Yuki Tsunoda #22
“Hi everybody, it’s Yuki here with the preview for Japan. Very excited, first of all – my home Grand Prix. The track itself is very high-speed and at the same time very risky. Once you step out of the track you end up in the wall, so you know a bit of fear as well, but definitely it’s my favourite track; I never get bored there. Last year I was able to go through to Q3 so that was very good. I achieved the target but at the same time, I wasn’t able to score points yet the last two years, so hopefully I can achieve that this year. So far, it’s good momentum, I think at the same time, every race we reset and focus, so let’s see how it goes but I’m feeling confident and can’t wait to get on the track in front of Japanese fans!”

“Excited for Japan this weekend, always love coming here. After the Australian GP, I managed to spend some time at home in Perth which is always a great reset, plus a quick stop in Tokyo for some wagyu with Yuki! The team and I are pushing hard, we’ve put our heads down and found a few areas to develop so we’re hopeful of some progress and points. I think every driver looks forward to coming to Suzuka – the circuit is amazing, and the fans are unbelievable. After missing the race last year, I’m really looking forward to hitting the track on Friday.“
