GP Mexico: carlos Sainz: “From the start we had all kinds of problems”


The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez has not smiled to the interests of Torro Rosso and in particular of Carlos Sainz. The Spanish rider took an exit complicated and mechanical problems almost from the second round. This fact coupled with the lack of pace and a penalty of five seconds per lead to the grass to Fernando Alonso during the output they have finished ruining the career of pilot in madrid. In the end, Sainz has crossed the finish line in the sixteenth position with a return loss and overtaken by the Sauber of Felipe Nasr.

Carlos Sainz took quite philosophy, whenever the race in Mexico has been almost a torture for the Spanish pilot:From the start we had all kinds of problems. On the brakes, on the other hand… I Knew it was going to be a difficult race and if to this we add the lack of pace by trying to go to a stop when it was almost impossible. All this has put us against and we’ve gone backwards“.

. If you

these problems and the penalty, it is clear that we were not going to do anything today“.

to this sanction, and the maneuver at the output with Alonso, Sainz explained:
“Still not how it has been, I have to ask. If it has been in the
output, I think I have seen him later when I was going through the left. I think
has gone to the grass, but these are things that happen that the output does not
room for everyone”
. The pilot Toro Rosso said in the second instance:
“In the output I don’t know where you are going each one. I only know that I’ve looked at the
straight I looked in the rear view mirror to see who was behind it, and I have seen
Fernando on the grass. I don’t know how it has been or what has happened“.
