Pierre Gasli: The result has surpassed expectations


Pierre Gasli is surprised with the ninth place on qualification in Monza and understands that to keep this position in a race will be difficult. In an interview he has told about progress of Honda and about what has played a key role in success...

Question: Yesterday foretold nothing so good result...

Pierre Gasli: It is a fantasy! In all three sessions fight was very dense. To qualification we didn't assume that we will pass in the second part, and as a result I have appeared in the final where has shown the ninth time! The result has surpassed expectations. Perhaps, I have passed one of the best circles in a season, it is twice pleasant to achieve such result in Italy, at a stage, house for team.

Question: What do you wait from a race for?

Pierre Gasli: It is necessary to us hardly, but the start from the ninth place gives quite good chances in the first turn. It is better, than to start from peloton depth. We will look how events will develop after that.

On Friday to me it was uncomfortable in the car, and today I feel big confidence. We know that at our rivals the maximum speed is higher so to keep this position in a race will be difficult. It is necessary well to start, try to remain closer to faster cars and to use slipstry.

Question: How did the car on Friday behave?

Pierre Gasli: Unstably. I couldn't trust her. On the high-speed route like Monza it is difficult to use completely car potential on one circle. Today I have in many respects achieved progress and with optimism I wait for a race. In qualification the car had an excellent balance.

Question: As far as you are happy with the circle? What has played a crucial role?

Pierre Gasli: First of all, I knew that to me it is surely necessary slipstry therefore at trainings I experimented with a distance to rivals: I tried to go in two seconds, in 2,3 seconds, 2,5 seconds. On the last series of detours behind Carlos I have taken everything ideally. I nearly blocked forward wheels on each braking, but have correctly passed all apexes and well dispersed.

to Me was succeeded to achieve from the car of what is necessary - she correctly reacted to my actions so I am happy with her balance. She perfectly reacted to work as a wheel, and I could use all width of the route. Crossing finishing line, I knew that I have made everything that I could. It is exciting to win the ninth place as a result.

Question: Have you changed settings before a final series of circles?

Pierre Gasli: Yes, and everything became much better. It is very important point. Sometimes between Friday trainings and qualification we didn't manage to achieve desirable progress, and so was few times. But during this week-end all of us have made ideally.

Question: Your result proves progress of Honda, in Monza motor power is very important...

Pierre Gasli: Of course. I don't know what results achieved in Honda in Monza in recent years. But we in Spa we have given a surprise and have scored points on the route where motor power is important. During this week-end we have surprised all again so everything goes in the right direction. In my opinion,
