Yuki Tsunoda, running in 15th place, was the only car no. 22 to receive an unblocking instruction from the race direction. He crashed to the rear and finished the race in 17th place, one lap behind.
Yuki Tsunoda said: “Normally I can disengage under the safety car, but today I was told to stay in my position, so I didn’t get a chance to move forward and was a full lap behind the pack. I’ll finish it,” I’m confused .
Jonathan Addles, Scuderia AlphaTauri’s chief race engineer, added: “We need to clarify why, but he couldn’t budge. I got a blue flag from.”
