Formula 1 news: Pierre Gasly believes that Lewis Hamilton will finish last in a Williams or HAAS. Gasly believes that formula one is car-dependent and even the seven-time world champion, Lewis Hamilton, would finish last in a Williams or HAAS car.
The 2021 season gave a lot of limelight to Lewis Hamilton’s journey in F1. The unfortunate events at Abu Dhabi made the 7-time world champion delusional about his sport. There were rumours of him quitting.
Gasly believes that it’s only the car that makes the difference and even if Lewis Hamilton was in HAAS, the team which wasn’t able to score even a single point last year, it wouldn’t have made a difference and they would still be at zero points.
There’s always been a discussion in Formula one that whether it’s the car that makes the difference or the driver. Although, the best cars make a difference and start at the front the driver driving the car also matters.
Moreover, in a team, the best driver only comes at the top despite both the drivers driving the same car. For example, Hamilton was ahead of his teammate, Valtteri Bottas, by 150 points. F1 is not just about cars or drivers, it’s about their relationship with the car.
Formula 1 news: Pierre Gasly is postive that he will be at the top of his game this year
The success rate of a team depends upon how well coordinated the drivers are with the motor. F1 is more than sport now it’s an emotion. The racers need to be 100 percent blended and committed with their cars.
Similarly, Max Verstappen was ahead of his teammate, Sergio Perez by 200 points. In both cases, the teammates were driving the same car only. Gasly said that it is unfortunate that the majority of the result is dependent upon the car itself only.
He thinks that the sport is too car-dependent Lewis Hamilton won’t even finish third or fourth, he’ll directly fall to 18th or 16th in a Haas car.
Gasly had a good season in 2021 as Alfa Tauri’s only driver who gave them results as the team failed to get anything meaningful out of Tsunoda.
Gasly also added the third podium of his career as he finished at P3 at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix while finishing at ninth position in the driver’s rankings.
Talking about his upcoming season, Gasly hopes that his team builds him a good car so that he can finish in the top five or a few podiums also.
Gasly also said that he will be at the top of his game with the car he gets and hopes to finish at the top five regularly this year or even higher as he’ll be fighting at the very front.
