That person is probably the most protected in the team... Long term contact with tons of non compete clauses.
I also wonder how many 'interviews' these snippets are taken from. Was it just the one and a different quote coming out each time?
I don't know what is route of his words but it is obvious that leclerc is a great driver maybe best in the grid including experienced drivers. I am not sure if another one can make this car Q3 contender. When we look gap with Ericson it is not just Ferrari engine or Sauber car. I am sure Gasly also know that.TakataDomeNSX wrote: ↑Sat Jul 14, 2018 12:54 pmGasly strikes again

Quickly losing my liking for him.
Short straights help weaker engines. They must be regenerating during engine braking too. If they can use 4 mf per lap and they use all of them it maybe because of ice weakness. Redbulls are not 1 sec behind front runners and if they are gaining 0.3 sec on turns with lesser df Redbull car is far better then two top teams.carisi2k wrote: ↑Sat Jul 14, 2018 1:00 pmNot when there is a total cap of 4MJ recoverable it wouldn't. The electric is where most of the power is being lost for Renault and Honda. Look at Austria vs Great Britain as an example. The red bulls were very close to Mercedes and Ferrari at Austria because there are more braking zones on the circuit. Silverstone doesn't have as many braking opportunities and is a longer circuit and a larger gap appeared.
There maybe some performance in the ICE but I am thinking that the energy recovery is the big difference with Mercedes and Ferrari both able to recover most of the 4MJ per lap with the H. This is not to say that the Renault's ers-k is good or reliable just that it looks like on circuits where they can't recover the 2MJ through the K that both Renault and Honda struggle at the moment.
honda is a match to renault , TR has a history of starting well and falling back, together with rookie drivers i doesnt helps them. wait till next season , when honda have a benchmark chassis and experience drivers. look at mclaren , and vandorne. he is not in his rookie season and still struggles, with their overated chassis design by incompetent mclaren engineers. only driver is giving them all the points"The chassis is good but with the engine we have we lose too much time"
This is the third or fourth article in the last few weeks where Gasly talks about huge engine deficit. Mclaren waited for third year before venting but fireworks seem to have started already with Toro Rosso.
Honda have improved both in terms of reliability and performance but the road ahead isn't going to be rosy especially in light of a moving target and a huge gap.
Fair enough, but as someone else has alluded to, we don't know if Gasly is really a super talent until he's paired with someone with a reputation. Based on his GP2 and Super Formula results we know he is very solid at the least and should be getting most of the performance from the car. Without a proper benchmark however we don't know if that's consistent, and if thats 100%, 99% or just 90%
