During the United States Grand Prix, Carlos Sainz started from pole position, but just as he entered the first corner, after being overtaken by Max Verstappen, the Spaniard was hit by George Russell and was left out of the race. The same thing happened to him at the Japanese Grand Prix, so he has run out of points in the last two races.
Mexico, the place of revenge
However, at the Mexican Grand Prix he is confident that he will come back strong at the Mexican Grand Prix, but he explained to the media, including Sopitas, that he does not feel tI’m comfortable with the car and that explains some of the misfortune at Austin and Suzuka.
“There are sensations, in the first laps it shows and obviously I’m not happy, because just I need to do races with this car and to have lost the last two, and to have missed four this year is definitely a shame, and it is something that must be tried so that it does not happen again”, mentioned Spanish.
Russell stated that it was unfair to be penalized in that race with five seconds. “He must be the only one (who thinks like that) in the whole paddock.”
Sainz enjoys the atmosphere of the Mexican Grand Prix
Likewise, he said he was happy to return to Mexico, where although he is not local, he indicated that as a Hispanic pilot, he feels the warmth of the people and the change in the environment, in addition to also enjoying the conditions of Mexico City, located more than two thousand meters above sea level.
“The height of Mexico City changes some things, among them the grip of the tires, I love running in Mexico. The Mexican fans also change the atmosphere, of course, you feel more the support and affection of the people, Y the fact that they want Checo to win also makes me feel very good”Said the Ferrari steering wheel.
Sainz also shared that one of the aspects that he enjoys the most about Mexico is the food and the atmosphere of the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez. “Eat, enjoy the city and the fans, the kindness, how they welcome us every year… I always have fun”, declared.
