2021 Formula 1 Portuguese Grand Prix highlights

Scuderia AlphaTauri


Scuderia AlphaTauri’s Pierre Gasly finished in the points, taking 10th after passing Carlos Sainz late on, while Japanese rookie Yuki Tsunoda took 15th.

Pierre Gasly

Honestly, today was really difficult – it wasn’t the race we wanted but, to be honest, it was what we expected. We’ve really struggled here across the weekend, only just making it through to the top 10 in Qualifying, so I think to come away with a point is positive. I was happy at the start of the race, as I was managing to follow Charles but ultimately we lacked pace – due to having no grip in the low-speed corners – and in the end, I think it was great to pass Carlos to get a point for the team. I think the circuit in Barcelona will suit our car more, as it’s a much faster track, so I’m hoping that we’ll perform better there, in a few days’ time.

Yuki Tsunoda

It was really tough today, I had no grip at the beginning of the race and there was just no pace at all for me out there. I’ve struggled all weekend with the balance of the car, the conditions haven’t helped, but everyone has been driving the same track so we just need to analyse the data, to see what didn’t work here in Portugal, and learn from it ahead of next weekend in Spain.
