Gasly had a “much stronger” weekend in Baku – Horner | RaceFans Round-up

In the round-up: Christian Horner says Pierre Gasly raised his game in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix following his difficult start ot the 2019 F1 season.

What they say

Whilst he doesn’t have the result on paper I think he’s pretty happy with his weekend. In Q1 he was quick, Friday he was quick, he’s driven a good race and should have been an easy P6 today from the pit lane which is a really strong drive. I think even more encouragingly than that his pace, certainly compared to a Ferrari on the same strategy, he was definitely quicker than. So I think a lot of positives for Pierre out of this weekend.

You could see it. I think the confidence that came out of China came into Azerbaijan and I think even though he doesn’t have the result to show it he knows it’s been a much stronger weekend for him.
