Gasly: 'Struggling' Red Bull have unpredictable car
Pierre Gasly has revealed that he is not comfortable inside his new Red Bull car at the moment, and thinks the team are “struggling” with the fact that their RB15 was so unpredictable during qualifying for the Bahrain Grand Prix on Saturday.
Red Bull were largely off the pace in qualifying, with Gasly being eliminated in Q2 after finishing 13th, while Max Verstappen hauled himself up to fifth.
Gasly, it seems, is not happy with how his car is performing.
"Since the beginning of the weekend, we've struggled, especially with the rear," he said.
"We tried many things but we didn't improve with the car. This weekend I don't really feel comfortable. I was wheel spinning a lot, it was quite unpredictable.
"I didn't put everything together and when it's so tight like this, I missed out by six-hundredths, it costs quite a lot."
In the 2018 edition of the Bahrain GP, Gasly qualified in sixth and finished fourth for one of the best results of his career, but he unsure if he can repeat the feat this year due to the unpredictability of the RB15.
