Key Facts

  • Ferrari’s Racing Director Laurent Mekies said Carlos Sainz’s Lap 1 retirement from the United States Grand Prix was a “shock”, but that Charles Leclerc was “brilliant” in recovering from P12 to P3.
  • It was a great opportunity and I think from where Red Bull were, it would have been great to be in the fight with Carlos.
  • “On the other side, starting P12 with Charles and at some point being in P2 was a brilliant way to come through the field, so very well done to Charles for that and to the team.
  • “They managed to deal with that and certainly when there are some fights such as today, it gives them an advantage; it’s something we always need to balance between lap time and speed and I think they had a bit of a pace advantage... as they have had at most of the Sundays this year.”
