From there start a baseline that hopefully these next four races will help for next year. And if I can also help the team score some points that would be amazing.feedback

Topics that Carlos Sainz speaks about are pace and rally, for example. Most recently, Carlos Sainz was quoted in the article Early Renault switch vital for 2018 saying, “It's going to be difficult because I have been for 16 driving a car, he has been 16 races driving a car I haven't driven. So it will take a bit of time to adapt to it. Obviously I want to do it as quick as possible but I'm convinced it will take a bit of time of adaptation. My target is to be on the pace as quick as possible but that does not come for free, it will take a lot of hard work, a lot of data analysis, a lot of understanding with the engineers how to drive the car and the car requirements, etc. Then if it happens, it happens.”.

Oct 06 2017 - Malaysia

The mechanics fixed it in one and half, two hours. They did an amazing job and congratulations for that, it shows the commitment they have, and I really appreciate it.feedback

We obviously were fighting for position and we both braked extremely late into Turn 1 and then he started closing, closing, closing on me and I didn't have any more steering and we just collided a bit. Maybe it was a misjudgement from his side, but it was such a slight touch but such a big spin at the same time. I think he was already ahead of me so if you are already ahead of me, don't risk closing on me, especially when we both braked so late. He was already pretty much ahead so I just started to turn, I ran out of steering lock and we collided.feedback

Sep 15 2017 - Renault

I'm very happy to be joining Renault Sport Formula One Team. To be a Formula one driver for a manufacturer team is an honour and I hope to reward Renault's faith in me with my very best performances on track.feedback

I think the mentally of the people when they look at it, yes because they are both Spanish, one is the mentor and the other is the kid learning from him, they want to spice it up. But I battle with him like I battle with any other driver on the grid. Yes, he might be a bit better than others.feedback

It's definitely a great learning situation for me for the upcoming years. It's like battling for a win, because normally Fernando should be battling for wins. We are battling for the win of the midfield with a double world champion and probably the best driver of the grid. I did learn a lot of stuff [in Hungary] -- it's my third year and you never stop learning.feedback

Aug 06 2017

From my side there is nothing else than sheer ambition, and sometimes in the heat of ambition you say things. But that is me. I have targets and objectives. It should be over -- so turn the page.feedback

Aug 06 2017

It is my one and only target to be a Red Bull driver in the future. That is what I want, and that is what I have said a hundred times before. And if one answer said in the heat of the moment is spinning out of control -- that is just modern times.feedback

Jul 06 2017

It's still a very long season ahead. Obviously rumours are always going to come at this stage. As you all know, my target number one is to be with Red Bull next year, fighting for podiums, wins, or whatever they're fighting for next year. And I'm going to keep pushing for this. If that doesn't happen, a fourth year in Toro Rosso is unlikely, and I don't want to close the door to any opportunity.feedback

It was probably the most dangerous part of the race when we restart. The leaders were waiting up until the safety car line to start and at the same time they were going fast and slow. For the guys at the back we are still in the corners when they going fast, slow, there's walls and we cannot see through them. So suddenly we are going flat-out sixth, seventh gear and they were braking again. For me, a bit on the dangerous side.feedback

Jun 26 2017

If I would have been the leaders then I probably would have done the same. It's not the leader's fault at all as I think all of us would have done the same to avoid the maximum possible slipstream that is on that straight. It's just the rule I think and if you want to be a bit more careful and make sure no accidents, if not, let it be and more things will happen.feedback

Jun 26 2017

I think in general the whole weekend has been pretty slow recovery. I don't think the red flag was necessary or maybe yes because there was so much debris, I don't know. But it's just when the recovery is so slow. I understand the FIA taking this kind of decision because you just avoid cars going into freezing tyres and crazy restarts. I think they were a bit fed up of the crazy restarts. They said let's put the tyres up to temperature on the red flag, let's clean the track properly, let's avoid any punctures at high speed and let's restart the race.feedback

Jun 26 2017

Probably for next year they should consider when the leader is obliged to push. I think they should just put a rule where the leader starts before Turn 16 and to be flat from 16 because you cannot be slow, slow braking, fast, slow braking all of the time in such a long straight with people actually thinking they are going. Suddenly you are upshifting and upshifting, and braking again. It was probably the most dangerous part of the race.feedback

Jun 17 2017

It depends about how much time goes by. If Red Bull haven't come to me in October for sure I will have to go to them, but I'm pretty sure [they will]. Last year they came to me in June, around Baku, to sign my option, and over the summer in Formula 1 usually these sort of things start to happen. So I'm not very impatient at the moment.feedback

May 27 2017

I did not expect it to be as complicated as it was. After Q1, all of the midfield pack caught up on us. We were looking very strong during the weekend but suddenly in qualifying it was as tight as it was in the previous races. We build it up, probably a bit too quick for my liking, we were doing really fast laps from Q1 onwards. In Q3, just throw everything out there and put a good lap together to be P6 which is the maximum we can do here. I am extremely happy.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - Bahrain

They take a decision, they go with it, they understand they wouldn't change their decision because they would lose some credibility. They will never change. But there you have it. First incident, fighting for position, first penalty.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - Bahrain

You go home with the penalty, you get it, you cannot appeal, nothing. That's how it is. Even for pride, they wouldn't change their opinion. I don't think it would change nothing. Even if you had the opportunity to appeal, it's not like suddenly the stewards are going to decide the contrary.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - Bahrain

I obviously was quite surprised with the grid drop. I thought they were going to consider it a racing incident. Obviously in F1 when you are fighting for position, for the points, there are a lot of racing battles going on. It was, for me, a racing incident. Lance simply didn't see me and maybe a guy with a bit more experience would have seen me and left me enough space on the corner.feedback

Apr 16 2017

I don't know what else to say. I just saw the video, it's ridiculous. I saw him coming out of the pit lane but he was miles behind and he just completely goes down the inside and I was already in the middle of the corner. He just hit me.feedback

Apr 11 2017

Get in there Lewis! Absolute masterclass.feedback

Apr 10 2017

On the grid I said I wanted to start the race on slick tyres and everyone thought I was completely mad.feedback

Apr 09 2017

When everyone started to pit at the end of lap two with the Safety Car, I said now I've taken the right decision, and I was so happy. But again the race was not won in our way, only there it was also on the pace on the super-soft catching the Red Bull and Ferrari in damp conditions.feedback

Apr 09 2017

Honestly at the beginning, when I saw everyone on inters, I thought it was the wrong decision, but in those moments, you have to trust yourself. You should have seen the faces of my engineers, of [team boss] Franz [Tost], of Helmut Marko when I told them I wanted to go on the super-softs. The good thing is that I didn't need to argue. I told [Franz] I'm convinced, I want the super-soft, I think it will pay off. Let's play the long game. They looked at me like I was totally mad, but it was worth it.feedback

Apr 07 2017

Quite a lot of investigation has gone on now by the FIA, which I fully support because it means they are taking the situation seriously and trying to find the best compromise between safety, good-looking, futuristic - because one thing the halo lacked was this futuristic, F1 look that the cars should have. They are looking into it, finding new solutions and we are happy for them to keep researching and coming up with new ideas to implement ASAP.feedback

Jan 06 2017 - PSA Group

It is obviously devastating to have to retire. We had been running at a good pace since the start of the rally.feedback
