The time for apologies for Yuki is running out Tsunoda. Having said that a young man should be expected, the Japanese completed his second year in Formula 1 and has never fully convinced, nor has he shown a consistent growth path alongside Pierre Gasly. Even in AlphaTauri the doubt may have arisen that he had the wrong driver, and certainly a few words from Helmut Marko don’t help.
The Austrian, who exaggerated months ago in affirming the need for a psychologist for Tsunoda, maintains that Nyck de Vries should be the first guide for 2023 in the Faenza team: “Yuki is young and doesn’t have Nyck’s experience and background, I think the Dutchman should lead the team. We’ll see how he fares next year, but given the experience and personality he has, he should be the AlphaTauri leader.“.
Tsunoda, however, would like to make the track talk, which he has only been able to do so far: “Well, to command the team will be the fastest between me and Nyck. I’m not interested in being the first guide, I’m just focused on my job, with many things to learn and improve on. I will be more responsible this year because Pierre is gone. But I’m still very confident of being able to grow: I think I’ve done it in every GP, I’m quite happy with the results I achieved at the end of 2022. I still have to improve a lot, especially consistency, but at least I have a clear goal for next year . A big thank you also goes to Pierre. In the last two years, without him I could not have made all this progress: I will miss him“.
