Exclusive: The real inside story of Gasly’s shock F1 win
Pierre Gasly's Italian Grand Prix victory will long live in the memory. But the journey to that famous win was one of many parts. AlphaTauri team manager Graham Watson speaks exclusively to Motorsport.com to give the inside story of one crazy Sunday…
In a normal year, the podium at Monza is one of the most special in Formula 1. But even this year, without the fans, the end of race ceremony took on extra special meaning for two men in particular.
The first of course was Pierre Gasly, whose photographs of being sat down trying to take in all the events behind his surprise maiden F1 win have already becoming a defining image of 2020. But up there too, experiencing his first F1 podium to collect the trophy on behalf of AlphaTauri, was team manager and sporting director Graham Watson, who helped play a key part in the success.

OPINION: The Azerbaijan Grand Prix had elements that make Formula 1 really exciting – unpredictability and shock results. This resulted in heartbreak for several of the championship’s regular contenders and joy for others who rarely reach the ultimate limelight. And one of those on the Baku podium is riding a wave of form he’s keen to continue
OPINION: With the global pandemic still lingering, Singapore's grand prix has been cancelled for 2021, with more looking likely to follow. Although Formula 1 has TV deals and profits to chase, retaining a 23-race calendar could be most harmful to those who sacrifice the most for the championship.
