F1 Abu Dhabi GP: Gasly explains Grosjean clash, Honda engine issue

Pierre Gasly reflected on an eventful penultimate day with Toro Rosso with optimism feeling he has nothing to lose ahead of the 2018 finale in Abu Dhabi after a hairy practice moment with Romain Grosjean plus a Honda engine issue in Q1.
Grosjean had been preparing for a fast lap in the final sector, looking after his tyres going slowly, but was not made aware of Gasly’s fast approach over his team radio by Haas which forced the Toro Rosso driver into avoiding action.
With fresh car parts, Gasly then had his qualifying effectively wrecked when his Honda engine dropped a cylinder coming out of the penultimate corner on his final flying lap of Q1.
