Pierre Gasly says that he is very excited for the upcoming weekend in Brazil, in what will be his first time at the iconic Interlagos Circuit. It will be Gasly's fourth Grand Prix appearance, after making his debut for Toro Rosso in Malaysia last month.
In his three races so far, Gasly has failed to finish inside the points. With two consecutive 13th place finishes, the Frenchman is hoping to go better at Sao Paulo, stating that a downpour of the ever-threatening rain can spice up the action.
"I’m so excited to be racing in Brazil this week! It will be my first time driving in Sao Paulo, it’s such a mythical track! It has so much history and it’s one of my favourites, even though I wasn’t born, one of my favourite races was when Ayrton Senna won in ’91.
"With Senna being one of my all-time idols, I really can’t wait to get there and discover this amazing track! The weather can be sometimes tricky and I remember many race weekends happening under rain, in terms of performance it will be better for us. I really like wet conditions as well, so let’s see how it will be, I think the rain would be good for us to spice things up! If it rains, anything can happen!"
