Pierre Gasly believes that the bumps at the COTA will make the United States Grand Prix more difficult this weekend.


  • Following the MotoGP round at COTA, F1 race director Michael Masi requested that the surface of the track should be modified to remove some of the worst bumps.
  • AlphaTauri driver Pierre Gasly believes that the severity of these bumps may cause issues heading into this weekend’s race.

What he had to say:

  • “I think it could be quite complicated this weekend. Having watched MotoGP a few weeks back, the bumps which were already pretty bad last time we raced there, seem even more severe now.”
  • “It will require some sort of compromise on [the] setup, but we won’t really know until we get there. I’m not particularly worried about it, because our car is working well everywhere at the moment and we just have to avoid any problems waiting to ambush us so that we can continue to close in on Alpine in the championship.”
