Michael Schumacher, Damon Hill, Jacques Villeneuve… All, world champions in the Grand Prix of Canada in 1999 and ended his race against the wall that lurks at the exit of the chicane leading to the start / finish straight of the circuit Gilles Villeneuve, known since then as the “wall of champions”. The same point at which Carlos Sainz has seen truncated their options for a good classification.
In his first attempt during the Q2, the Toro Rosso’s Spanish-language hit with his right rear wheel against the wall. After the collision, his car was fired back towards the outside of the track, and a private address, it slid through the grass until he stopped just before the finish line.
had Already touched the wall with the rear wheel several times this weekend, but this time the car has been turned inward and I have not been able to do anything. Has been an error: in a circuit like this, you know that a calculation error can cost you a very expensive. To get into Q3 was very, very complicated, I have tried to put that little extra we were lacking, I’ve spent a little and I touched the wall.
The accident did that Sainz was the last rated among the pilots who had agreed to the Q2. However, the sanction of three posts that weighed on his team-mate, Daniil Kvyat (who had signed the thirteenth best time), will allow the Spanish to gain a position and starting from the fifteenth square of a grid that will lead to the Mercedes of Hamilton and Rosberg. A race that, according to the madrid, we will not disgustaría that out in the wet. “I’m leaving too far back, and the only possibility is the strategy. What rain? I would not mind”.
