The 2021 Formula 1 rookie Yuki Tsunoda desires to stop swearing during race weekend sessions, mentioning that it is his “weakest point”.

Yuki Tsunoda had several tricky moments during Friday’s free practices and used swear words because of that. The AlphaTauri driver said that he was already working to stop using those collocations behind the steering wheel.

“I always try to be calmer every session, because this is like my weakest point,” Tsunoda commented on Friday.

The young Japanese driver also added that swearing affected his concentration while racing, so he had to get rid of those phrases: “Also on the mentality side, last year, I was more swearing a lot and losing my focus, so I’m trying to not swear a lot.”

In the end, Yuki Tsunoda shared his delight of having a calm FP2 and not using any cursing: “But yeah, I became a little bit too much emotional in free practice 1. But in this [second] session there was no swearing, so a good step from free practice one for me. So yeah, that’s good!”

Yuki Tsunoda was the 14th quickest driver in FP1 and the 7th in FP2 of the Bahrain GP. His quickest lap time was 1:31.294.
