Carlos Sainz has been able to straighten it partially a weekend that had started so disturbing on Friday. Toro Rosso was one of the teams with more problems to build temperature in the tires and became a serious candidate to be eliminated in Q1 on Saturday, but both Sainz as Kvyat have been able to trace something of the flight in the classification.
Carlos Sainz was at the gates of Q3 even, but the penalty of three squares that you drag from Bahrain will be placed in the fourteenth position grill for the Sunday, reach points will be complicated with the equality reigning in the intermediate zone of the grill.
In any event, carlos Sainz, has shown satisfied with the result, especially after the beginning of Friday. “Is to be a weekend of a bit of roller coaster, with many ups and downs. Yesterday we lacked a bit of pace and today we have recovered a part of it, has been a good team-work, to recover what we have lost yesterday. In free 3 have gone really well, we knew that for the classification the Mercedes engines and company were going to have those two decimillas extra”, said, resigned the Spanish before the microphones of Movistar F1.
The workhorse in Sochi for all the teams is the temperature being a few tires that do not heat up to be too hard for a asphalt extremely smooth. “it Has been a classification difficult because it is very difficult to warm up the tires. Maybe my back was the first of the Q2, but I have found Hamilton and he has not left me to improve. The last lap has not been so good and has been reflected in the first two sectors, but happy because we won the other half of the grill, you can already see that everything is very close”, said Sainz, lamenting that his best lap could not be reflected in the times.
Carlos Sainz is aware that the race will be complicated, but still hopes to get some point that will allow him to not hang out in the classification with respect to the Force India and Williams. “it’s Going to be a really tough race for me in that sense, we know that here forward, being the race to a stop, it’s going to be extremely complicated, but I will try to do the same as always, a good start and the strategy and others, to go forward because at the minimum something goes wrong in front, ninth or 11th, should be our goal”, said the Spanish rider.
Daniil Kvyat was classified in the thirteenth position of the grid with a time of 20 thousandths slower than that of Carlos Sainz.
