Pierre Gasly stated that the FIA made “good steps forward” in their findings regarding the Japanese GP tractor incident.

Gasly had a near-miss with a tractor while trying to catch the Safety Car queue in the opening stages of the Japanese GP. The Frenchman was furious after the incident and called it “unacceptable”.

After the race, the FIA announced that they would investigate the incident. On Friday, the organization published the findings. The organization decided to change some of the procedures.

“I was most interested by what they will put in place for the future. That’s what I discussed with Mohammed [Ben Sulayem] after the race in Suzuka, that whatever happened there happened,” Gasly commented on the report.

“And most important is just moving forward, that we make sure everybody is safe, whether it’s in F1 or in the lower categories.

“And that’s what they are they are working on. I think what they put in place is clearly good steps forward. I know we’re going to discuss it at the drivers’ briefing, and anything more we could do will be welcome.

“But I’m glad to see they worked on this matter very quickly and came up with solutions already the race straight after that happened.”
