Gasly not giving up on Toro Rosso drive


With rumours about Toro Rosso’s line up for both this season and next year rumbling on, Pierre Gasly believes “everything is possible” as he chases a Formula 1 seat.

There has been a great deal of speculation about Carlos Sainz’s future with some reports suggesting he’s off to Renault as early as the Hungarian GP while others claim he’ll join the Enstone team next season.

The latter has been given some weight by Christian Horner stating that Sainz is for sale, but only at the right price.

Should the Spaniard leave Toro Rosso that would open the door for Gasly, who is the next in line for promotion from Red Bull’s junior ranks.

“For me my target is still the same. At the moment nothing is signed in Toro Rosso,” the Frenchman told NBC Sports.

“Of course at the moment everyone is talking with everyone, and every week it’s changing.

“Until it will be official, I think everything is possible.

“Of course my targets stay the same after winning GP2 last year. I just feel like I am ready for F1.

“I will keep pushing until it happens.”

Asked if he would look outside the Red Bull family for 2018 if it came to that, the 21-year-old replied: “At the moment I’m just focused on F1, and then after we will see in a couple of months what will happen for next year.”
