Why Pierre Gasly’s F1 Future is Out of His Control

This season it really does feel as if Gasly will be actively looking to assess his options going forward with a possible move to another team in 2022. To me his time under the Red Bull umbrella is up but although there are seats in 2022 and I'm sure that there are teams that are interested in a driver of Gasly's calibre, to me it feels as though Pierre's future is more in the hands of the other teams and the other drivers on the grid, in this video I talk about his realistic options for 2022 and where I think he best fits amongst the viable options.

  • I know these are a lot of if's and that we're only two races into 2021, but: If Gasly keeps a consistant performance (yes, Imola was kind of shit due to the wrong tire strategy), if Hamilton decides to retire and if Bottas keeps performing this poorly, a Russell/Gasly lineup at Mercedes is not out of the question.

  • Pierre is very good, what I think he might lack is solid Management to back him up. He's in the exactly same position Sainz was in his ToroRosso days: no chance to get (another) shot at Redbull and pretty much stuck there. Sainz' Management was keen enough to work Carlos' way to Renault, which by the way it was struggling a lot, then to Mclaren and eventually to Ferrari. But the key move was freeing him from the Redbull "road to nowhere" galaxy where Pierre is stuck right now. He must get outta there, even if doing this means choosing a Team whose performance is currently worse than Alpha Tauri which is doing very good. It's gonna pay in the long term since no matter how good Alpha Tauri will get it will never be given the chance to overshadow Redbull besides some very lucky wins like Monza 2020. Ciao!

  • If Ocon fails , he could go to Alpine but that also assumes that Guanyu Zhou doesnt get the seat... Russel will go to whatever Mercedes seat gets freed first Mclaren will go for Norris and Ricciardo for the long-term Ferarri wants their two drivers for the long term too Aston Martin could fire Vettel if he fails in 2021 like 2020 ... He could go to Williams if Russel goes to Mercedes... He could go to Alfa Romeo , cmon , Kimi has to retire this year (i hope?) I dont see him ever goung to Haas ... Mercedes and Red Bull are very unlikely and that is assuming he is replaced in Alpha Tauri , he may actually stay for 2022

  • Red Bull has already stated several times publicly that AlphaTauri is no longer a junior team like during its Toro Rosso days. While both teams obviously can pull from the same development program and drivers can choose to switch teams, I doubt they would push Gasly out for a new driver barring some truly awful results.

  • i dont see Hamilton leaving after 2021 if he does leave he’ll leave after 2022 to see how Mercedes is with the new regulations. Only realistic option for a new team for Pierre would be Alpine to replace one of Alonso/Ocon. Alfa would probably get Pourchaire to replace Kimi and if both leave then they’d probably get Armstrong or Ilott & Pourchaire. Williams would be too much of a drop down imo and they’d probably get Ticktum or a veteran driver to replace Russell and if Latifi leaves too (which i doubt cuz sponsors) then they get 2 veterans

  • I hope Gasly gets a place in a good team, I believe he had problems at Red Bull, but not because he was a bad driver, but because of the extreme pressure, in addition to the pressure of F1, he was still being compared to Max Verstappen who is probably the best driver on the grid, but at Toro Rosso / Alpha Tauri he doesn’t have so much pressure and can focus on what matters, that’s why he drives well at Alpha Tauri but didn’t perform as well at Red Bull, Alex Albon, who was also a good driver could not stand the pressure of Red Bull, now let's see if Checo can handle it, even Daniel Ricciardo ran away from Red Bull, And as we all know, Red Bull is a team that is not usually very kind to the drivers!

  • You forgot marketability of the driver too. The reason why Perez was dropped for underperforming seb. If ocon is getting replaced by gasly, rather than performance, which they're on par with, would be marketability And ever since his Monza win he's been on a good high. And marketability is one of the good points of gasly

  • I have a hot take that Ocon moves to Mercedes with Russel in 2022 after both Bottas and Hamilton leave F1 Gasly moves to Alpine and a new Mercedes jr takes over russels spot or maybe even an Alex Albon

  • If Mercedes gets an all new driver line-up and pair Occon (who’s already a Mercedes junior driver) alongside Russell, I could see Gasly go to Alpine

  • I feel like Gasly is gonna end up booting Ocon out of Renault tbh. I think the gap between them is further that you think, but also Alonso may sabotage Ocon with his toxicity. It sucks cause I love Sainz, but Gasly and Leclerc together when they’re already close? Chemistry could change the game

  • Just think about this... Hamilton or Bottas is set to leave Mercedes at the end of the 2021 season as I just can't imagine Mercedes leaving Russell with Williams for another year. Hamilton will either retire or Mercedes will ask Bottas to leave - imo Mercedes don't intend to go into the 2022 regulations with the same lineup and that's why they each have a one year contract. I think Russell will get promoted and then the Williams team will be in the search for a new no.1 driver. Williams is going to have a better season this year and, with the extra funding, I believe they will return to the dramatic midfield after the potential reshuffling of the table in 2022. That will make them a prime option for existing under-rated drivers such as Gasly or drivers like Hulkenburg, Kvyat or Albon to rejoin the grid. Mercedes will also be out to recruit a new rookie driver to add to their academy to replace Hamilton/Bottas after 2022, probably 2023 or 2024, where they want another young driver along with now experienced Russell. This will help Gasly join their team as well. However, Mercedes already have Ocon and might decide to replace Russell with Ocon in Williams, eyeing him to join Mercedes with Russell later - depending on his form in 2021. This also gives Gasly the opportunity to join Alpine next season. So I guess with Mercedes changing their lineup, it will be Gasly and Ocon to benefit and one will get an Alpine drive in 2022 or a Williams drive with a potential move to Mercedes in the future.

  • No look, if on the other hand, Ocon gives a stellar perormance, Alpine still might have to leave him, unwillingly, because at that point Mercedes would be Eyeing at him as Russel's partner (Given that Max stays with Red Bull due to engine freeze). So Pierre still gets a shot at it, and being a French driver, it'd be easier won't it?

  • I'm not sure why you say he's only had 1 good season. I personally think Gasly has had 2.5 good seasons in F1 instead of just one as you say. His first season in F1 with Torro Rosso was really good for a first season, hence why Redbull brought him up, after failing at Redbull he went back and scored a podium and performed well throughout the rest of the season, and last season he did amazingly all season long and became a race winner. Essentially, Gasly has always performed and put his Torro Rosso/Alpha Tauri where it shouldn't be.

  • Alpine and Williams I agree they are the best possibilities. There is a caveat however. Williams is currently acting like a Mercedes junior team with Rusell for example. However Williams has a glorious history in F1 and a few bad seasons do not erase that. I am sure they will come back stronger for 2022. Now I don't know if Mercedes wants to promote another junior into F1 but even if it doesn't Bottas needs to lose 2nd position

  • Best place for Pierre is Alpha Tauri Why? = A team that is on the way up, punches more than their weight and a midfield team that regularly gets podiums and was able to get a P1 GP WIN as a midfield team. With Alpha Taur you have a team that is on the way up, grateful to you, your team mate is not a threat, your pay is increasing, likelihood of more podiums and all important less pressure (work life balance).

  • Hmmm, fair. Williams seems to be the best fit, having new investment and likely to climb back up the grid, but Alfa Romeo seems to be a good shout too, fighting with upcoming Ferrari talent will be tough, but that will push Pierre as much as his potential Alfa teammate would, hence both drivers improve their craft. Alfa Romeo is also a team at the back of the field so it would be a good project for Pierre like Williams would be. The only thing is that there is so many Ferrari Driver academy drivers on the books fighting for an Alfa or Haas seat, it seems far fetched. However, if Mazepin gets booed out of F1, the tables could turn.

  • I can see the Williams argument, though I think the Alfa Romeo route in place of Kimi might be the better one -> yes he would have to deal with young Ferrari drivers but to me that's an environment he knows from RB academy so the Alfa Romeo seat would be like his current one but actually more secure since Ferrari can't replace him on a whim like RB can and If Ferrari can deliver a proper engine in '22 he might prove himself to be VERY competitive in midfield (Like Ricciardo 2020 level). Renault/Alpine would be interesting though and somehow I don't see them dropping Occon for him either but sooner Alonso (but now we're well in 'out of control' territory)

  • Sry but I do not see any link to Williams. Pierre has no connection to Mercedes nor to Williams F1 team members. Im pretty sure Williams will give their second cockpit to rookie in 2022. I think that Alpine appears to be the most likely option. Why? Because he is a france man and already has a connection to Renault as an engine supplier. If Ocons 2021 season is as "average" as this year, there is no reason for Alpine to pick Ocon over Pierre.

  • To be honest I think if he goes to Alpine Renault as his next team, I think that would be a great idea for him because he can do what Sainz and Ricciardo did. When they jumped ship form the Red Bull family, they each went to Renault, then Mclaren, then eventually Ferrari. Gasly can do the same thing. If he does that, then he will win more races. If he goes back to Red Bull, they are just gonna use him as a slave and that might cause the same problems he had in the first half of the 2019 season. It will probably hurt his career even more.

  • I also think the Williams seat would make more sense for Gasly, they're going to be a team we can expect to dig themselves out of the back of the grid and start moving towards the midfield. Gasly could do what Sainz did for McLaren and help the team improve the car over the course of the season and finally get the team to the point where they'll be scoring more points. If he manages to do that, it'll make him look good to other teams.

As you mentioned, the mercedes partnership will be even stronger with williams in 2022 so they will probably go with a mercedes backed driver like probably ocon? He is managed by toto and if he going to not have a good season he might get replaced by gasly and then likely go to williams. I see it that way :)
