Horner who said with confidence that the Spaniard is going to stay at the company for at least one more year.
Carlos Sainz who is a Spain born F1 racer was also got linked by another team Renault as they were making a list of the contenders for their 2018 line up.
Whatever, Gasly was asked about the rumors regarding Sainz’s transfer and he said that he does not have anything in his hand. Everything depends on Sainz and even if Sainz decides to leave for any other company the scene will take some time to get clear and nothing can be said until everything is clear.
Gasly has said to the media that the only thing he wants right now is to race in F1 and if Carlos Sainz leaves he will not be that much unhappy as it will vacant a seat for him at the Toro Rosso line up.
But he admitted that there is actually not much to do and no one knows exactly what is going on. But, he thinks that they will have answers of theswe fuses within the few upcoming week. He said the least he could do is to push the things to happen quickly.
Gasly stated that Red Bull has been supporting his in his career for the past four years and they certainly know that he badly want to make it into Formula 1. But, he also knows that F1 is completely different and a much tougher world than GP2 races. it is just not all about performances. There are other thing than these. There are some things called politics and money which play vital role in there and you don’t have much to do. you just have to make sure that you are giving your best effort to make it to the F1 and wait for them to call you up.
He also said that there are some reasons and due to those he could not make himself involved to the F1 this year. But he is hopeful that he will ceratinly enter F1 as a racer of Toro Rosso in the next year.
