Frenchman Pierre Gasly is bracing himself for a tough weekend at Silverstone with his AlphaTauri team ahead of the 2022 British Grand Prix.

Silverstone’s layout is full of high speed corners, particularly Maggotts and Becketts, where Gasly can see his machine struggling.

“Being honest when assessing our car, we know we lack a bit of aero and we can expect to deal with a weekend that might not be straightforward for us,” the one-time race winner said.

“We will still be doing everything we can to get the most out of the package we have right now. We must be ready seize whatever opportunities come our way, even if on paper, Silverstone will be tricky for us.”

Gasly’s Japanese teammate Yuki Tsunoda agreed with the Frenchman’s assessment, saying: “Our usual aim is to try and make it to Q3 on Saturday and score points, I think it could be a difficult race for our current package.”

The 22-year-old added that a “smooth” free practice would help the team.

The Faenza-based team have not reached the consistency they achieved in 2021, where their car was, at times, third or fourth fastest.

2022 has seen the team slide behind Alpine and Alfa Romeo in the standings, closer to Aston Martin than the leading Midfield trio, headed by McLaren.
