Ferrari, Carlos Sainz tough: "The nothing". And Vasseur makes mea culpa

It's also been a Canadian Grand Prix to forget for Carlos Sainz, who like Charles Leclerc, stranded by the engine, è was forced to retire from the Montreal race after a spin. The Spaniard after Saturday’s disastrous qualifying tried in vain to climb up the rankings but è always remained outside the Top10. "Qualifying condemned us to a race in the middle of the pack. The grip we’ve never found it", are the words of the Ferrari driver.

"Né on the dry, né especially in the wet we found the right confidence. We struggled so much and the race made it worse. Not only that, in the final I also made a mistake that forced me to retire. Overall, a Grand Prix conducted in the nothing".

Ferrari team principal Frederic Vasseur to Sky Sport commented on the nightmarish weekend of the Rosse: "The rain did not damage us, but we damaged ourselves. We did not perform as we should in qualifying and then there were reliability problems in the race. On Saturday we lacked pace and we found out what that was. Let’s turn the page and think about Barcelona".

On the retirements of the two drivers: "Leclerc had an engine problem, in the control area. We will have to verify everything. His race in fact was affected by this situation, given the 8 tenths per lap lost. Sainz did not è start well and then had a consistent damage in the fight with Ricciardo. So, also for him little to do".
