GOOD LAP vs GREAT LAP: Maximising a lap of Yas Marina Circuit with AlphaTauri
From the sweeping corners that lead drivers to the Turn 5 hairpin, down the long back straight, and through to winding final sector, Yas Marina Circuit certainly is a challenging venue to master...
AlphaTauri scored their best result of 2021 in last year's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix with both Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda finishing in the top five.
With the light coming down in Q2 last year, both drivers were in contention for the top-10 shootout – and eventually it was Tsunoda who out-qualified his team mate for P8 on the grid compared to Gasly's P12.
Alex Brundle takes a magnifying glass to the pair's Q2 laps, analysing everything from their cornering to the way they switch settings on their steering wheels, to see how Tsunoda made the gains over Gasly.
