Pierre Gasly has described his perfect Formula 1 race drawing up a fantasy circuit, conditions and dream cars to compete with.

Asked to create his perfect race scenario during an AlphaTauri fan Q&A video, the French driver has opted to blend his favourite sections and corners from circuits he currently competes at in F1.

In his fantasy race situated close to his home, he would also want to use the current generation of F1 cars “as they are the fastest” while considering a selection of F1 cars from the 1970s and the 1980s.

“The location would probably be near my house so I can go there every day and I can practice day in and day out,” Gasly said. “In terms of track design I think a mix of all the corners that I like.

“My favourite track, especially for qualifying, is Monaco as you get such an adrenaline rush. I love Spa and I like high-speed corners in general so Suzuka, quite technical too as I like Budapest and Silverstone.

“The problem is I like most tracks in general so maybe just take one corner for each. I like long tracks too like Singapore which has many corners. So, my favourite corners from all these tracks.

“For weather I love rain, I grew up in Normandy and I got to drive under the rain quite often, I do like it because you get more sliding and it makes it a bit more challenging.

“The car would probably be the cars we have now as they are the fastest and in terms of feeling driving them is really enjoyable but I would have loved to try F1 cars from the past in the 1970s or 1980s.”
