Carlos Sainz, fifth in a tricky Emilia Romagna GP marked by strategy

Sunday, 19 May 2024
- Race: P5, 63 laps

  • Carlos Sainz finished fifth in the Emilia Romagna GP, where strategy played a key role given how hard it was to overtake on track.
  • The Ferrari race driver started fourth and defended this position throughout the entire first stint from McLaren’s Oscar Piastri.
  • When the pit window opened, Piastri pitted four laps earlier than Carlos and undercut him for fourth place.
  • In the second half of the race, Carlos secured fifth place despite not feeling comfortable in the car.

“I cannot be happy after what was a tough race for me. I need to review it with the team to understand why I’ve not been comfortable with the car both in qualifying and today pace-wise".

“We will regroup tomorrow to start preparing for Monaco and hopefully we can get a better result there. The fight at the top is starting to get tight and we need to continue pushing".
