Carlos Sainz for Carlos Sainz, his mechanics after the summer break regularly brought a lot of work before qualifying. For bothand , the Ferrari pilot in Saturday training escaped so hard that it was not clear if he could participate in qualifying. And Sainz knows himself: that was actually unnecessary.

Red Bull boss' glaring issue with Monza crash fallout
Christian Horner has questioned the FIA's handling of the Max Verstappen-Lewis Hamilton crash at the Italian Grand Prix. While Verstappen was hit with a three-place grid penalty for the next grand prix, set to be held in the Russian city of Sochi next weekend, Hamilton avoided sanction.The crash occurred when Verstappen tried to overtake Hamilton on lap 26 as they navigated the first chicane of the circuit, with Verstappen's Red Bull climbing onto the top of his title rival's Mercedes in a collision that eliminated both drivers from the race.
For Sochi and the rest of the season, the Spaniard wants to make sure that that happens again. "But that's part of the game," he says. "I've never been a driver who has many accidents, so that's nothing, which worries me."
"You see that I'm trying to find the limit and direction in the set-up. And sometimes it goes wrong and sometimes not," says Sainz, but he wants to see the positive.
"The positive is that the speed is there," he emphasizes. Despite his accidents he had been in qualifying at eye level with teammate Charles Leclec. In Zandvoort he was as a sixth just a hundredth of a second behind the middlegassen, in the sprint of Monza he came to the finish as a seventh right behind Leclerc.
"I'm very, very fast. So my self-confidence does not seem to have suffered."
