Carlos Sainz says he was not comfortable with his Ferrari at all at Monza, saying the rear-end of the SF21 is a weakness for him.
Looking at statistics alone, it would seem that Sainz has had a fantastic start to life at Ferrari, already with 97.5 points on the board and two podium finishes.
But in fact it has not been a smooth ride, with Sainz having suffered several high-speed, and expensive unforced crashes. The latest came at the Italian Grand Prix during FP2.
The prior round at Zandvoort also saw a heavy shunt in practice, and by the end of the weekend, we saw a rare dejected version of Sainz as he spoke of never feeling that slow in a race before.
