Why that HUGE pad after a tiny vax? Is he maybe trying to give it some good publicity? with a wound dressing that size he would frighten people off.

Pierre ran his new PU today.



Yuki Tsunoda 22

It’s been a good day. I think the approach here in France compared to the last few races is a bit easier, as I’ve already got experience driving here at Paul Ricard. I had a spin in the morning, but I think we’ve made good progress through the two sessions today. I struggled a bit with the set-up in FP2, but we adapted really well and by the end of the day I was happy with the car behaviour. My confidence in the car is definitely returning and my result in Baku has helped with that. We still have lots of work to do ahead of Qualifying and the field is very tight, so it’s going to be very competitive but the pace is definitely there.

@Red Bull Racing Honda and @Scuderia AlphaTauri F1 drivers take on a new off-road challenge in a race across Austria to the Red Bull Ring ahead of the Austrian Grand Prix 🇦🇹 Armed with huge Pinzgauer's they race through the mountains, but it's not just about being the fastest, we set them several tests along the way so they can learn more about Austria...

FP1, BBC text commentary :
Whoa, language Pierre! The Alpha Tauri man is also not happy with other drivers getting in his way and drops a load of fruity words over the radio.
With Yuki doing sterling duty in this regard as well, I think Alpha Tauri are going for the championship in this category ;-)

Promising FP1 in the more conventional rankings too.

Edit : FP2, oops jinxed it, "Sorry Pierre, this one's on me".

Let's hope Gasly doesn't get taken out by Charles again. Charles needs to clean up his first lap heroics a bit, it's been one of his flaws.

Makes you wonder hatever happened to this:

Good job Tsunoda! Less than 2 tenths from Gasly. Right in the mix vs Ferrari and McLaren.

Hmm, Yuki's got some explaining to do. Crossing the white line once is pretty bad (you're supposed to know all about these things, it's your job), but twice ? Surely after the first one he was aware.

Awaiting comments from him and the team, this was all pretty odd.
