After the controversial video: Pierre Gasly spoke about the rumors linking him to Alpine
It’s hard to imagine a Formula 1 season finale similar to the one presented in 2021. The distance covered by Max Verstappen suggests that his double championship is on the right track. However, in the absence of this expectation of what will happen in the competition, controversies are in order and one of the last protagonists of them has been Pierre Gasly.
In the last few hours a video has been leaked which was recorded in the prelude to the Belgian Grand Prix, where the French driver was talking to his colleagues George Russell and Charles Leclerc when we hear him throwing the phrase: “Yes, I’m still working on the final details of the contract. Those words were immediately linked to the rumor surrounding him that he would be Fernando Alonso’s replacement at Alpine in the coming calendar. was the Pierre Gasly who should have come out to clarify that it was a misinterpretation.
“If they had an idea of the subject we are talking about, they would probably laugh,” the Frenchman said on Thursday morning. In a press interview in Zandvoort, he assured that the speculations woven from these images have nothing to do with what really happened in this conversation: “it was not related to the Formula 1, I can guarantee you,” he added.
All the shock was born after this rumor which took the native of Ruan away from his AlphaTauri team with whom he recently renewed his bond until the end of next year. “We were talking about marriage or things related to marriage,” he confessed about it. As to whether the comments bothered him, he said: “It kind of amused me, it impressed me how they can hijack the original theme. It was fun”.
Everything is the same
Beyond the clarification that he should have come out to bring Pierre Gasly, uncertainty was already installed. Therefore, the question of the possibility of a change in his idea for the future was necessary to dispel the doubts that had been created.
“I said it last week, for next year I currently have a contract with AlphaTauri”, he further pointed out. To conclude, he added: “I am doing my best here. I am very grateful to them because they are the ones who gave me my first place in Formula 1 and my first victory”.
