Carlos Sainz not satisfied with the weekend

If Charles Leclerc walks away from Imola with a podium and some more certainty, Carlos Sainz, on the other hand, represents the other side of the coin at Ferrari: the Spaniard finished fifth in an essentially anonymous race, in which he suffered, at the finish line, almost 15 seconds behind his teammate. At the microphones of 'Sky Sport' the son of art expressed his bitterness.

"We lengthened the first stint and it wasn’t è the right choice – explained Sainz, who was also fifth in the overall standings, in the previous two GPs, in China and Miami, and in the respective Sprint Races -. I have to be honest, however, I didn’t have the pace to do much more, and I think if I had gone out in front of Piastri anyway he would have had more to overtake me".

"I’m not happy with the way things went in the second half of the race,” the Spaniard added.

In general è it was the whole weekend that was complicated. We also paid for a couple of problems that emerged on Saturday, we have to frame them and erase them ahead of the Monte Carlo" race.

That of the Principality è a circuit where Sainz has achieved interesting results, over the years: in both 2021 and 2022, in fact, he finished in second place, placing behind Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez, respectively. In 2023 è he was less lucky: the Spaniard in fact finished the Monaco GP in eighth place, far from the top.
