Rumours have been going around that AlphaTauri’s Pierre Gasly is looking for a place in another team. Gasly would like to go to Renault and the team would very much likely listen to the Frenchman.
This comes amidst the 2020 silly Formula 1 Season, there has been rumours that Gasly has been having several arguments with the team internally and he is looking for another team. The frenchman had been promoted to the senior Redbull team last year but his performance was not upto the management’s expectations. This saw him being taken back to AlphaTauri in a move that was not pleasant to him at all.
Despite the rumors, Pierre Gasly’s teammate, Daniil Kvyat has been struggling to keep up with Gasly’s performance of late and has been facing a lot of pressure since Formula 2 championship contender, Yuki Tsunoda is set to be having his Formula 1 test on November with AlphaTauri. The Japanese has been tipped on the Formula 1 seat by Honda despite their departure from Formula 1 at the end of 2021 season. Albon has been under the same pressure and scrutiny as many feel that he will not be racing for Redbull come 2021.
What is more interesating is, Fernando Alonso is set to join Renault in 2021 after having a Formula 1 test with the team earlier on this week as Esteban Ocon is also contracted to be in the team in 2021. However, according to Sergio Perez situation with Racing Point, it has shown how worthless the little contracts are and so, Renault might not pass the opportunity if they really wanted Gasly.
Lewis Hamilton has still not renewed his contract with Mercedes and in the midfield, there are big changes with Sebastian Vettel, Carlos Sainz and Daniel Ricciardo all moving to different teams. Behind that there are plenty of candidates for the last seats at the smaller teams as well. So the Silly Season is far from over and there are still a number of surprises lurking.
