Gasly targeting improvement after summer break

Gasly targeting improvement after summer break

Pierre Gasly knows he must improve his performances in qualifying and in the race proper as he looks back on yet another disappointing weekend in which he finished sixth in the Hungarian Grand Prix.

The Red Bull man looked strong in the first two practice sessions in Budapest, only to suddenly suffer from a drop in engine power - something he says needs to be assessed.

"I am not satisfied with my race, it was very difficult. Friday went well for us, but after FP3 I lost a lot of speed,” he admitted.

“Qualifying was, therefore, difficult yesterday and that was also the case today. I also had a bad start, which didn't make it any easier.

“I attacked as much as possible, but I slid in all directions and struggled with grip all afternoon. It's time to take a break, analyse everything and come back stronger in the second half,"

The Frenchman is aware his qualifying in particular needs to get better, but is struggling to understand the drop in car performance from practice sessions over into Q1.

"It is clear that I have to be more ahead during qualifying, but I was very happy with the car during FP1 and 2.

“In FP3, I suddenly struggled with it I have to understand what went wrong and what went well. Then I have to come back to Spa well,"

The race in Hungary was another which saw him outperformed by team-mate Max Verstappen, who led the majority of the GP before eventually finishing second to Lewis Hamilton.
