The Spanish driver had to leave in the Austrian Grand Prix
Carlos Sainz: "I was really enjoying it out there today, I was having a lot of fun, especially after those first few laps where everything went perfectly. I was just focused on moving forward, targeting the rivals in front. We were doing a very good race but unfortunately, after the pit-stop I ran out of power all of a sudden and my race finished there. It's very disappointing, especially because we had managed to get into the top ten after only a couple of laps and I was very motivated. I think we could've achieved a positive result if this hadn't happened, we certainly had the pace for it!".
Franz Tost (Team Principal): "The race started well for us today. Both drivers managed to do a good start, especially Carlos had a great first lap and moved up to P9. Carlos' pace was also good, but unfortunately he had a technical problem which we now have to analyse. Hopefully we can prevent this from happening at the next race in Silverstone. I would also like to say that the car worked very well thanks to the upgrades we brought here, so hopefully we can continue improving on the performance side and finish the race in the points with both cars next time out."
