Carlos Sainz has signalled hope that Ferrari can secure a strong
result at the Las Vegas Grand Prix this weekend. The Italian squad
remain the only team to beat Red Bull this year after Sainz
prevailed in Singapore mid-September. Ferrari endured a more
difficult outing last time out in Brazil with Leclerc retiring on
the formation lap with a hydraulics failure while Sainz managed
sixth at the chequered flag. Sainz highlighted that while the first
sector of the track may not suit Ferrari, he is confident that the
remainder of the layout will suit its car. “[I have] better hope
than recently mainly because the truck looks probably a bit more
suited to us than recent tracks,” Sainz told media including
RacingNews365. “Long straights like in Monza, tight corners, like
in Monza or Singapore. “Maybe there’s the combination of Turn 1 and
2 where we will not be very quick. “But then the rest of the track
I think our car should be better suited than recent events. And
hopefully, that gives us a better opportunity.” Sainz yet to
experience Las Vegas circuit Sainz added that he hasn’t had time to
complete a track walk ahead of speaking to media for the weekend
but is familiar after tackling the layout on the simulator.
“Honestly, I haven’t done the track walk because the timings are
just weird this weekend and I don’t know when the track is fully
free. We kind of missed it a bit. “But I’ve done plenty of laps on
the simulator. I’m looking forward to seeing the Safety Car going
around later this evening to see how much dust there is on track,
the bumps. “Sometimes when you see a Safety Car, you can actually
get a bit of a feeling of how slippery is going to be out there.”
