Carlos Sainz last Sunday he started the Styrian Grand Prix in 12th position on medium tires and finished the race in sixth position with only one stop. The overcut scored with the yellow-banded tires was decisive, stopping decisively after the pit stop of the direct opponents who preceded him. A comeback based on pace (Pierre Gasly and George Russell retired in front of him) and on the work done in Maranello by the men in red who last weekend set up the set-up to excel on Sunday at the expense of qualifying Saturday. Paul Ricard’s setback was a hard blow to take and the performance in Styria was a very good reaction.

As pointed out by the Spanish driver, now at Ferrari we need to find the ideal compromise between performance on a single lap and pace over race distance: “We are working and analyzing the data available. We will try some solutions this weekend to see if we can improve the pace in qualifying – the words of Carlos Sainz to the microphones of Sky Sport F1 – we know this circuit is not really suitable for us, those three consecutive straights make the lap almost 80% with the throttle open and we know it’s not our forte. However, this too is an aspect on which to work in view of the future ”.
