Carlos Sainz has commented on a dramatic Russian GP, where he managed to finish 3rd.

Why it matters: Sainz achieved his second podium of the year, after chaotic last few laps.


  • Sainz finished in P3 after starting the race at the front row in P2.
  • The Spaniard was one of the first drivers to pit for the hard tire set.

What he had to say:

  • “First of all I got a good launch, the priority was not to lose position and I managed to do a send into Lando in turn 2 which worked perfectly.”
  • “We had to go very early into the hards, a lot of management going on, and then the rain came at the worst possible time because my hard tires were going awaen we box, did the right call at the right time and managed to get P3. Good race in general.”
