In short

Gasly suffers a litany of misfortunes

After notching his best result of the season so far with fifth place in Azerbaijan, Gasly suffered a Q1 elimination in Canada and took the checkered flag in 14th place.

He later said he was “very disappointed” with the problems that materialized in qualifying. “We had this brake issue, so the front brakes slipped and we were basically braking on three tires and that put us out of position.

“Then when we started from the back, we know it’s always harder, but we just struggled massively for pace. Massive understeer, poor traction, struggled with brake temperatures and everything. So just a very, very difficult day for us.

Tsunoda “pushed too much”

Yuki Tsunoda wasn’t in the mood to elaborate when he spoke to RaceFans after his exit from Sunday’s Canadian Grand Prix: “I pushed too hard on the pit exit and that was it.”
