Ferrari have improved a lot from last season and are 1st in the championship standings, but Carlos Sainz would not be happy. Charles Leclerc would be at the top of the world as he has won 2 races out of 3 that have taken place this season. He also won the Grand Slam at the Australian Grand Prix. On the other hand, Carlos Sainz didn’t have a perfect start to the season.
Carlos Sainz is 38 points behind his teammate and looked frustrated at the Australian Grand Prix. Problems for Carlos Sainz started in Q3 when he just couldn’t start the car in time to set a good lap time. As a result, Carlos had to start from 9th place on the grid. Not only that, he also had to park his car for the first few laps of the race. Just like that, he watched his teammate take the Grand Slam and 26 points while dropping to 3rd in the Drivers’ Championship.
British columnist and ex-Formula 1 driver Jolyon Palmer felt Carlos “doesn’t deserve” to be so far behind Charles Leclerc. He believes Carlos is becoming Ferrari’s second driver, but it could have been different.

Hard times for Carlos Sainz
In an interview, Palmer said: “He is now 38 points behind his teammate and championship leader Charles Leclerc. He didn’t really deserve to be that far behind, so many things just went against him. I don’t think the difference in performance between the two riders was as great as reality is.”
“He has to bounce back soon otherwise the team will start galloping behind Leclerc as they have a great chance to win this championship.” Palmer said, according to planetf1.com.
With a good chunk of the season left, drivers and teams must look forward to making no mistakes from now on. Some teams’ results were not up to date and they will rush to make the necessary changes.
