Carlos Sainz, P7 for the French GP, shines with another Q3

  • Carlos secures the seventh spot of the grid and leads the midfield with a 1:32.126.
  • He matches his best result in Qualifying since his arrival at Renault.
  • It is the eighth Q3 in a row for the Spaniard, who hasn’t missed a single one this year and today leads his team’s efforts.
  • Sunday’s race is set to be a one-stopper with risk of rain.



"I have a very good feeling, because we didn’t feel totally comfortable after Free Practice 3, but we managed to find a few tenths and we made it to Q3. I am very happy that we managed to get a P7 in Renault’s home event. I thank the team for all its work".

"It is tighter than ever with our rivals. Making it to Q3 was a matter of a few hundredths of a second, but I am really happy with the car and we manage to improve it bit by bit".

"Race-wise, the best strategy seems to be a one-stopper. I think tomorrow everyone will try to do that.  Weather forecasts look similar to today, so maybe it rains a little".
