Before starting the Italian GP, we would have signed a podium for Carlos Sainz. At the end of the race, his second place had a bittersweet taste, paradoxes of the sport. With Hamilton penalized and Bottas missing, the Madrid native modified his ambitions on the fly. Because he has faith in his ability, he trusts his talent, he is a fighter, a winner. He wanted to climb to the top of the podium knowing that it will not be easy for other similar opportunities to arise throughout the year, only a masterful Gasly stood between his wishes and reality. However, beyond the specific result, I would be left with a new exhibition on the potential of Spanish, the demonstration that it has a long way to go until it reaches its limit.

On Saturday he anticipated his aspirations with an excellent qualification, he only had to cross his fingers that during the race fortune would accompany him more than in previous great prizes. The circumstances weren't ideal, either, but enough to fulfill his end of the bargain. Consistent from start to finish, with a sensational start and a pace more than enough to aim for that podium I longed for. The forced interruption by the Leclerc accident generated a different scenario, not the intention of Sainz.
