Too bad for that pit stop, it’s the first mistake of the year

Carlos Sainz ended the British Grand Prix with a bitter taste. The Spaniard tried to attack the top five positions but due to a problem at the pit stop, which cost him about 10 seconds, he was unable to fight for the top 5 until the end: “I pit stop quest ‘ years have been very good, it is the first mistake ”.

The Ferrari has shown that he has made some steps forward compared to the last races during the Silverstone GP and now there are great expectations for the weekend in Hungary after the second place in Charles Leclerc and the sixth of Carlos Sainz. The Spanish driver of the prancing Horse was the protagonist, despite himself, of an unfortunate episode during a pit stop that lasted longer than expected (about 10 seconds) and did not allow the 26-year-old to enter the top 5. Sainz managed to take home points after a difficult weekend the Spaniard but after the race he was unable to hide his disappointment at what happened in the garage: “Oh yes, a shame, but today it was a good race I think. We overcut Ricciardo, but we had the problem at the pit stop that cost us the position. The pit stops this year were very good, the first was wrong , so it’s not a day to complain because the team did a great job. Even with Charles, finishing second here with the pace we had. We must not forget that with the sprint qualifying I finished very behind, finishing sixth with a slow pit stop it’s not a disaster. ”

Regarding the race, the former McLaren and Renault spoke to Sky Sport underlined the good feelings on the car: “We have always been on the attack and when we had a clear track and clean air, we had a truly remarkable pace. Incredible how the car went today, a real pleasure to drive it with such a positive balance.”

Sainz finished in sixth position at Silverstone but this season he has already reached the podium in Monte Carlo and made a comparison between the two performances, also comparing the set-ups of the cars: “In Monte Carlo there was the pace to win, here Mercedes and Red Bull had a bit more. But we are surprised by the fact that in such a difficult circuit for us, we were very competitive. A really good weekend.”
