Carlos Sainz: "I'm frustrated, we had a car to finish higher" | Formula 1

Carlos Sainz finished seventh in the Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix, but wanted to finish higher because he considered that his Ferrari had more potential. His teammate Charles Leclerc was fourth, a position the Madrid rider thought he could fight for. “I ended up a bit frustrated with the race because I had a lot more pace and those positions at the start penalized me a lot. I take it that we were the best car in the corner after Mercedes and Red Bull. What has failed us is being in eighth place instead of being in fourth or fifth place. Overtaking here was very complicated, “analyzed the Ferrari. Carlos Sainz is clear that the main problem was in the first lap. “We had to fight after a bad start. Today there was a car to be more than a seventh. Here you go a bit bad, you stay behind slower cars and you pay it because our top speed is not the best. I think I could have done different things, “he continued. The Ferrari driver was among the first to see that Fernando Alonso’s one-stop strategy was suicidal. «We have seen clearly that the race was two stops. Seeing how people were driving I think they were going to a stop and I have seen that Ocon, for example, was saving tire. We were among the first to see it and then we were able to go easy on the Alpine. Going to one was impossible, “he corroborated. To finish, the pilot summed up his feelings. «It has been a strategically curious race. We have improved Portimao. The first round we have failed. I have the feeling that we had a car for more. I was going with the mentality of going to a stop and the safety-car helped a lot. Then I fired up the laps trying to pass Ocon and then thought better of two.I have seen that we were going to degrade the wheels a lot. In the end you leave wanting to have done better, “he settled.
