Team AlphaTauri performed admirably in Qualifying today, they managed to get the most out of the difficult conditions particularly while attempting to understand the tires on the new track.
The team utilized Q1 as a "practice session" to learn about the different tire compounds more specific, soft tyre, which would then benefit in Q3 when needed to get the most out of it.
It was a challening qualifying session, similar to a wet session, because of the many modifications made to the plan dependent on the circumstances at the time, but the team responded will and both drivers - Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda performed exceptionally well throughout.
For Sunday's race, both drivers start on the preferred side of the grid both cars in the top ten starting on the medium tyre compounds. Numerous adjustments were made on the vehicle from Friday to boost long-run performance to bring home as many possible points.
Tsunoda comments, "I've got some mixed feelings about today. I think my performance in Q1 and Q2 was great and I'm really pleased with that, but unfortunately on my final lap in Q3 I had traffic and I lost a lot of time."
He adds, "I think I could've been starting further up the grid tomorrow, so it's frustrating right now."
He continues, "There are lots of positives to take away today though, particularly the fact that I made it through Q2 on the Mediums, so I'll be starting on the same tyre as everyone else around me tomorrow."
He concluded, "It's a really great track to drive, so I'm looking forward to the race and hopefully we can come away with points."
