Gasly shuns e-sports to focus on real racing
LONDON • Pierre Gasly said yesterday he was shunning Formula One’s hastily-organised virtual competitions to focus on getting “physically stronger” for when the real racing season starts in June. The virus pandemic has seen the first seven races shelved.
