Video: Sainz's Friday in Miami ends in an accident

With the ghosts of the last two consecutive retirements due to getting stuck in the gravel in Australia and Imola, Carlos Sainz faced the Miami Grand Prix with the intention of making up for it and achieving his first victory in Formula 1.

After a scare at high speed in the first free practice sessions, the man from Madrid finished in sixth position, seeing how his teammate and current world leader, Charles Leclerc, dominated at the premiere of this track.


That is why Sainz pressed from the start in the second test session in the American city, and in one of his laps he made a mistake that sent him directly to the wall. His F1-75 ended up against the protections of the most twisty area of the track, causing him to lose time to learn and collect information, as well as losing much of the confidence necessary to face this event.

The Spaniard was in the first position thanks to a time of 1:30.964 with medium tires, but his desire to be faster sent him to the garage early with only 9 laps completed. The one from Ferrari will have to rely on the data obtained by his partner to configure the car that has a different front wing from the one they wore in Imola.

The driver from Madrid did not even want to look when he got out of the car once he was aware that his Friday day would end there, and he returned to the pitlane with his head down, although he hopes that nothing will fail so that he can be present in the third free practice session on Saturday and , above all, in the classification that will decide the starting positions of the race.

The battle for pole position will be crucial to define the first winner in the history of the Miami Grand Prix, where Carlos Sainz wishes to put his name in gold letters.
