In a totally unforeseen way in this circuit, Carlos Sainz can make history this Sunday. The Madrilenian faces the Russian GP, where in the past he had two of his worst accidents in Formula 1, from the second position on the grid led by his former teammate Lando norris.
The rain on Saturday did not appear this Sunday, so a somewhat calmer race than qualifying is expected, but with many points of interest. The foreseeable comeback of Max verstappen, which comes out from the bottom of the grill to change its complete engine, with Valtteri Bottas sacrificed also by Mercedes to try to stop him, and a Lewis hamilton that fourth part in search of victory can leave moments of glory. George Russell, his next teammate in Mercedes, part 3 with him Williams.
In expectation comes out Fernando Alonso, 6th on the grid, with the intention of giving the bell. He ‘only’ has to win three positions, and on a circuit where overtaking is possible, nothing should be taken for granted.
