Albadari can look back on a good weekend in Austin as Yuki Tsunoda finished ninth and Pierre Gasly thirteenth, but according to the Japanese and French there could have been more. Nevertheless, they are positive about the car’s speed.
Of course Pierre Gasly could have had more, but the future Alpine driver was given a time penalty because he drove more than ten car lengths behind the car in front of him during the safety car period, which was not allowed. And for failing to pay the team penalty correctly at his pit stop, he was given another penalty. So the Frenchman crossed the line in fourteenth place, but became P13 after Fernando Alonso’s penalty. Looking back on the race, Causley was disappointed with his punishment.
“Of course, the stewards decide, but I’m not really trying to be clever or take advantage of it, but there are enough positive aspects. I was happy with the car, we were very fast today and points are definitely possible,” said Cosley. F1.com.
Yuki Tsunoda capitalized on the departures of Gasly and Alonso and scored points for the first time in 13 races at the Spanish Grand Prix on May 22 and the Japanese are certainly happy. “It’s good to finish in the top ten again. I think it’s a good tribute to Dietrich Matschitz and I’d like to dedicate the points to him. The hard tires were a little less competitive, but I’m happy with everything. Points and hope to keep it until the end of the year,” said Tsunoda said.
