Eyes ahead for Carlos Sainz

After 11 races, Sainz has 83 points to his name. While happy with the pace in his Ferrari, Sainz wants to get ahead of his podium finishes. He analyzed the latter half of his start, saying, “I feel that recently that has got a lot better and as soon as I start to put weekends together, I’m going to start being a lot more consistent and not only fast.”

In his debut season with the Italian outfit, Sain has got accustomed to the car very quickly as well. He confesses to his earlier struggles-finding it difficult to put the entire weekend together.

“There was a lot of speed, but very rarely could I put the whole qualifying, race strategy, tyre management, starts and score a very good result thanks to it.”

He added, “The speed has been there since race one, which immediately made me a bit more relaxed about it, I knew I was very fast straight away with this car and I could just improve with the other things, you know, which is just getting the whole weekend together.”
