Alpha Tauri’s Pierre Gasly is chasing a good result at Round 13 of the 2022 FIA Formula 1 World Championship in Hungary, not just for himself, but for the whole team.

Gasly has endured an underwhelming 2022 with the Italian team, but hopes Budapest’s Hungaroring circuit will see a repeat of his previous good results.

“I’ve generally done well in Hungary, I’ve finished sixth, sixth and fifth over the last three races there and last year I set the fastest lap,” Gasly said.

The Frenchman added: “With the summer break coming up after this race, it would be good to go on holiday with a good result under my belt, not just for me, but for the whole team,”

One-time race winner Gasly’s team mate, Yuki Tsunoda, also finished in the points positions in 2021 and the Japanese driver said the circuit is “an enjoyable track to drive, as you get into a rhythm through all the corners.”

The 22-year-old emphasised the importance of Qualifying on Saturday despite the improved overtaking capabilities of the 2022 cars, on a circuit notorious for being tough to pass at.

“I will be keen to see if this year, that (overtaking) situation has improved with these new cars, as so far we have seen that it is generally easier to overtake than before,” Tsunoda said, adding “Qualifying as well as possible will still be really important.”

Alpha Tauri finished sixth in the 2021 Constructors’ Championship but have slumped to eighth after 12 races in 2022, with Gasly and Tsunoda only able to score 27-points, as Alfa Romeo and Haas have moved ahead of the Faenza-based team in F1’s midfield.
