“Brilliant” to see France’s reaction to Gasly’s victory


In the overview: Esteban Ocon says he is delighted to see the positive reaction in his home country to the decisive victory of his French compatriot Pierre Gasly.

What they say

Gasly had raced behind Ocon before his unexpected victory at Monza earlier this month:

It’s great to see how the French community reacted to this. It’s good. Of course, there hasn’t been a French winner for so long, so we’re really glad Pierre did.

Of course, I would have preferred it to have been me, but kudos to him. It was not easy and of course he did a fantastic job. I texted him Tuesday saying “Congratulations, you did a great job”. So hopefully we will have a few more in the near future.
