GP Hungary: Carlos Sainz: “we do Not know from where do we get the rhythm”


were Not all with them after the classification and less
after the third free at Toro Rosso. However, the day of the Sunday has
left a pleasant ‘surprise’ in the team of Faenza as
Carlos Sainz has
managed to finish eighth after a solid career
in which only Räikkönen by
pace and Alonso in the output have been able to overtake him. The proper role of Sainz has
contrasted with
the discreet Sunday of Daniil Kvyat. The Russian pilot has
finished sixteenth after completing two pit stops and be disciplined with
five seconds for exceeding the speed in the pitlane in one of them.

In the usual playpen, Carlos Sainz analyzed:
McLaren come out very well and today has been confirmed. Always have those two tenths
in the output.
To Button, I’ve managed to hold on, but to Fernando it was
. This was not the time to gamble on turn 1 or 2. Pace
similar to them, which surprises me because we did not have that rhythm in the free.
I’m pretty happy. When you go out sixth you don’t want to finish eighth, always
you want to improve,
but in the end you’re behind two Ferrari, two Red bulls, two
Mercedes, and McLaren
. We are satisfied”.

regardless of its result, Sainz returned to show his surprise at the level reached by the STR11 this weekend: we don’t know where we’ve got the rhythm. We were very much back in the free 3 and suddenly in qualifying and race we managed to be strong. I expected a performance in the middle between the rating level and the free. We have held the eighth position, for me it is a very solid, especially looking at the place where we were on Friday and the weekend that we have done in general.


Bottas has always been under control. In no time I asked on the radio where he was because he had located. I was more worried about Fernando and see if down the rate at some point in time, but, as always, is like a clock. It is very difficult to beat any tenth” analyzed a Carlos Sainz who has had a career a lot more stable than a Daniil Kvyat who has suffered in the back fighting almost the whole race with the Renault, Haas and Suaber. In this aspect, Daniil Kvyat if that has suffered from the lack of pace that he feared Sainz.

Be that as it may, Sainz and Kvyat are already looking to the front as in
the GP of Germany STR11 will receive its first major package of updates, such and
as explained by the pilot himself in madrid: “In Germany, we should go
much better because we are going to make the first improvement of the year. We are with the
same car from the first race and now in Germany we will get something.
I don’t know what or how it will affect our performance, but to see if we can win
that push to keep behind the McLaren
