On his birthday, Carlos Sainz managed to set the fastest time on the Monza circuit yesterday. Sainz couldn’t get a better present on his 29th birthday, but at the same time he is also surprised that the Ferrari F1 car on the Monza circuit suddenly behaves differently and manages to perform much better.
“It can’t get much better than this,” Carlos Sainz began his Friday review. “It was a smooth day to be honest. It’s great to be back on a track like Monza and from the first lap of the first practice session the car felt normal again after a difficult weekend at Zandvoort.”
“The car seems to have good speed this weekend and the track characteristics seem to suit us better. It’s basically the same car but for some reason the car felt much better, which confuses me.”
“As soon as we got on track with the car it adapted better for some reason and it was much easier to do the set-up. It doesn’t mean we’re going to take pole in qualifying and win the race, but it certainly feels a lot better.”
