Carlos Sainz has said his victory at the British Grand Prix is one he “will never forget” after defending from multiple drivers throughout the race.

The Spanish driver overcame different obstacles throughout the race – from team orders telling him to allow Leclerc by, to attacks from drivers behind him. However, Sainz remained strong and took the victory at the finish line.

“I don’t know what to say, it’s amazing. First race win in 150 races later with Ferrari in Silverstone. I can’t ask for more,” Sainz said.

“It’s a very special day. A day that I will never forget. A very special weekend in general,” he added.

“It was not easy, I struggled quite a bit with the balance, especially on the first stint on the mediums,” he explained about his race strategy. “Max forced us to push a lot through the high speed [areas]. I opened the front left. Even with all of that, I kept believing that it could still happen.

“Then, all of a sudden, the Safety Car gave me an opportunity to get back in it. You can imagine the nerves at the start, getting it down and then the win.”
