Pierre Gasly: I am pleased to again work with Toro RossoAugust 29, 2019
During the summer break, Red Bull was castled – Alexander Elbon moved to Red Bull Racing, and Pierre Gasley returned to his place in Toro Rosso. Before the stage in the Spa, the Frenchman spoke about his tasks for the second half of the season.
Pierre Gasly: “The summer break is over, before the end of the season I will be back in my Italian family – I am happy to work with Toro Rosso again. I had several weeks to rest and train to prepare for the remaining nine races. I will do my best to bring maximum results to the team.
It was great to relax a bit and take stock of the first part of the season, but now I’m focused on the remaining races. This week we were busy preparing for the second part of the championship – I met with the engineers at the base and adjusted the seat, trying to get as prepared as possible for the weekend.
It’s great to get back in after a break. It is especially nice that this will happen on my favorite Spa track. I really like the track, and in the past I have achieved excellent results. In Formula 4, I won here my first victory, and also won the GP2 Saturday race in 2016.
Now my task is to get the most out of the car with the Toro Rosso before the end of the season. “I will do my best to bring as many points as possible and help the team defend their position in the Cup of designers.”
Daniil Kvyat: “The summer break came on time, so I managed to spend time with our baby Penelope, who was born the day before the race in Germany. During the holidays, I tried to spend as much time as possible at home, but at the same time I maintained my physical form.
Before heading to the Spa, I made a short visit to St. Petersburg. A good trip organized by our friends from Red Bull Russia – I met with fans in my native country. Unfortunately, I do not have the opportunity to come to Russia as often as I would like. It was nice to get a warm welcome – I hope I will be back soon.
The rest of the time I spent in Monaco, but still found the opportunity to train and recharge the batteries. I must say, I had an interesting time – I’m just getting used to a new life with my child, I liked being with my family.
If we talk about the Spa, then this is a great track with a rich history and many high-speed turns. There are long corners here, in which it is very nice to pilot a Formula 1 car. It’s great that you can chase an opponent in a slip stream to Eau Rouge – a really exciting stretch. I hope the weekend is successful. I was happy to rest for several weeks, and now I am ready to return to the race. ”
