Age debutant AlphaTauri Nick de Vries lost to the young Yuki Tsunoda in the first two Grand Prix, but team leader Franz Tost is sure that the Dutchman’s experience will take its toll…
Franz Tost: “Nick is still learning. Our drivers are skilled racers who have both proven their ability to win races and titles. Our goal is to provide them with a competitive car.
There were problems with the car and Nick’s problems are related to this. In principle, in Formula 1 it is not easy to make your debut, but it is even more difficult when the car gets you into trouble. I have no doubt that behind the wheel of a fast car he will show decent results. And we will strive for that.
The main problem with the AT04 is the lack of downforce. This causes the car to lose stability under braking, overheat the rear tires, slide over the top and lose traction. We still have a lot to do to make the car go faster, but the most important thing is the aerodynamics.”
