Pierre Gasly’s trip to Thailand rolls on, as the Frenchman attends events organised by our partners and meets with the fans. Our driver is having a great time, getting a great reception wherever he goes, as Formula 1 grows in popularity at an incredible rate in this country with every passing race.
On Pierre’s agenda was an event organised by our friends at Casio Edifice in the centre of Bangkok, with plenty of fans in attendance. The highlight was the launch of new Scuderia Toro Rosso and Honda Racing Limited Edition watches. These beautiful timepieces are jewels of technology and design for the true fan. They feature Bluetooth connection to mobile devices and details picked out in titanium, just as used in the build of our Honda Power Units. It’s everything a fan of Formula 1 and Scuderia Toro Rosso could ask for in a wristwatch.
Pierre chatted with fans and then took part in a computer racing game against some of them, in driving seats provided by Casio Edifice on a virtual Paul Ricard circuit and clearly the F1 Esports phenomenon is already hugely popular in Thailand. Then came the big moment, when Pierre drew out the name of the winner of the star prize on the night: a trip to Abu Dhabi to attend the final Grand Prix of the 2019 F1 season.
