Carlos Sainz admitted that the British Grand Prix was mentally one of the most difficult races in his career.

Sainz won his first F1 race at Silverstone last Sunday. However, it was no easy feat for the Spaniard.

During the race, he gave up the lead to Max Verstappen after going off the track. Then, he had to let Charles Leclerc pass because of team orders. In the end, Sainz got the soft tires during the Safety Car period and overtook his teammate at the restart to get the victory.

“Mentally, it was probably one of the toughest races,” Sainz commented on the race.

“There was so much going on on the radio and trying to manage both the gaps to Charles and Lewis [Hamilton], and at the beginning with Max there was a lot of fighting going on.

“I wasn’t completely comfortable with the car, I was struggling a lot with understeer in the high-speed corners, opening the front left tire which was taking a lot of pace out of me.

“I kept it cool, kept believing, kept within reach all the time and suddenly when the opportunity came, I grabbed it.”
