Gelael is expected to go further in the Formula 2 and try to get enough points for the super license – because there it looks so far mau aus.With overall 15 this year is synonymous not assume that he is still under the top three drives the necessary counter. That is why a new start has to be made in 2018: "We know that we need a really good result in Formula 2 to get the points," said the Arden pilot. "Hopefully, we'll be able to do this next year in Formula 2. And hopefully we can continue the test program with Toro Rosso next year, and we'll see what's going to happen in 2019." Toro-Rosso-Teamchef Tost holds the options open to Gelael: "It always depends on the driver, if he does a fantastic job and improves his performance, the doors are always open, but first he has to perform very well in Formula 2 next year."
