Gasly “annoyed” to be associated with the non-renewal of Ocon at Alpine


Alpine is the center of attention in the paddock of the Formula 1 for a few days. Since the clash between Esteban Ocon et Pierre Gasly in the first round of the Monaco Grand Prix, more precisely. These last two weeks have been very eventful for the French team, notably with the announcement of the departure of Esteban Ocon at the end of the 2024 season and the various rumors that have surrounded the A arrow since. In Canada, the French clan is trying to put out the fire to fully focus on the rest of the championship.

However, in Montreal, it is difficult to avoid questions about the events of the last fortnight. And Pierre Gasly is no exception. On social networks in particular, the Norman is often cited as one of the reasons for the separation between Esteban Ocon and Alpine. Visibly annoyed by this story, the native of Rouen wanted to clarify things.

“Honestly, I think it's important to be clear and [to say] that I had nothing to do with the relationship between Esteban and the team, declared Pierre Gasly at the microphone of Canal+. These are things that are managed between them and that's why I wasn't at all involved in anything that happened since last week. »

“I made my life on my own and it’s true that it’s a bit annoying to always see my name come up in discussions, because Esteban has his relationship with the team and I have my own relationship, he added, brushing aside rumors of possible involvement in the discussions between Ocon and Alpine. We have two different careers, we are not twins. We each go our own way, each have our own career and I am in no way involved in the fact that the team did not renew you with Esteban. I'm out of it and focused on the Canadian race. »

Gasly consolidated at Alpine ?

With the departure of Esteban Ocon at the end of the season, the future of Pierre Gasly at Alpine seems to be clearing up, while the Frenchman seems close to a contract extension with the A arrow. No. 10, however, prefers to procrastinate, affirming that discussions are ongoing. “Of course, this is something that has been discussed for a while now. Things are progressing and for the moment, there is nothing fixed for the future. We'll see what I'm going to do and I'll announce it in due time.", he confided Thursday. In the meantime, let's hopeAlpine, Gasly and Ocon will be able to put their differences aside for the rest of the season. After business, it’s time for sport!

We knew that the 2 Normans would not go on vacation together... and that's still true today!

We'll have to make sure they don't take us for quiches! The situation is very positive for him, here he is finally free of Estéban! At what level is he involved, how did he (and did he?) work for this, only he knows. I can’t wait for all these pilots to write their memories!!
