Pierre Gasly who has been impressive since re-joining the Italian team, his fine run of Qualifying continued as he secured fourth slot on the grid for Dutch GP behind the two Mercedes cars and Max Verstappen.
More importantly on a tight circuit like Zandvoort he is ahead of two Ferrari’s and Sergio Perez of sister team. Sergio Perez will be starting the race from P16 as he failed to make it into Q2.
Gasly is delighted by his effort in Q3 as he expressed his emotions in post qualifying media debrief
“I’m extremely happy getting P4 in Quali today, as it hasn’t been that easy up until this point here, we’ve struggled a bit and lacked some pace in practice.
We managed to find some extra time and put a really strong lap together when it counted and it’s great to be able to say we will start tomorrow’s race from the second row.
We knew how important Quali was on this track, as it’s going to be quite tricky to overtake during the race, and we were able to do a very good job today.”
Gasly thanked the team for giving him the perfect tools to continue the perfect run of races and qualifying session weekend after weekend specially when his team-mate is struggling to find time and more or less always well behind whether its Qualifying or race.
“The team gave me a great car and starting tomorrow in such a strong position, I’ll give it all to bring home a good result.”
