Pierre Gasly admitted that he feels “extremely disappointed” after having encountered issues with brakes during the United States GP qualifying.

Gasly finished Saturday’s qualifying at the Circuit of The Americas in 13th place. After having been eliminated, the Frenchman was frustrated on the team radio. The reason for that was the braking problem that already occurred on several occasions this season.

“We glazed the front brakes – same as Japan and same as Canada,” Gasly said.

“So clearly not ideal. Especially the second weekend in a row is something that should not happen.

“I’m just extremely disappointed because all weekend I felt good in the car and I do believe there was potential to be in the top 10.

“But then in these conditions, it’s just front locking in every corner and just can’t decelerate anywhere. So need to get on top of that.”

At the same time, Gasly does not know what caused the problem.

“It’s happened three times with a new set of brakes.

“Canada was in wet conditions, so you can’t really apply a lot of brake energy into the brakes. Suzuka is a kind of low-energy track as well for the brakes.

“Here, it’s not really low-energy, so I’m not really sure. Talking with Daniel [Ricciardo], he had the same issue in FP3.

“But on our side, it’s clearly something we need to get on top of because it cost us in Suzuka, it cost us again this weekend, 5 and on the season where we need to capitalize on every opportunity we can have, it just shouldn’t happen.”
