  • Carlos Sainz covered 28 laps around the Yas Marina Circuit in the last Friday of the 2023 season.
  • In the second practice, the Ferrari race driver suffered a crash in Turn 3 that prompted a red flag period. Carlos is well amd his car will need some repairment work before Saturday.

"It’s obviously not been the Friday I wanted here in Abu Dhabi. We played a bit with the set up in FP1 and I was looking forward to FP2 after making some changes to the car. Unfortunately, I went over the big bump at the entry to turn 3 and I lost the car over it, bottoming out and hitting the http://barriers.It was a costly mistake and I’m sorry for the mechanics for giving them extra work today."

"I’m sure tomorrow we will be back on track and ready to go. It looks like the field is going to be tight so we can expect an interesting Qualifying."
