F1 | Sainz: “It was very hard”

Carlos Sainz finished sixth with the Ferrari in the Italian GP. Satisfied with the result, on paper, but not with the sensations behind the wheel


Carlos Sainz finished sixth with the Ferrari in the Italian GP. Satisfied with the result, on paper, but not with the sensations behind the wheel on a very difficult weekend for the Maranello team.

“We saved the weekend, but it was very hard. I have not been comfortable in the race at any time, sliding and skidding, and our top speed was not the best to defend ourselves. We were close to the podium, but at no point did I feel capable of having the speed and confidence to attack it. A bit of anger, but it is what it is, “he said on television.

“If before coming to Monza they tell us that we finished fourth and sixth, perhaps we signed it. But given the difficulties in the race, and that top speed is lacking, and that the podium is relatively close, it is annoying not to be able to go for it. No have the ability. There was no confidence, nor did I get it back after yesterday’s coup. And we will have to analyze it, “he added.
