AlphaTauri driver Yuki Tsunoda has shared how much he was fined for swearing at the Monaco Grand Prix.

Tsunoda was chatting with teammate Nyck de Vries on the Tauri Talk Podcast.

One of the things the Japanese driver is best known for on the grid is his profanity.

Tsunoda can often be heard swearing down his radio to the team for many different reasons.

He was challenged by the team to see how little he could swear over the weekend.

That doesn’t necessarily stop him from getting frustrated when he’s behind the wheel of the car.

He ended his run of finishing either 10th or 11th at Monaco where he was once again outside of the points.

Despite starting ninth, strategy and rain saw him tumble down the order and finish behind the teammate for the first time.

The host of the Tauri Talk podcast said: “Over the weekend, Yuki decided he wanted to start a game to address his bad habit, which is swearing.

Tsunoda joked: “I was really good at this game!”

The host continued: “So it’s very simple, each swear word costs you five euros. So the aim is to watch what you say, limit your profanity and it made it more difficult as we were doing stuff like assembling a TV or going to the gym.

“Over two days, would you like to guess Yuki’s total bill?

Teammate Nyck De Vries guessed: “200 euros.”

“I would love to say yes, but it was actually lower,” the host replied. “So he was surprisingly quite well behaved.

“The first day it was 45 euros, second day was 55 [euros], so he went the other way.

“What I will point out, and then we played it one more after that, all three days within 30 seconds he had broken the rules.

Tsunoda concluded by saying: “I hate this game.”

It’s always entertaining to listen in to the AlphaTauri’s drivers’ radio messages.

Although Tsunoda might want to get fined for his swearing, it always adds a level of humour to a race.

He’ll be hoping there’s no reason for profanities in Barcelona this weekend.
