Carlos Sainz aiming for a recovery drive at the Turkish GP after changing the power-unit of his Ferrari

Istanbul Park (5,338 metres, 14 corners, in the calendar since 2005)

  • The Turkish GP returns to the calendar for the second year in a row following the COVID-19 pandemic, which has forced Formula 1 to reschedule some of its races.
  • This weekend’s race in Istanbul Park is the last European round of the season, which will now move to America and the Middle East for the final rounds.
  • Carlos will receive Ferrari’s latest power-unit upgrade, meaning that on Sunday he will start the race from the back of the grid.
  • The weather forecast suggests it could rain throughout the weekend, although the Spaniard believes that he will be able to recover positions even without the rain.
