« Me have a little question mark if it’s the same car … of course it’s the same car, but the character of the car is too different. I don’t know why I struggled so much. « 

Later on Saturday The 20-year-old, who ranks 10th from Gasly in 13th place in the World Championship, rowed back on his remarks.
