Carlos Sainz struggles on Softs but seals P5 for the Emilia Romagna GP Starting Grid

Saturday, 18 May 2024
- Free Practice 3: P3, 1:16.067, 22 laps
- Qualifying: P5, 1:15.233, 20 laps

  • Carlos Sainz will fight in the Emilia Romagna GP from the fifth place of the Starting Grid after a Qualifying session that was compromised by the lack of confidence on the Soft tyre.
  • The Ferrari race driver made it through Q1 (1:16.015) on Medium tyres, which meant that he had two sets available both for Q2 (1:15.512) and Q3 (1:15.233).
  • The Spaniard didn’t feel comfortable in the Soft compound, but he expects a step forward in the race, where the harder options will play a crucial role. The goal is to make up ground.

“We knew that coming here it would be very tight. I struggled to be consistent with the Soft and didn’t do my best Quali to be honest, but we are still in a decent position to fight tomorrow and, although overtaking in Imola is not easy, it can also be a race full of opportunities and we need to be fully focused”.

"We’ll fight until the checkered flag to offer our tifosi a great race and hopefully thank their support with a good team result!".
