Carlos Sainz finishes twelfth at the German GP demoted by a penalty

  • The Spaniard crossed the line in tenth place, but a 10-second penalty demoted him two spots.
  • He switched to intermediate tyres when the rain intensity was at its peak. Sadly, it was one lap earlier Vettel’s accident, which meant he couldn’t benefit from the Safety-Car as his rivals did when they changed tyres.
  • Carlos did a good start, but he lost positions after being stuck in traffic in two key moments during the opening lap.



"It was a very weird race. You never knew the position you were in. We will have to check and analyse the reasons why we lost so many positions during the Safety-Car, because, had the story been different, we could have tried something in the closing laps. We lost many positions during the pit-stop window".

"We have to analyse what happened during the Safety-Car, also with the unlapping cars. The penalty is even better".

 "I did a good start, but two cars sandwiched me and I ended up losing. Still we were fighting for points up until the pit-stop window. Now we must move on and think on the Hungarian GP. I am really looking forward to it, really looking forward to racing with the latest aerodynamic package and having a clean weekend".
