F1, Ferrari: Carlos Sainz does not hide bitterness
It came from the victory at Silverstone
His race ended with just a few laps to go, with his engine gone. A pity for Carlos Sainz, who, after his victory in Silverstone, could have been on the podium in Austria as well.
The Ferrarista commented on the retirement this way, “Everything happened so suddenly. I could see the fire from the mirrors, but no commissioner was coming,” Sainz told Sky. “I was going backwards, then I decided to jump out of the car because there was already too much fire. It’s clear that reliability is an issue for us.”
“The car is fast, it was an easy one-two. Let’s look at the positives and analyze the negatives,” Sainz added. “I almost won in Monaco, I almost won in Canada, I won in Silverstone, second place here would have put me in a fight for the championship. But that’s the story of my season.”
