F1 2019 Round 14 Italian GP - Race



 
Both Aston Martin Red Bull Racing cars scored points in a challenging Italian Grand Prix that saw misfortune for Toro Rosso at Monza.
 



Grid penalties for Max and Pierre - for fitting the Spec 4 power unit this weekend - saw them starting at the back of the grid, while Daniil lined up in 12th place and Alex in eighth. The opening spell of the race saw a number of incidents that hampered three of our four drivers, with Max first picking up front wing damage at Turn 1 on the opening lap and needing to pit immediately for a replacement.


Alex was running seventh and attacking Carlos Sainz for sixth when the pair ran side-by-side through the first Lesmo, with Sainz forcing Alex wide into the gravel on exit. As a result, Alex lost two places and rejoined in ninth position. As he made progress back through the field he was then handed a five-second time penalty for leaving the track and gaining an advantage, but after pitting on lap 26 Alex recovered to finish sixth.



Daniil and Pierre were both in the hunt for points in the opening laps, before a bizarre incident saw Pierre innocently forced off track. On lap six, Lance Stroll drove back onto the circuit after contact with Sebastian Vettel at the Ascari chicane, but did so right in front of Pierre who was forced into the gravel and did well to keep the car out of the wall, but lost a number of places. With the Virtual Safety Car deployed for a stricken McLaren, Toro Rosso pitted both cars on lap 28, but Daniil was then unfortunately forced to retire the car on track with smoke coming from the back.



At the time of writing, we are waiting for the car to be returned to the garage so that, along with the Toro Rosso engineers, we can identify the nature and location of the fault. Pierre managed to climb back up to 11th place but couldn’t find a way past Lando Norris to take the final point for tenth. After his early issues, Max required a second stop one lap before the Toro Rosso pair came in and then charged through the field to eighth place to pick up four points from 19th on the grid.
 
 
 


Toyoharu Tanabe
Technical Director, Honda Racing F1   



"Today’s race was difficult for us, with some unfortunate incidents and a penalty for Albon, who lost some places after the incident with Sainz in the early stages. He did well to make up some places after this and finish sixth. Verstappen started from the back of the grid, having taken the penalties for fitting our Spec 4 PU, but did a good job to fight back after pitting for a new nose early on.



Gasly also started from the back of the grid with PU change penalties. He moved up a few places, but then, after he was pushed off the track by Stroll, he dropped back down the order and finished just outside the points. As for Kvyat, he had to retire the car at the side of the track and currently, along with the Toro Rosso engineers, we are investigating the exact nature and location of an oil leak. We still acquired plenty of data from running all four cars with our Spec 4 PU for the first time, which will be useful as we prepare for Singapore."
 


 
Pierre Gasly
Red Bull Toro Rosso Honda    Race : 11th



"Starting from P17 we knew we had a tough race ahead of us. It was quite an eventful day, we had a really good start and ended the first laps in 13th position. Things were looking pretty good until Stroll went off the track and re-joined just as I was passing, so I had to avoid him by going into the gravel and lost two positions and a lot of time. It cost us at the end of the race, as we finished only three seconds from P9.



It wasn’t ideal, but I think we showed some good performance all weekend and we had the pace to finish in the points starting from the back of the grid. I’m looking forward to a clean weekend in Singapore without any penalties to be able to extract the most I can there."
 



 
Daniil Kvyat
Red Bull Toro Rosso Honda    Race : NC



"It was shaping up to be an amazing race today, we were fighting Red Bull Racing at the time of my retirement, so good points were on the table for us. However, this is our sport unfortunately, and sometimes you can do a great job but something in the car gives up and you have to pull over. I was putting in the same lap times with those around me and was on fresher tyres, so I was confident I could finish well inside the top 10.



 It’s a big shame to miss out on valuable points, but we have been having quite a few strong Sundays lately, so we know we can fight for good results. Let’s think of Singapore now."
 
 



Alexander Albon
Aston Martin Red Bull Racing    Race : 6th



"There were positives for me even though the race didn’t go as planned. It isn’t the easiest track for us and we had quite an unlucky weekend in the qualifying. I didn’t have a great start and had to fight my way back though the field. Unfortunately, we didn’t have the pace on the straights to overtake so I had to do my manoeuvres on the corners.



That resulted in a lot of side by side action and at one point I just lost a bit too much grip going that wide so it started to get messy. I had a few offs and took a five second penalty. However, my race pace is getting better with the car and I feel I have made a good step up from Spa so personally speaking I am happy. Hopefully Singapore will be better for me as there will be more downforce and more corners. I think there is a lot more to come and I’m feeling more competitive."
 
 


Max Verstappen
Aston Martin Red Bull Racing    Race : 8th



"I got front wing damage under breaking into Turn 1 as everyone slowed up and I clipped Sergio’s rear tyre. We then pitted for a new front wing and the race was still on as I had really good pace in clean air. I managed to pass quite a few cars but we got unlucky with the virtual safety car as it came out the lap after I pitted and three or four cars which I had already overtaken were back in front of me. I passed them all again but it was pretty painful on my tyres and then at the end I got stuck behind Perez for the second time in the race.



I just couldn’t get past him as he was so quick on the straights. We have made some steps forward with the pace of the power unit but we will of course keep working hard to improve even further. With what happened at Turn 1 coming through to eighth isn’t too bad and these things are always more likely to happen when you start at the back. The last two races were always going to be difficult for us and now I’m looking forward to having a more normal race weekend and starting closer to the front."
