The Ferrari driver and his long-term sponsor Estrella Galicia 0,0 reviewed the coming of the championship together on the eve of the Spanish Grand Prix.
CArlos Sainz spoke to the Spanish media at a telematics event co-hosted by the sponsor and Ferrari Estrella Galicia this morning. He reviewed The start of the championship and his first step as a Maranello driver, focused on appointing the family, the Spanish Grand Prix, this Sunday. “I am looking forward to participating in my first home race as a Ferrari driver. Although I hope I can get enough food, hey, that’s what I have to do. I have always been good at it. You have to see what has changed. Look, this may be very interesting. The core of F1 is still in Europe, and he continues to show that whether we can continue to compete in Spain or not is another matter.
What happened in Portugal. “This is what happened in Portugal. If 23 things happen, it will happen more times, and the sooner we go through these experiences and difficult games, the sooner I can learn from them and better understand how to do better. Good so that it didn’t pass. We tried many strategies, In my opinion, it is logical to use the medium. No one knows the difficulty. After that, everything seems easier. All this will make me stronger. “
“We are analysing why mid-size tires don’t work, our car is understeer, not Norris, and it certainly helps in my three-lap strong tires.”
What do you want to do to defeat Hamilton? The fact is that I am surprised that he can easily surpass F1 through Verstappen and Bottas, just like he has to speed up or do some special things, so I think he has a high evaluation of Mercedes, and no better Red Bull is faster now. His ability to be so fast in the game is amazing, and I admire and respect him. “
When will the first red podium appear? I don’t know when it will come. We have taken a step forward. If this year can come down and we can fight against it, it will be a battle, but I think it will take time. Perhaps the best option is 2022. .
The only lap I didn’t risk was the first lap in Bahrain. In Imola, I caught them in the comeback. I walked very fast in the rain. I also started in the qualifying in Portimão. Up. Maybe I don’t have the best highlights after the safety car, to see if I learn how to operate the car, battery, etc., but 100% as a Ferrari pilot still exists. Knowing how to do a degree and a perfect strategy, I still need a little integration. This is part of the study. There are 20 remaining. I am completing the deadline and making continuous progress.
Why is Leclerc so good on Saturday? I analyzed a lot of data and all F1 drivers did this by looking at each other’s skills to speed up. I don’t know much about Ferrari yet, but I spent extra telemetry time for this. If I did it in Portimao, it doesn’t mean I will repeat it now, I think I am still behind where I want. Charles is very fast and it is difficult to keep ahead of him.
Do you like sprint races? I don’t know if they will benefit me, but I like to participate in three more games, even if they are short, I will be better in the game. I feel that this is a very curious experiment. We will see how it works. This will be the beginning and first lap of many races, as well as high-speed races without saving tires.
