Saturday, 25 November 2023:
-    Free Practice 3: P20, 1:27.713, 29 laps
-    Qualifying: P16, 1:24.738, 6 laps

  • Carlos Sainz is set for a recovery drive at the Abu Dhabi GP after a tough Qualifying in which he could only finish sixteenth.
  • The Ferrari race driver was compromised by the mileage lost on Friday in Free Practice 2 and a technical issue that was discovered in his car after Saturday’s Free Practice 3.
  • In Qualifying, the Spaniard used two sets of Soft tyres, but in his last attempt (1:24.738) he left the pits late due to an issue with the front wing and then he encountered traffic in the exit of the pits and in the second sector.

QUOTES:
“Difficult day for me. We found ourselves in a challenging situation leaving the pits late due to an issue with the front wing. Then the traffic during the push lap didn’t help and I didn’t manage to put a clean lap together, so my bad. So far it has been a tricky weekend but the race is tomorrow and I will push to recover and fight to bring important points to the team. It’s not over yet."
