Vasseur: Sainz’s outburst was understandable, but we made the right call

Sainz, reflecting on the race, feels that he missed out on a possible podium considering Ocon’s third-place finish. He admitted that he shouldn’t have expressed his frustration over the radio and acknowledged that the second pit stop was unpredictable due to changing weather conditions.

In the end, Sainz finished the race in eighth place, as he made contact with the barrier when rain began to fall. This dropped him behind his teammate Charles Leclerc, positioning him for a double-stack pit stop.

Looking back at the race, Vasseur stated, “You always learn on a tough weekend. You learn more from a tough weekend than from a good weekend. If we look at the first part of the weekend, you can say that the pace was good. But we missed the pace in Q3, and when you start fourth and sixth, you have to take a risk at some point, so I don’t have any regrets as far as the race is concerned.”
