GP Europe: Sainz: “I have lost confidence in the braking”


The high temperatures that were recorded during the day of Saturday
in Baku have led to the performance of the cars vary
depending on the circumstances. That seems to have been one of the
causes by which Carlos Sainz has not had a day so positive
as the Friday. According to the pilot himself,
yesterday to today we have changed the brakes and today was not going like yesterday.
We have to analyze why. We have gone back to change them after the
3 and have not gone better. There is that analyze. From the morning we
had problems with the brakes, how to
were warmed. I have
lost a lot of confidence yesterday in the braking
. I don’t know what they were
the forecasts of Brembo (manufacturer
of the brakes),
I don’t know if it has to do with our problem. What is clear is
the car was not like that yesterday, both on the braking, releasing
the brake. Discontent for this, but that does not mean that tomorrow
you can not do well”
recognized hopeful
before the microphones of
Movistar F1.

The traffic nor favored
the Spanish, a badly hurt many riders in a circuit
so narrow in some areas. “We have
calculated pretty bad times in which to make the fastest lap,
we have always found a lot of traffic.
I had the same feeling with the car in braking and we have seen that
it’s a circuit of hard braking. I’m
discontent because we expected a little more,
but when you have so many problems in a classification with that of
Baku, with the walls so close, it is difficult to do well”

In the race everything is possible

The race, however, will be
long and, surely, very lively. The long straight will
a wide variety of advancements and it is expected that there would be enough
incidents in the race. “Morning
we can choose tires, but I don’t think that mark
a big difference here. It is
likely that people prefer to go to a stop. Temperatures
at the time of the race
incite to this, so to
see what we cooked tomorrow.
Exit to stop and see where we end. If
tomorrow we just in the points, I’ll be much more happy today,
do not throw in the towel”
he said the Spanish,
hopeful of making a comeback similar to that of Canada, although
on this occasion, will leave several positions ahead.

Daniil Kvyat, for his part, took advantage of the good feelings with the car and your ability to get rid of the traffic in order to qualify for Q3 in brilliant way. “it Was a good day, I am very happy! We got several laps clean, something that is not easy to do here and a qualifying session trouble-free was what we needed. I have found myself becoming more confident with the car and start tomorrow from the seventh position is a positive result”, said the Russian, who had long need of a good result with that to gain confidence.
