Yuki Tsunoda takes to the track for the first time in Montreal: the Canadian track was in fact absent from the calendar for two years due to the global pandemic situation. That of the Japanese driver is a really uphill start to the weekend: Yuki will start on Sunday from the last position on the grid, due to the replacement of his Power Unit. It is therefore not surprising to see him in fourteenth and seventeenth positions in free practice: his work is all concentrated on long runs, because it is in the race that Tsunoda will have to recover positions to try to get closer to the top ten.

“This is my first time here in Canada and I have to say that I really like the track. I really enjoyed it, it was enjoyableand – revealed Yuki – in the first practice session, after just three or four laps, we managed to have a good pace. The track is a bit bumpy, but also quite technical, so I just have to keep progressing with the pace in the next practice session and learn a little more on this track. This weekend we will have to serve a penalty so we focused on long runs to be able to prepare for Sunday’s race. We hope to be able to catch up“.
