Pierre Gasly was disappointed with the way the Brazilian Grand Prix went as he finished thirteenth at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace.

The Frenchman started tenth after a strong qualifying performance in the Red Bull Toro Rosso Honda and a good start had moved him up to eighth position but soon he started to fall down the order.

“I had some good battles today, but it was a tough race. I had a good start and got to eighth, but after that we clearly were suffering compared to our direct competitors.”

Gasly felt the Toro Rosso “didn’t have the pace” to fight this weekend and was disappointed that they couldn’t follow up the point from Mexico with another in Brazil.

“I tried to fight as much as I could but we clearly didn’t have the pace for points today.

“We knew Brazil would be difficult, but after the performance we showed in Mexico we were a bit more optimistic, so in the end we’re a bit disappointed with the way the race unfolded.”

This way Gasly’s penultimate race with Toro Rosso before his move to Aston Martin Red Bull Racing next season and he is aiming to finish the season with a good result.

“Now there’s one race left of the season so hopefully we can finish on a high!”
