Carlos Sainz believes McLaren could have the faster car at the Jeddah circuit.


  • Sainz admitted it was not easy to outscore McLaren in the fight for third place in the constructors’ championship.
  • The Spaniard believes McLaren may beat Ferrari at the Saudi Arabian race.

What he said:

  • “We need to outscore them by four or five points, I think, this weekend, which, looking at recent results might seem like a likely scenario. But we need to remind ourselves that McLaren have been in the fight in every race that we’ve outscored them.”
  • “It’s not like we were on an easy route to outscore them before their trouble in the last three races, so it’s been really tight still; we’ve just managed to make less mistakes, put everything together with both cars and outscore them. But I feel like here they might have the faster car and they will bring the fight down to Abu Dhabi, probably.”
