The Brazilian GP could not be more different for the pilots Toro Rosso. While Carlos Sainz took the exit in extremis after suffering mechanical problems on the warm up lap and ended up leaving on the second circle, Max Verstappen was one of the pilots more batalladores at Interlagos. The Dutch finished ninth and protagonist of several overtaking manoeuvres. His dispute with Sergio Pérez was a true reflection of their evolution. In spite of this, was not a career beneficial to Toro Rosso in his fight with Lotus by the sixth position of the Constructors ‘ World.
Max Verstappen showed in Brazil his talent. The manoeuvre to overtake Sergio Perez on the outside of the curve 1, where there had been only space, it served the Dutch to give the reason for Red Bull, who decided to make his debut in Formula 1 with 17 years, 5 months and 15 days. At the end of the race, was satisfied: “ I’ve enjoyed a lot the race! you Always want to score points, but we must be realistic and this is the maximum we could get today. On the straights we were slow and it’s hard to defend our position. We have had some good battles, I have not been able to rest even for a moment“.
Encouraged by his maneuver, Max Verstappen referred to those who criticized his landing in Formula 1: “I’ve had some critics, but for me it all it was to prove to them that they were wrong. I think I did well. It is the perfect way. I prefer not to talk with the press, I like it on the track because the response is more powerful“. The Dutch also added: “I Always try to give all I can, I don’t see any reason to change my style. I’m really enjoying it, I have made some good overtaking moves and I have added good points. I’m going every time mejor“.
Carlos Sainz joined in Interlagos his seventh abandonment of the season. Again, the mechanics of his Toro Rosso STR10 played him a trick. After the race, the Spanish lamented their fate: “it Is very frustrating not to be able to start the race. I wanted to do the practical output path to the grill, but the engine stopped suddenly. I was towed back to the pits to start the race from there, but the motor again stopped”. Sainz acknowledged that: “is Not an ideal situation for a rookie like me, since I need experience and finishing races, but now we can only look forward”.
Brazil has been the sixth abandonment of Carlos Sainz by mechanical breakdowns. A data crippling, although the spaniard takes it with philosophy: “I Think I’m in one of the years most unfortunate of my race, especially in relation to reliability. Despite this, thanks to the speed that I have had and some good racing, the sentiment is still positive.” To 29 points over his team-mate, carlos Sainz is looking to move page: “To see if it ends all that has to happen this season, and next year we have a year clean and no problems”.
