Carlos Sainz: "We should enjoy some opportunities in this circuit"

A good result in Hungary, the best possible way to start the summer-break

Mogyoród, 26 July 2018.- Carlos Sainz has arrived at the Hungaroring circuit, the traditional home of the Hungarian Grand Prix and the last round of the Formula 1 World Championship prior to the summer-break.

The Hungaroring brings good memories to Carlos, who has put together solid performances and scored points in his last two visits. It is one of the most downforce demanding tracks on the calendar and also one of the hottest events in the entire year, with temperatures expected to rise over 30 degrees throughout the weekend.

Renault Sport Formula One Team will provide its two drivers with the latest front-wing, which ran for the very first time last week in Hockenheim. It will be Carlos’ first encounter with this development, which will arrive along some smaller improvements. Because overtaking is difficult, Qualifying is very important. It is like Monaco without walls.

Carlos likes this circuit and will try his best to score a good result in Hungary before enjoying a well-deserved summer-break.



"This is the last race before the summer-break, so we will give our very best to go on holidays feeling good. It is an old-school circuit and, because of its nature, it should provide us with more opportunities than other tracks. It is hard to put together a perfect lap. Doing a good first sector is a positive sign. Then come some fast-flowing corners, which are really fin. We did great last year and this season I want to continue like this. I think it is one of the best opportunities of the year to achieve a good result, so we will go for it".

"For this Grand Prix I will have to new front-wing along with other bits that Renault has brought to the Hungaroring. There are many slow corners in this track, which is good for us. The goal would be getting to the points with both cars and then go on holidays as the leaders of the midfield".

Free Practice for the Hungarian GP will be held tomorrow Friday. The first session will start at 11:00 local time and the second one at 15:00. You can stay tuned to www.carlossainz.es and Carlos’ social media channels to follow his progress.
