Silverstone was a historic moment for Carlos Sainz. After a thrilling race that started with the shocking accident of the Chinese GuanyuZhou, the Spaniard won the British Grand Prix. After losing first place to Max Verstappen in the race, the man from Madrid made a comeback and became the second Spaniard ever to win an F1 Grand Prix. This victory comes nine years after Fernando Alonso's last triumph.
The Ferrari driver, in his 150th grand prix, is a round figure. He writes his name in gold letters and gives authority to a season that saw him at the shadows of his Monegasque Charles Leclerc who finished fourth, just ahead Fernando Alonso. On the most memorable day of Carlos Sainz’s career, the British Lewis Hamilton and Sergio Perez from Mexico completed the podium. This was his second season with Ferrari.
Carlos Sainz said, "It's an extremely special day," as his first words when he got out the car. After an accident that involved Esteban Ocon, a Frenchman, while Esteban was leading the race, the safety car was removed. The Spaniard was glowing at the end of a weekend which is a true honor for his position within Formula 1. Although there were many disappointments in the past weeks, and races where he couldn't achieve a better result than his teammate Leclerc, the Spaniard was elated at the end of a weekend that is a true honor for his status within Formula 1.
Carlos Sainz is the 112th Formula 1 winner and the second Spanish driver to win the race. He will be remembered as a significant figure in Spanish motorsport's history on July 3.
Carlos Sainz was second in the Grand Prix's last classification. He started from pole in this qualifying session and didn't miss an opportunity to end the long journey through Formula 1's desert. The man from Madrid pulled off class after two safety cars and a red flag. He even ignored the instructions of his team to do this.
Sainz was aware that this was his moment. His rebellion was rewarded by a large prize after a grand award that was repaid with a huge reward.
After the 32 won by Fernando Alonso in Formula 1, Spain's 33rd victory was achieved in the cathedral of great circus, where Carlos Sainz radiated joy. The man from Madrid was unable to contain his emotions. "I don’t know what else to say!" It's amazing, it's the first win 150 years later. He declared at the track's foot, "With Ferrari and Silverstone, it's impossible to ask for more." It could have ended better, but it couldn't have been harder. Although we have had to suffer, we kept our heads up in the face of any eventuality. We have taken the opportunity and won many races on the track. He explained that I had nothing to lose, and that I had to keep up with Max.
He is the forty-eighth driver to be able to succeed at the wheel of a Scuderia single seater. "Let's go!" Carlos Sainz, exultant after crossing the finish line, screamed "Let's go!" It was not for the lowerly.
