Tsunoda: 'I’m really disappointed with today'

Yuki Tsunoda has had a disappointing first day in Hungary. The talented driver crashed into the wall at the end of the first free practice session, barely making it onto the track a few hours later.

Afterwards, the Japanese himself was also disappointed with how the day went. "I’m really disappointed with today, I made a mistake in FP1 and it meant that I’ve lost more than a session’s worth of running," he told Sky Sports. "The rear of the car felt very nervous, especially in high-speed corners, and I was losing a lot of time there compared to Pierre."

Tsunoda can clearly remember the moment he drove into the gravel. "I was trying to improve in those areas, but I lost control of the car and I went into the wall. Unfortunately, the gearbox was damaged, and the team had to work really hard to get my car ready for the afternoon."

Disappointing day Tsunoda

In the afternoon, it looked like Tsunoda was going to stay in for the entire session, but two minutes before the end, he was allowed out on the track after all. That didn't help the driver much though.
