Yuki Tsunoda is disappointed with his performance at Imola, as the Japanese crashed out in Qualifying and struggled throughout the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.

Tsunoda finished the race on Sunday in 12th place, and he also received a 5-second time penalty for exceeding track limits too many times.

“Doing mistakes two days in a row. For me? Not acceptable. Really not acceptable,” Tsunoda said.

“I just learn from it this time, but just improve next time.

“For me, Q1, completely my mistakes. Even in Q1, like when I see car performance overall this week, I don’t have to push like that much.

“I don’t know why, I just pushed too much even though I don’t have to,” he concluded.

Tsunoda’s teammate, Pierre Gasly, finished the race 7th despite qualifying 5th, as the Frenchman started the race in the wrong compound and made mistakes later on in the race.
