The team Ferrari It comes from a very complicated 2020. The Italian team suffered a sanction due to an illegality in the 2019 engine. This affected the performance of the last year, and should be solved in the 2021 championship. However, the preseason did not have the best results for those of Maranello, something that for Pierre Gasly it is not true: «They are clearly better than in 2020«Said the one of AlphaTauri.
Pierre Gasly and AlphaTauri will have one of the most important rivals: Ferrari. Those of the Red team will fight to be the third best team in the championship, although they know that after the results of 2020 it will be very difficult. Gasly assured that both Ferrari and McLaren They will be the rivals to be reckoned with, although the British are one step ahead of those of Italy.
«I think Ferrari was hiding, it didn’t show too much. Compared to last year, I think they are clearly better. I spoke it with (Charles) Leclerc after the preseason and exchange a couple of messages, talking but not too much, just trying to laugh, get an idea, “Gasly told Stats Perform News.
On the other hand, Gasly commented that the middle area of the grid will be one of the most fought in the category, due to the parity that occurred in the last half. “We are close. I don’t know if they are ahead or if we are. But Ferrari is clearly better than 2020. I think McLaren seems to be a very strong opponent and competitor at the moment, especially with a single engine. Mercedes«, He stressed.
Lastly, the 2020 Italian Grand Prix winner made it clear that Mercedes has performance issues, although he insists they will quickly return to the top of the championship. «They had some difficult tests. But we know how strong they are as a team. So I wouldn’t be surprised to see them clearly at the top, ”Gasly said.
