Gasly: Alpine needs to understand "super painful" Monza F1 weekend

In the Italian Grand Prix, Pierre Gasly and his teammate Esteban Ocon had a disappointing performance, with Gasly qualifying 17th and Ocon qualifying 18th. Gasly managed to finish the race in 15th place, narrowly avoiding being lapped by the winner. On the other hand, Ocon’s race was cut short due to a steering lock issue. Gasly expressed his frustration, stating that they have never experienced such a lack of competitiveness compared to their rivals. This poor performance comes right after Gasly’s podium finish in Zandvoort, highlighting Alpine’s struggles on low downforce circuits. Gasly hopes that the team can understand these weaknesses and improve for the next season. The team’s power unit being down on horsepower compared to their rivals is one possible explanation, but there are likely other factors contributing to their lack of performance. Gasly emphasized the importance of understanding and quantifying the drop in performance to come back stronger next year. Ocon, while acknowledging the difficulties faced, remains optimistic and believes that this weekend’s challenges can be overcome. The team will take the opportunity during the non-racing week to analyze and address the issues encountered in Monza.
