Sainz – ‘a very bad situation’
‘It was a very bad situation we found ourselves in, leaving the pits as the last car. Also the situation with the traffic in the first and second sector, all the guys who had just finished their lap. I don’t think they got out of way very nicely but it is our fault. We had problem in the front wing which delayed us quite a bit. This has been a ticky weekend because it’s not the pace we need… It will be very difficult to secure P2 in Constructors Championship now. We need to work out what to do to get decent points tomorrow.
