Gasly struggled with the RB15 car and was consistently off Verstappen’s pace during their spell together, and he was eventually demoted to Toro Rosso ahead of the 2019 Belgian Grand Prix.
In 2021, which was his second season with AlphaTauri, the 25-year-old finished ninth in the driver’s standings with one podium finish at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
He is set to continue at the Italian team alongside Yuki Tsunoda next season, but in an interview with German outlet automotorsport, Gasly was asked if he still believes he can drive for one of F1’s elite teams.
“The market will change,” he said. “For many drivers, contracts will expire in 2023. There will be opportunities. Everything happens very quickly in Formula 1. I’m not too worried.
“There are opportunities. I know that. We’ll see when it’s the right time. At the moment I am concentrating on every race weekend, on my performance.
