“At this moment we know that’s one thing we’re trying to improve: the rear potential on the exit. [I’m] a bit too aggressive so there are things we try to improve to go around it and try to make it a bit better through these areas.”
China was the first time this year Gasly joined Verstappen in Q3. He said there were “clearly some positives, some gains” last weekend despite finishing well behind his team mate but more changes are needed from himself and the car.
“I think there are still areas where we can make it a bit more suitable to me, and also on my side to basically adapt my driving to the car to extract more performance.”
