Pierre Gasly and his current season
Gasly has been decent so far with Alpha Tauri car, as he lies at the 15th position in the table. However, in between, he has managed to upset his successor Alex Albon in Red Bull.
During the Spanish Grand Prix, he had the chance of making it into the top-5 of the race, as he ended up on P5 in Q2, few positions above Albon and 2 positions down Max Verstappen, but by the end of the qualifying he trickled down to P10.
And he could only manage to come 9th in the race, but at least manage to register few points for his side.
