Tsunoda knows: On a circuit like Monaco you need a very different approach

Looking ahead to this weekend's Monaco Grand Prix, AlphaTauri driver Yuki Tsunoda explains the unique approach to the track, and also takes a moment to look back at his dramatic qualifying performance in Spain.

"I’m looking forward to Monaco, particularly as Spain was a difficult weekend for me", Tsunoda begins in an official message from AlphaTauri. "I was not happy with my driving in Qualifying and made a mistake, but I must learn to accept that these things can happen and move on." Here, the driver is referring to his angry outburst over the onboard radio, which did not go down well with everyone.

Tsunoda continued: "I have only done four race weekends in F1 so far and now I am just resetting my mind. I am focussing on my driving and adapting as much as possible to the car."

Inexperienced in Monaco

The AlphaTauri youngster acknowledges never having driven on the Monaco circuit before, something that may cause him difficulties this weekend. The street circuit is unforgiving and a mistake could easily spell the end of the weekend. Tsunoda continues his preview: "You need a very different approach on a street circuit like Monaco, especially considering I have never been there before."

"Track evolution is a big factor there, with very low grip at first and then it changes with every session. The key will be not to make any mistakes in FP1 or FP2 in order to maximise my time on track." the Japanese driver concluded.
