As the announcement was made to call Gasly in the fan forum, he arrived with the cutout in his hand. He arrived and stood next to his teammate, Esteban Ocon, and the hosts.

Then he went on to put the cut-out on his face to reveal the fascinating dance. This left the audience present there, cheering louder than ever. Moreover, the hosts, as well as Ocon, cracked up on the move.

Pierre Gasly and Daniel Ricciardo share an amicable relationship

Gasly and Ricciardo have always shared a great relationship between them. Apart from having the Red Bull and Toro Rosso [AlphaTauri] connection, the two often tease one another on the grid.

With the Frenchman always on the receiving end of the Australian’s constant funny call-out. On occasions more than once, the Honey Badger, who’s always an outgoing personality, was seen calling out the Alpine driver with a “Pieeerreeee Gaaasllly” tone.

This is a common sight if the 27-year-old is having an interview and the 33-year-old walks past. Moreover, one-time Gasly was so impressed that he acknowledged Ricciardo’s efforts and said he was getting better day by day.

Gasly out-qualified his teammate for the first time

As the sport is in Australia, Daniel Ricciardo’s country has been favorable to the Frenchman. For the first time in his Alpine career, the former AlphaTauri man managed to out-qualify his teammate, Ocon.

The 27-year-old managed to bring out a blistering lap that saw him make the cut to Q3. While his compatriot was left out by seven-thousandth of a second in Q2. Gasly starts Sunday’s race from P9, while Ocon starts from P11.

In the last two outings in Bahrain and Jeddah, his compatriot Ocon beat him twice in the qualifying, but this time it was two-one to the former Red Bull star. With two Frenchman in a French team, things are expected to fire up as the season goes on in Alpine.
