Carlos Sainz admitted that he might get more power unit components and as a result new grid penalties for the French GP.

Sainz was given a 10-place grid drop for the French GP after having received his third control electronics of the season.

When asked whether more engine penalties are expected, Sainz replied: “We will see. I mean, I took 10 [places], so you can expect what’s coming next.”

Sainz had a strong start to the race weekend at the Circuit Paul Ricard. He was 3rd in FP1 and topped the FP2 standings.

“It was definitely a positive Friday,” the Ferrari driver commented on his performance.

“I didn’t do many laps on the short run, on the low fuel, but every lap that I did was super competitive. It shows that [with] steps we’re taking, it’s going in the right direction.

“[I was] focusing more on the long runs, because I’m not going to be in that fight for pole position, given the amount of penalties.”
