Sainz, against the wall of Monaco after a good day


He starred in the almost round sun. The almost wanted start in Monaco. Carlos Sainz led Free Practice 1 of the 2023 F1 Monaco GP flawlessly, and proved a clear contender for pole in Free Practice 2 on soft rubber. He commanded the time table from the start, looking more comfortable and confident than his teammate Leclerc. But with 16 minutes left, rolling with used rubber, looking for the limits of such a complex track, he ended up in the wall.

The Spaniard hit the inside wall of the entrance to the pool chicane with his right front tire. So, he broke his tire and became a passenger up to the outer protections of the rear curve.

However, this shouldn’t ruin your big day. His teammate Leclerc finally got the second position from him after several attempts, with an hour achieved later, with the fastest track and at that moment Sainz showed that he was faster that speed. He finished 3rd on the day, 0″107 behind the best time of Verstappen, who also made his time later than the Spaniard, in theory better asphalt conditions.

Carlos Sainz continues to be serious and is a very clear contender for pole position. The accident can only take away some of his confidence, an important element on this track for qualifying this Saturday, a ‘qualification’ that in Monaco decides more than half of the race because on Sunday it will be very difficult to overtake on the track. Now, Carlos will need to regain the confidence he had in Free Practice 3 on Saturday to continue the attack for pole position in the following qualifying session.

The Spaniard had already argued with the same inner wall in Free Practice 1 and was too close in Free Practice 2. It was better for the track to give him this warning on Friday than on Saturday, the important day in the Principality, where everything at stake
