GP rookie Yuki Tsunoda did an excellent job in second free practice at the Bahrain Grand Prix – seventh place. Then the Japanese apologized for a tantrum on the radio.

AlphaTauri-Honda has confirmed the good impression from the winter tests: In the second free practice session, the Faenza racing team placed both drivers in the top ten – Grand Prix rookie Yuki Tsunoda set the seventh fastest time, Pierre Gasly finished in 9th place Apologize to Tsunoda right away. Because his collar fell briefly in the car.

Because he found himself in traffic a few times, the 20-year-old Japanese scolded during the first free practice session on the radio: “Really! Always this damn traffic! ” Then the Asian remarked with understanding: “I have to calm down, that is obviously a weakness of mine. I curse a lot and then I lose focus. I was too emotional in the car. In the second training session I had a better grip on myself, no more curses. “

Tsunoda’s goal for the final training session in Bahrain: “Of course we want to make it into the top ten with both cars. I even have confidence that we can make a vehicle in the top seven. As a personal goal, I just want to be able to claim to get the best out of myself. And I want to hit my stable mate. “

AlphaTauri team boss Franz Tost on the balance of power: “Up front I see Red Bull Racing and Mercedes, then McLaren. We’ll see what’s going on with Ferrari. But I guess we’re close to Ferrari and the rest. The performance density in midfield is enormous. A few tenths make the difference between 8th and 15th. I hope we can put both cars in the top ten in qualifying and then in the points in the race. ”

But everything has to work smoothly for this. On Saturday night AlphaTauri had to break the curfew to work on the Honda engine. It is not a part of the regulations that is relevant (such as a combustion engine, turbo or battery), but a sensor that is difficult to reach. A racing team may violate curfew twice per season with impunity.
