29 september 2020 – Daniil Kvyat and Pierre Gasly expect AlphaTauri to compete on a regular basis for the podiums from 2022. The Faenza team surprised earlier this year by winning the Grand Prix of Italy with Gasly.
Under the new regulations, the sister team of Red Bull Racing wants to take a somewhat more independent course and that position offers opportunities, Kvyat thinks. “Of course the team has great ambitions. I’ve been there for some time now, on and on since 2014 and I know everyone within the team very well now. I think the team has grown enormously, if you look at how the factory has since arrival has expanded. It is getting bigger and bigger. And also the resources of the team keep growing, that is good to see. With the new rules, which of course aim to bring the whole field closer together, I think that there are serious opportunities to be closer to the top and regularly to be able to fight the podiums. That would be great for this team. ” Whether Kvyat himself will experience that period is unclear. The Russian could be in the kick seat at AlphaTauri and could be replaced next season by Honda junior Yuki Tsunoda.
Gasly is better off in that regard. The Frenchman had to recover after his relegation at Red Bull, but seems to feel better than ever and is emerging as the true leader at AlphaTauri. He is also optimistic about the future of the Italian stable. “I think that it [team] will be a regular candidate for the top ten. But we should also not underestimate the knowledge and facilities that the top teams have built up in recent years. That is something they already have ready and we don’t. The cost will be [door het budgetplafond] admittedly reduced, but it will certainly take a few more years. But I am optimistic about it. “
MotoGP as an example
Gasly hopes that things will go the same way in Formula 1 as in MotoGP. “My good friend Fabio Quartararo is on a private team there, but can just compete for the championship. He takes pole positions and wins races. It would be great if we could do that in Formula 1 too.”
