Yuki Tsunoda feels he needs to work on eradicating his radio outbursts as he conceded he can sometimes "rush to overperform."

Tsunoda has enjoyed a strong third season at AlphaTauri, although the AT04 has not been capable of scoring points on a consistent basis, with the Japanese scoring all three of its points thus far.

During his career, Tsunoda has earned a reputation for outbursts directed at his engineer over the radio, something he is trying to remove as part of his learning and growth process.

Tsunoda's target

"I was happy with the performance in the first couple of races, but the last three races it’s been a little bit messy for myself," Tsunoda told media including RacingNews365.

"There's a couple of limitations like on the radio, where I want to focus and improve. Sometimes I rush to overperform, to be into Q3, Q2, whatever and sometimes mistakes started to happen more consistently rather [as opposed to the] first couple of races.

"In the first couple of races, you discover how the car performance is, see how it goes and not really rush.

"We're slightly towards the back now compared to the first few races and [trying to] score points.

"But rushing [means you] make mistakes more consistently, so I just have to reset myself and just try to focus on what I can do.

"But I’m still happy with my progress, with what I had this year compared to last year.

"Daniel [Ricciardo] gives more information and [highlights] more places that I have to improve, so I'm looking forward to it."
