4th in the Monza Grand Prix last Sunday, Carlos Sainz Jr is, like almost everyone, frustrated with the outcome of this race. The Spaniard believes that Daniel Ricciardo’s car should have been withdrawn earlier, he who is convinced that he would have finished on the podium, ahead of George Russell.

Last Sunday, during Monza Grand Prixthe decision of the FIA caused more talk than the victory of Max Verstappen. Even though the world championship leader has won the last five races, the end of this Italian Grand Prix under safety car took over and created a small controversy. Beyond george russell who made his displeasure known, carlos sainz Jr. was also frustrated by this decision.

“We have to improve as a sport”

For me, the right compromise is not having to wait five or six laps to get a car off the track. For me, we are too slow to clear an F1. I don’t know if the race director could have done more “, valued sainz in comments relayed by Nextgen Auto. ” The safety car should have been taken out earlier already. For me, the whole procedure was slow and we have to improve as a sport. The red flag? Yes it’s better for show but the right compromise would be to find ways to move stopped F1s off the track faster adds the Spanish driver.

Sainz convinced he would have finished on the podium

If ever the race hadn’t taken such a turn, Carlos Sainz Jr. is sure he would have finished on the podium. ” I was much faster than George Russell. I had nothing to lose. The simulation indicated that I would have made it on the last lap. I can assure you that if I had arrived in his wheels before the last lap, I would have attacked because after 15 overtakings to recover, I knew where to attack and how to brake. George was on hard tires and I was on soft, I had a lot more grip under braking… I would have attacked. But we will never know. I think I would have been on the podium. This climb was my best race of the year “, assures the pilot Ferrarisure of his strength.
