GP Bahrain: Carlos Sainz: “There is a good chance of scoring”



Carlos Sainz could not repeat the pass to the Q3 to get in Australia and will start tomorrow in the eleventh position of the starting grid for the Bahrain Grand Prix, second round of the World Championship of Formula 1 to be held tomorrow at the circuit of Sakhir. The Spanish will come out just behind his team-mate, dutchman Max Verstappen. They both fell eliminated in the second phase of the classification, penalized by the decision of Toro Rosso who both used two sets of superblandos in Q1, something that is revealed unnecessary and that sentenced them to have a single game for the Q2.

In that round, Sainz, who had overtaken Verstappen in Q1, was unable to improve his time; in fact, worsened by a tenth after committing a small error in the curves 9 and 10, perhaps the most complicated of the circuit. That did improve was his partner, enough to get the pole position by a scant 44 thousandths of a second. Carlos acknowledged that the lack of tires was crucial, but was confident in being able to get a good result in the race at the same time that he pulled out his discontent with the rating system.

“With the tires superblandos that we had for Q2 it was very difficult to move on to Q3, we did everything possible but it is what it is. You have chosen the tires with another system of classification is something that conditions and you’ve already seen that nine minutes from the end we were out of the car. But tomorrow will be more fun and we have a good opportunity to score points; you have to concentrate and I’m sure we can make a good career”.
