Renault’s Carlos Sainz says “small setup changes” between Free Practice 3 and Qualifying were to blame for his Q1 exit on Saturday.
For the first time this season, the Spaniard failed to make it out of the first part of qualifying, finishing in P16.
Sainz said the setup changes simply “didn’t work.” He also said traffic played a role in his demise.
Renault’s Sporting Director Alan Permane said the team is “disappointed for Carlos as it’s the first time he has been out in the first session of qualifying.”
