Pierre Gasly took full advantage of the carnage from the big six to take a sensational maiden podium at Interlagos today. After winning the best of the rest battle in qualifying and the race, a collision between Albon and Hamilton opened the door for him to take 2nd place.  

Pierre Gasly – P2 

“This is just incredible! My first podium in Formula 1 and with Toro Rosso. I kept working every race on myself, I always thought that if I could be in the right place at the right time something will come, and today it happened, it’s just amazing – I have so many emotions! I’ve always said the team is my Italian family, I love their spirit and passion, they always push like hell and today was the best present I could give back to thank them for their massive constant effort. You dream a lot about being in F1, you dream about your first podium, but then when it happens all of the emotions coming through me are just unpredictable, it’s just the best day of my life right now. I want to send a huge thank you to everyone who has supported me since the start of my career and have gotten me to where I am today.” 

From the back of the grid, Carlos Sainz had the most special day of his F1 career so far. A 1-stop strategy vs two or three for all the midfield runners brought him right into play for a good result. A potential P8 turned into a magnificent podium thanks to the carnage in front of him and Hamilton receiving a post-race penalty.  

Carlos Sainz – P3  

“Yes! What a day! It’s a weird first podium not being there straight after the race, but I’m extremely happy with our race today. To finish P3 coming all the way from the back of the grid was a big challenge, but we fought until the end with everything we had! It was a very eventful race and I think I was the only car to do a one-stop strategy. It was really difficult to hold the other midfield cars behind after the two Safety Car re-starts, but I managed to defend my position well and took advantage of what happened at the front of the race. 

A good first stint, a great pit-stop from the guys and a very challenging and long stint to bring it home and finish P3 for the first time in my career. Congrats to the whole team, here and back in Woking! My first podium is obviously very special but we need to keep pushing to step up there on pure pace! That’s what we’re really here for, that has to be our goal!”
