Pierre Gasly’s weekend in Portugal ended much better than it started, with the AlphaTauri driver recovering from a fiery setback on Friday to put a P5 finish on the board on Sunday.
Gasly’s AlphaTauri crew was forced to put in a sleepless night on Friday to prepare a new chassis for the Frenchman after an engine fire suffered during free practice has extensively damaged his race car.
But a spirited drive on Sunday afternoon during which the Italian GP winner dispatched his midfield rivals in spectacular style – save for Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc – was a just reward for Alphatauri’s hard work.
“We were very competitive, I must say I really enjoyed the race,” Gasly told Sky F1.
“It was very entertaining inside the cockpit; really happy we managed to pass the Renaults, the McLaren, the Racing Point of Sergio, especially after all the work the guys had on Friday night.
“They slept one hour, so everybody was really tired after rebuilding a full new car. So really pleased to give them back this fifth place.”
