Carlos Sainz, ninth at  the Italian GP: "There was nothing left"

  • The Spaniard of Renault  scored two points at Monza, the toughest track for the RS18.
  • It was a race of damage  limitation for Carlos, whose rear wing had more downforce than his rivals’.
  • He moved up to fifth at  the start and resisted against rivals with a higher Top Speed than him.
  • The World Championship  will travel now to Singapore, where Carlos was fourth in 2017.


"A good Sunday and a good  weekend overall. It was a tough race, just as we expected. It was tougher than  Qualifying because, with no DRS and no slipstream, we lacked Top Speed. But we  gave it all and I managed to put the car as high as possible on the standings".

"This weekend is really  important because we were ahead of faster rivals for quite a long time. Today  it was more difficult, but I am happy still because there was nothing left. I  found myself with the car after the weekend we had in Belgium, I felt more  comfortable and we were able to walk away with yet another Q3 and more points. I  am happy that I scored points in Monza. Now we will go to Singapore, another  circuit I really like. It brings back some good memories".
