Alpine driver Pierre Gasly wasn’t shy in giving his honest opinion about the quality of his car during F1 practice yesterday.
Gasly was taking part in practice yesterday for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix in Jeddah and midway through the race, he had to give the hard truth to his team about the brakes on his Alpine car.
The Frenchman was seen struggling to get control of his car going around the corners and was pretty straight to the point with his thoughts.
“Oh, these brakes are completely rubbish.”

His words to his team may have been warranted, as he ended the session in 6th place, just under half a second slower than leader Max Verstappen.
As the saying goes, it’s better to get the mistakes out of the way early on and hopefully, Gasly’s team can give him some better brakes for Sunday’s Grand Prix.
