Carlos Sainz in Singapore Grand Prix Formula 1 day 20

More points for spanish driver

Carlos Sainz: "It was certainly an eventful race! I had a good start, some very good pace at the beginning and the strategy was looking great. Suddenly, during the restart of the race after the first Safety Car, my gearbox went into neutral and I found myself at the back of the field. Then I started to overtake and have a lot of fun, climbing back up to P9, behind Max, who was pushing Perez. After seeing him try to overtake him for 10 laps, I just thought maybe I could try during one lap, and if I hadn't been able to I would've given the position back to Max. I just wanted my chance, but he decided not to give it to me. It's something we need to talk about as a team, but overall I have to say that I'm very happy to have finished in the points again! Let's keep on pushing, the next race in Japan is only seven days away!"
