Drafting sports, 2 Aug (EFE) .- The Spanish Carlos Sainz (McLaren) deserved better fortune in the British Formula One Grand Prix, in which he stroked the fourth position, although he left the Silverstone circuit without any point for a puncture when I was already facing the last meters of the route.
Until then, the Spaniard was signing an impeccable performance. He started from seventh position, but was soon fifth thanks to a spectacular start.
“In turns 3 and 4 I have not risked,” he told Movistar F1, “but in turn 6 I was able to pass Lance Stroll inside.” “Then I saw that Lando Norris was running in and I passed outside at turn 7,” he analyzed.
Carlos Sainz won another position in the race and dreamed of being fourth.
“If it weren’t for the puncture, I’d be fourth and celebrating it,” he assumed.
The McLaren rider does not blame himself at this Grand Prix, the fourth in a season in which he feels he is not having any luck. He was fifth in the Austrian Grand Prix, ninth in the Hungarian and Styrian Grand Prix and thirteenth in this Great Britain Grand Prix.
“Luck is not smiling at us in this first half of the season. It is a chore, because even the puncture was making a good race,” he lamented.
Sainz explained that being fourth had “gone one lap.” Instead, he leaves Silverstone empty with his thirteenth place.
“From one lap to another the tire has said enough and we have stayed there,” he said.
The Madrilenian rescues, however, the “good feelings” of the weekend.
“Compared to the first three races, I have been more comfortable with the car. I have had better feelings and it is a shame that there is no result to prove it,” he said.
