Problems for teammate, but expectations are high in Maranello.

Carlos Sainz raises Ferrari’s prospects for the Belgian Grand Prix, where teammate Charles Leclerc will have to serve a new grid penalty. The Spaniard, however, believes: “I can win even on my own against two cars,” he says in fact to ‘Sky Sport’.

If in fact Ferrari is fine-tuning a new hybrid part for its power unit, Sainz does not intend to lower the bar of his ambitions: “I don’t know anything, there is no confirmation as far as I am concerned. But even if I am in front alone, I will aim for victory. Even if I have to fight alone against two Red Bulls.”

The Spaniard, moreover, faces a bad personal statistic at Spa, where he has often been fast on Friday and Saturday then found various misfortunes in the race. “Already I am coming from a season of ups and downs, but compared to the first races the improvements have been remarkable. We have understood where to intervene, and we have done so,” Sainz notes. “I then have always been fast here, and before Formula 1 I always collected my best results. Red Bull on the fast straights is fearsome, but with this Ferrari I too can win.”
