The F.Renault 3.5 Saturday in Spa was a day to forget for Zeta Corse. After some very good performances in the Friday Free Practice sessions, the Italian outfit wasn’t on the same level in Qualifying. A misunderstanding between two members of the technical staff caused a setup mistake that gave Carlos Sainz Jr. an unbalanced car, and the Spanish youngster couldn’t do better than 19th place.
Claudio Corradini - Team Manager
“We had a really troubled day. We are deeply sorry for Carlos, as we didn’t give him the opportunity to fulfill the potential he had showed yesterday. Mihai’s race was very unlucky too, he had the pace to recover some ground but another competitor punted him. Luckily we still have tomorrow to turn the tide, and I can guaranteed that the whole team will push hard to get back where we deserve”.
