Yuki Tsunoda Reveals His First Wet Race At Imola to Be ‘Learning Curve’ for His Career

Yuki Tsunoda of the Alpha Tauri F1 claims the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix was a learning curve in his Formula One career.

Yuki Tsunoda, the Alpha Tauri rookie, says his experience at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix is a ‘learning curve’ for him in Formula One.

The young Japanese had a tough time in Imola, as the driver faced many misfortunes throughout the weekend. Tsunoda failed to impress the audience during the Friday and Saturday sessions.

Yuki made an amazing comeback on the race day. However, no prior experience of driving the cockpit on a wet circuit led to his downfall at Imola. Nonetheless, the driver is positive and claims this was a learning experience in his career.

Tsunoda asserted his feeling about Imola GP, “It was definitely possible to get some points this time. This is a learning curve, so I need to not do it next time and just do a better race weekend in Portimao.”

The Japanese proved his worth at the season-opener, giving a hard time to the seasoned drivers in the midfield battle. Therefore, many sports pundits expected Yuki to perform well the Autodrome Enzo e Dino Ferrari because of his prior experience with the circuit.

The rookie surprised everyone with his skills on race day. Overtaking the cars ahead he got P10. However, he soon lost his position because of his lack of experience spinning at the Tamburello chicane. He further got a time penalty for exceeding the track limit. Eventually, he got knocked out of the top 10  stumbling to a P12.

Yuki Tsunoda currently ranks P11 on the Drivers Table with only two points. Whereas his teammate Pierre Gasly is at P9 with six points. The rookie will take his cockpit at the Portimao circuit again and we hope he has his best side up that day.
