Despite qualifying fifth yesterday,  Gasly knew his task was straightforward today: survive the first corner, keep the Ferraris behind him, and finish fifth. However, Bottas' spin following a hit from Ricciardo opened the door for P4.

Gasly was  exceptional  throughout the  race,  keeping a very  professional attitude and handling the tyres and brakes in this altitude.

The  rest  of  the team did a  great job and the car  performed well throughout the weekend.

He comments, "I'm extremely happy, P4 is such a great result and we couldn't ask for a better weekend."

He continues, "Everything was under control with Charles behind, I was able to pull away nicely and manage the entire race well from fourth position."

He adds, "This weekend the car has really been there, we delivered yesterday in Quali and then again in the race today and finishing ahead of Ferrari always feels good as well."

He concludes, "We're equal on points with Alpine now, it's my personal plan to deliver fifth in the Championship to Franz and the whole team - a nice and well deserved Christmas gift - so we'll keep pushing for that. The way we're currently working as a team I think we'll be able to find our chances in the next few races. "

It's now time to prepare for Sao Paulo, where they hope to repeat their performance. There will be Sprint Qualifying, although having a quick vehicle would undoubtedly help.
