In the classification of Azerbaijan Grand Prix of the Formula 1 there were many complicated situations. The Baku street circuit is one of the longest and most complicated on the calendar, so accidents were the order of the day. One of them was Carlos Sainz, that ended up against the barriers after dodging Yuki tsunoda. In this way, Charles Leclerc he got the pole on Saturday.
The Spanish rider was behind the Japanese, and was looking to improve his lap times to get into the top starting positions. However, far from that, the pilot of Ferrari had a strong block. While trying to turn, he went directly against the wall, breaking his front wing, causing the red flag and leaving the session.
Sainz was upset by his accident, but he also threw a dart at Tsunoda from the shock he had. “It is not ideal to block, my intention was not to crash, but you are on your lap, once a driver has crashed and you hesitate when braking. It is what there is, they are two very compromising situations in a row, difficult to accept. The car in front of me crashes, but we have to turn the page and see what we can do “
“I was improving, today there was a chance to fight for pole, but Yuki crashed. Perhaps in the first attempt of Q3 I had a lack of slipstream, perhaps if I had had it, the pole was mine. Looking ahead to tomorrow we can overtake, but I don’t expect it to be an overtaking party, “said the Spaniard after qualifying to the Spanish media Soymotor.es
Finally, the Ferrari driver was hopeful that he will be able to move up some positions in the race, as he will start from fifth place and will seek his second consecutive podium in the 2021 season. “I started the lap too close to Yuki. We hope things will happen here, we have a rhythm for the podium. If we play our cards well, we can make a good comeback, “he said to close.
