With a Belgian Grand Prix 2021 which will go down in history for the continuous postponements and suspensions of the race, the latter will certainly not be remembered for the spectacle experienced on the track, indeed. With only two laps played behind the Safety Car, the result of the race thus effectively rewarded the positions conquered yesterday by the drivers in qualifying.
With the final score halved, there was no lack of disappointment from many of the protagonists who would have liked to battle each other in that of Spa-Francorchamps, starting with Carlos Sainz. However, the Spanish driver of the Ferrari commented a Sky Sports his favorable opinion to decisions taken by the Race Direction: “It’s a shame, but they’ve been corrected – number 55 explained – the conditions were too difficult, nothing could be seen. When you go at 300 km / h and you see nothing, you cannot drive under these circumstances, because you risk too much, even more so on a track where big accidents can happen ”.
In any case, the Iberian rider did not agree with the system for assigning world championship points, halved as required by the regulation in these rare events: “I really don’t think they should be given for a race that never took place – analyzed Sainz – for my half point I’m not happy, I don’t deserve it. The only aspect I could agree on was to try to go out to evaluate the track situation, but we saw that we could not drive. For sure – concluded the new Ferrari driver – not to follow the rules and get the points in this way, because in this way they don’t have to be awarded “.
