In the round-up: Carlos Sainz Jnr is amazed McLaren are still in contention with Racing Point for third place in the championship.
What they say
With one race remaining, McLaren are 10 points behind Racing Point, who are third in the standings.
Even with a fresher tyre, I couldn’t keep up, nearly, with a Racing Point, which exposes a bit our limitations right now.
Honestly, I don’t know how the Racing Points haven’t sealed that third place in the championship yet with the car they have. But we’re doing everything we can to stay in the fight.
They’ve done a massive step forward [in Sakhir] and I would like to congratulate Checo because I think he deserves that win. He deserves to be in the sport next year. I hope he gets a seat.
From our side, keep pushing, but at the same time, a car that is two or three tenths a lap quicker in this short track should always finish ahead.
