Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz was not able to make it to Q3 during qualifying for the Styrian Grand Prix, and the Spaniard says his team is suffering at the Red Bull Ring.
“I don’t think I would’ve placed higher with the last lap. It’s clear we’re suffering on this track, it’s difficult for us on the long straights. For me it’s being harder to drive. Let’s see if we can improve during the race,” he said.
“We haven’t had rhythm during this weekend, we’ve suffered to be on the top 10 of each session. The feelings haven’t been as good as they have been in other circuits, we’re far from McLaren and AlphaTauri. We hope to turn the situation around tomorrow.
“We have never been four-tenths off McLaren and AlphaTauri, and four-tenths in such a short circuit is a lot. We need to improve and it’s clear this circuit is not good for our car.”
