After a period of fogging, Yuki Tsunoda recently returned to the points with seventh place in Baku and tenth in Styria. In Austria it could have been even better, had it not been for the double penalty (moreover for the same mistake, having touched the white line of the entrance to the pits). The Japanese still need time to learn, as logical: they could not be asked immediately for Pierre’s results. Gasly. But how long will this ‘gym’ last? Team principal AlphaTauri Franz Toast he believes that Tsunoda needs three years to fully adapt to Formula 1, despite the fact that he himself asked for results after just a few races.
Tsunoda fears Marko’s call
“Yuki has improved a lot. A rookie cannot be expected to know everything from the start. That’s why I always say a young pilot needs three years to understand this complicated Formula 1, because it has become much more complex than it was years ago“, Tost told the official Formula 1 website.”For example in the Paul Ricard accident (in qualifying, ed), the car reacted worse than Yuki expected; it hit the curbs, there was a change in wind direction and crashed into the barriers. You can’t teach this to a young driver, it’s something he has to learn in every qualifying, experience is important. But I am very happy for Yuki. It shows fantastic natural speed and is improving day after day, session after session. I am quite confident about his second half of the season and his future: it will do well for me“.
