Pierre Gasly has revealed that he has received interest from other Formula 1 teams but currently has no idea where his future lies.

The Frenchman has had outstanding start to the season with AlphaTauri, picking up a podium at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix and consistently outracing his rookie teammate Yuki Tsunoda.

Gasly also earned an incredible victory at last season’s Italian Grand Prix, and has generally revived his reputation since an ill-fated spell with Red Bull at the start of the 2019 season.

Looking ahead, Gasly admitted that his future remains up in the car, stating that he needs to talk with Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko.

“To be fair I have no idea at the moment, it’s something that we are going to talk with Red Bull and with Helmut especially,” he said. “I don’t know what’s the will of Helmut and what’s – whether they want to take me back, whether they want me to stay in AlphaTauri, whether they’re willing to release me to another team.”

Asked whether there were other teams that had expressed an interest in offering Gasly a seat for next season, he replied: “Yes, there is interest. I’m trying my best, showing my potential, giving my best with AlphaTauri and I think what we are doing at the moment is very good and the team is – I really hope this year we can get the best result in the team championship for the team, the best ever since the team joined in Formula 1.

“That’s my goal personally and then yes, we’ll see going forward what are the most attractive options that we have. Ultimately it goes down to Red Bull and yeah discussing with them what do we together going forward.”
