Alunni Bravi Addresses Stake F1's Saudi Setback

Alunni Bravi Addresses Stake F1’s Saudi Setback

11/03/2024

Despite showing promising pace, Stake F1’s Saudi GP ended in disappointment due to pit stop issues and underperformance.

Stake F1 finished in the last two positions at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, following another pit stop issue and a lack of performance. Alessandro Alunni Bravi, the team’s representative, acknowledges that Saturday was challenging, even though the pure pace was not that bad.

“It’s quite a disappointing outcome for our race, despite the reasonable pace shown by both drivers. Valtteri had a strong start, but yellow flags signaling a possible car stall forced him to brake, resulting in the loss of a few positions,” Alunni Bravi states.

“Taking advantage of an early safety car and considering his start on soft tires, we opted for an early pit stop. Unfortunately, we struggled to find the optimal operating window for the hard tires to perform at their best.”

“Guanyu’s race was characterized by good and consistent performance. Deciding to keep him on track during the safety car phase allowed him to compete with Kevin [Magnussen] and Nico [Hülkenberg] for points.”

“Regrettably, we encountered an issue during the pit stop: it was similar to last week’s in Bahrain, not due to a fault of any of our mechanics but something that requires thorough investigation. This setback placed Guanyu at the back of the pack, yet he showed good pace on soft tires.”

“In a highly competitive midfield, we cannot afford any minor issues and must extract 100% of our performance. We look forward to the next race in Melbourne with confidence to compete once again for points.”
