Egginton: ‘We have to score with both cars’

Happy with the run and the points scored, but the Alphas want and need more. Above all, having both cars in the points. Some configurations and settings to review for the next meeting in Singapore.

Jody Eggington (Technical Director):

The positive point of today is that we added points with Pierre, who had a really solid career. At the same time, there are a few frustration with penalties that prevented us from converting Yuki’s excellent performance in a good position on the grid and be able to fight for the points. In terms of the race, Pierre struggled with the McLarens, but Ricciardo proved to be a badass and McLaren’s strategy created a gap for Norris that we couldn’t make up, so Pierre finished eighth. . In short, it’s good to score points again, but we need to raise both cars to improve our position in the constructors’ championship; That’s what we have to focus on.”

Franz Tost (team leader):

“Fans and centenary celebrations of this historic circuit they didn’t deserve the race to end up in a safety car regime, it would have been great to see a battle in the final laps. But as Ricciardo stopped so late, according to the regulations, it was necessary to close the race in this way. As far as we are concerned, ours was a reasonably good race. Pierre started fifth and finished eighth, struggling a bit with understeer on Hard. Overall, given the performance of the cars in front of us, this is the best result we could have achieved today. Yuki started from the back of the grid and it wasn’t easy to overtake, but he did well. We called him back to the pits to drive the Softs during the Safety Car, as we thought he would have a good chance with fresh tires if the race resumed, but unfortunately that’s not the case. He only finished fourteenth but had a good race weekend overall. We got four points today and that’s positive because we closed the gap to Haas in the championship. Now we have to continue this momentum for the rest of the season, starting with Singapore.”
