2018 FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX DE FRANCE

FRENCH GRAND PRIX

Difficult day for us at the French GP, full comments from the team and drivers:

Pierre Gasly (STR13-05, Car 10)

Race: DNF

"I'm very disappointed, it was tough to finish the race after just three corners. In Turn 3 I went on the inside and I thought Esteban had seen me, when I saw he closed the door I couldn't avoid the collision. It's a shame to have this incident – especially at the French GP with two French drivers. It's very difficult to take, I really wanted to do well this weekend and it's definitely not wanted from my home race."

Toyoharu Tanabe (Honda F1 Technical Director):

"This was a complicated weekend and it was extremely disappointing for us and also for all the French fans, that Pierre's race was over just a few moments after the start. Brendon, who started from the back of the grid because of the penalties incurred, moved up the order as others fell out and he also passed a few cars. A race to forget, but at least we can try and do better, starting this coming Friday in Austria."
