Alarm Bells Ring as Pierre Gasly Expresses Safety Concerns in Spa Sprint Start – What Happened?
Gasly explained that his position was sixth at the time, but the lack of visibility made it challenging to judge distances and positions of other cars. He mentioned that if another driver like Oscar Piastri or Max Verstappen was in the middle of the straight, he might not have seen them and could have collided with them unintentionally.
During the warm-up phase, Gasly and the other drivers were simply hoping for the best due to the limited visibility. In those conditions, he did not feel safe and expressed the importance of considering the opinions of all 20 drivers regarding the challenging conditions they faced during the formation laps.
