Pierre Gasly has learned this morning at 9 am on his vacation location the decision made by his team to downgrade at Toro Rosso, according to our information. A surprising announcement knowing that he had received, a few days ago, new guarantees from his bosses.
A bad relationship with the engineers
His entourage regrets that he was not put in the best conditions to run, at least not the same as those enjoyed by his teammate Max Verstappen. The fault, too, to a bad relationship with his engineers.
Contacted by RMC Sport, Pierre Gasly's lawyer said he will now "show his true value in a team he loves and with whom he has already proven, Toro Rosso".
