Scuderia Alpha Tauri’s Pierre Gasly admitted to having mixed feelings following the Spanish Grand Prix at the Barcelona Circuit Du Catalunya in Spain on Sunday.
The Frenchman started the race from 12th but was handed a five-second time penalty for jumping the start of the race but recovered to finish the race in tenth place and speaking following the action he commented saying:
“I’ve got mixed feelings about today, I think in the race I made a good recovery but we’re really lacking pace compared to the first two rounds, which is frustrating. I’m upset with myself for making the mistake on the grid, it’s a very silly penalty to get and it made my life harder. That being said, I had some good battles in the race and managed to pass a few cars to make it into 10th place. The car definitely has potential, we just haven’t made it work consistently in all corners around the lap yet. We’re going to work hard now ahead of Monaco and I trust in the team to make some steps forward in the next few races.”
Yuki Tsunoda was left feeling frustrated after retiring from the race with a engine failure and speaking following the event he said:
“It’s been a frustrating race weekend for me, I’m obviously disappointed to not have finished the race as I think my pace at the start was quite good, but it was completely out of my control. We don’t currently know what happened to the car, so we’ll investigate this after it returns to the garage and then we’ll review everything together with the engineers. I just need to look forward to the next race in Monaco now, it’ll be my first-time racing there and I’m excited to drive on such an iconic circuit.”
