Sainz will start 3rd in Miami: “I will fight with Alonso”


Carlos Sainz came from great suffering raw. After losing all weekend at Leclerc in Australia and show a good level in the fight for the podium on MelbourneIn Azerbaijan the Spaniard was uncomfortable in his car between the walls. He is sure he will return to his best version in Miami, he showed it since Friday, and confirmed it this Saturday in qualifying. He will start this Sunday’s race in 3rd behind poleman ‘Checo’ Pérez and Fernando Alonso (2nd).

This will let you know that you can take advantage of that starting from the clean zone to win the position from Oviedo in the first metersbut in turn, aware that the Aston Martin should have a better racing speed because of how much it cares about its tires, the weak point of the red car.

The man from Madrid will fight for the podium on a very complicated track where his car, in the fast sections, has already given him some scares. Your partners Leclerc ended up against the wall in Free Practice 3 and in qualifying on a fast curve. Carlos saved the problems and he wants to close a solid weekend this Sunday with a good result where he once again showed his great mental strength.

“It’s like I’m in Australia. It shows that Baku was a strange weekend for me, probably the strangest and most difficult of my F1 career. Here I felt good since Free Practice 1 and had a rhythm in all free practice until qualy. I haven’t extracted all the performance from the car, I still have some left, but with the red flag and new tires it’s difficult to do everything right”, said the number ’55’ after qualifying.

“What has changed? A few things. But it’s a difficult sport to understand sometimes. It’s hard to understand because sometimes you go to the track and things work and they’re supposed to, and although we have sensors and data, sometimes we don’t know how to press the key. And after Baku we saw something that wasn’t right and we felt different again and I went back to the rhythm I had in Melbourne.”


“It is very difficult to drive here. I had moments in the high-speed sections, which prove that the car is very difficult. We have a very sensitive car, unstable perhaps at high speed, and that led to errors and accident. But both Charles and I are doing our best to push the car to the limit and put it in the position where it belongs, and this weekend it was right behind the Red Bulls, but in Q3 I couldn’t a good lap in that first stint. and we beat Alonso”.


“It’s going to be an interesting start, as always here. Last year I think there was a big difference between the inside and the outside at the start. We’ll be fighting the Aston Martins. Magnussen is fourth, it’s a strange thing, but sometimes he does it. I think with Fernando we will fight and Max, who will come back and surely overtake us because in race pace they are 6 or 8 tenths ahead, which after more than 50 laps is a big difference ”.


Sainz on DAZN: “I was better throughout the weekend, more comfortable, with a better rhythm. That kind of shows that Baklu was the exception and that it was a very fast weekend. In ‘qualifying’ in I think I can set a very good time but with the red flag it is not possible”.


Exit: “Just as intense as if they are English or whatever. You finally put your helmet on, trying to do your best. We will try to start on the clean side and I think that is positive. And try to pass them. Race speed gets you back to where you belong and speed is where we’re a bit weak in this Ferrari”.


“Charles? What a pity. He starts 7th and this is a weekend that Ferrari could be on the second row. This shows that our car is difficult. I made some mistakes in FP3 and he crashed twice this weekend at that point. It’s a car worth and you have to be very clear about it’s ‘worth'”.
