Carlos Sainz scores half point in unparalleled Belgian GP

Sunday, 29 August 2021
-       Race: P10

  • Carlos scored half point at the Belgian GP, which was dramatically cut short due to the heavy rain that today fell in Spa-Francorchamps.
  • The start was delayed three hours and the race finished with a red flag due to the poor visibility after a few laps behind the Safety-Car.
  • Given that the cars didn’t complete the 75% of the race distance, FIA only awarded half points to the Top 10 drivers. Carlos, tenth at that time, scored half point.

“Obviously, it’s a great shame that we were unable to put on a bit of a show for the courageous fans who braved the terrible weather to come and watch and for the people at home. Unfortunately, there was nothing we could do, as the visibility was too poor for us to race. For me, it’s also a shame because we could’ve tried to make up some places from my grid position, but safety must always be the priority. Now it’s time to turn the page and luckily on Friday we will already be back on track at Zandvoort. Looking forward to my first race there in Formula 1".
