Tsunoda disappoints Marko: 'Too impetuous, that boy'.

Yuki Tsunoda could only appear on track for a few minutes during the second free practice. His crash a few hours earlier was the cause of the problem. With that, the Japanese driver creates another challenge for himself.

The AlphaTauri driver is having a disappointing season. Tsunoda is currently 14th in the world championship, while his teammate Pierre Gasly is five places higher. The Frenchman has a 19 point lead over Tsunoda, which means that the latter driver must now be worried about his level. His mistakes on the circuits, which result in spins and crashes, are happening frequently. 

Helmut Marko also saw that Tsunoda was not doing a clever job during the first free practice in Hungary. "Too impetuous, that boy," the Red Bull advisor stated to ServusTV. Despite this, he also revealed that he still has plenty of confidence in the young driver. "You can also take other drivers who have had similar crashes or even more," he noted.

Pressure on Tsunoda

Tsunoda will have to work hard in the coming months to keep his place in the team. Red Bull's stable has a lot of talents who are all waiting for a chance in Formula 1. The Japanese driver has also shown his talent this season, so it remains to be seen how he will perform in the coming period.
