Sainz disappointed with Hungary Q3 lap

Sainz disappointed

Carlos Sainz, Ferrari Formula 1 driver, expressed strong resentment for missing out on the pole. He believes his lap tailing Russell’s is “nothing special” at Hungarian Grand Prix.

Sainz marked the pole sitting time after the first Q3 run on the Hungaroring. His team mate Charles Leclerc failed to marked better time.

Sainz then improved his time, seemingly cement pole. However, his efforts for second pole remain unfruitful. His efforts were laid to rest by Mercedes’ George Russell. The maiden pole for George took fans by shock.

Sainz expressed his frustration for failing to secure pole position. He lost the pole position by 0.044 seconds and he remain unimpressed by his lap.

“Probably that Q3 run two lap was nothing special. It was not good enough for pole. So I’m also a bit disappointed because with the perfect lap, for sure I would have been up there,” Sainz said.

“But I guess George did a very good lap today and he deserves that one. So, congrats.”

Sainz had struggled so far to beat his team-mate Leclerc. In a bid to beat his Monacan team-mate, he tried to adjust his car to his liking. He claims his qualifying performance shows he is heading toward the right direction.

“I felt like today I had everything more or less under control through the whole qualifying,” he explained.

“We keep making steps in the right direction, which keep getting me more comfortable and more together with the car. And today there were some good laps.”

Russell recalls his struggles during the Friday practice. He showed no upbeat about his car pace. He claims he would be shocked if he could keep up the same pace of qualifying during the Sunday race at Hungary.

Sainz feel the Ferrari is in same waters with its rivals.

“Clearly the track conditions as they’ve switched, particularly on soft tyres, maybe they haven’t gone in our direction because yesterday we seemed to have a pace advantage that we certainly didn’t have today,” Sainz explained.

“Even in Q1 and Q2 we didn’t have margin that we had in other races this year and we had to make sure we put our set of new tyres [on] and do it at the right time, because the midfield was certainly closer to us than where they were yesterday.

“We are certainly not particularly happy about today the way the car and everything was handling. But with a perfect lap, I could have put it up there. So, that’s why I’m disappointed.”
