Uphill Qualifying for Carlos Sainz at the Abu Dhabi GP

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.

“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."
