Belgian F1 GP 2022: Carlos Sainz: “You are never alone in F1”

VSCarlos Sainz does not want to throw the bells on the fly due to his good pace and the absence of Verstappen, Leclerc or Norris in the front places on Sunday in the race, as they were all penalized for different and abundant changes of engine and gearbox components.

“Yes, there are none, but you are never alone in F1, if there is not Verstappen and Leclerc, there will be Pérez, Hamilton and Russell. There is never a simple Grand Prix in Formula 1“, he says.

“Overall it was a good Friday. In EL1, I felt comfortable with the balance of the car. For FP2 we tried a few changes that didn’t quite work as expected and we lost the feeling a bit. However, I hope we know where to find the lap time and the long-term pace was also good, so I think we are well placed for the rest of the weekend. It’s true that Verstappen seems very quick, although in the long stints we’re a bit closer,” said Sainz.


Alonso, happy to return to Spa

For his part, Fernando Alonso, seventh, expects another weekend of competition, even if in the dry it is difficult to get on the podium.

“First of all I want to say how good it is to be back. Driving Formula 1 cars at Spa-Francorchamps is something that always gives you an adrenaline rush, so it’s been a fun Friday. The changes on the circuit have not made it very different from what it was before, although it is true that the new loopholes are safer”, assured the Asturian

“We didn’t have stable weather conditions to test the tyres, so youWe still have a few points to assess tomorrow in the third and final free practice.“, explained Alonso, tenth in the World Championship, with 41 points. “The car feels quite good to drive here, so we hope to have another competitive weekend.”
