(cafetheology.org) – Toro Rosso driver Carlos Sainz is in 10th place on Sunday at the Grand Prix of Belgium in Spa-Francorchamps for the eighth time this season. "Every time I came to the finish line this year, I was in the pits, and we were thrilled to continue this trend," the Spaniard rejoices. Team-mate Daniil Kwjat, who had started after a swap of the power unit from the last row, came to position twelve.Sainz had looked at the peloton from grid 12, before the race, but this hope faded after the Spaniard in the first turn In traffic. "After I was in 16th or 17th position, I was not expecting any points, so we decided to go with the team for a pick-up strategy and have been riding the ultra-fast tire for a very long time," says Sainz. The Spaniard put the race on the softest tire mixture for 18 laps. The attack strategy was then crossed by the safety car, which came after the collision of the two Force India pilots. "We made the right decisions, and it was a lot of fun, either I slipped on the tires and had to defend myself, or I had fresh tires and could attack," says Sainz. "This one point meant a lot to us, so we had not expected here." More difficult was the race for team colleague Kwjat, who had to cope with engine problems at the end of the race in Belgium and only came from position 19 after a change of the drive unit. "If you start from so far back, you have to cut back on the strategy and sometimes I would have had to be two or three seconds ahead, then I would have had a free ride, the speed was really good when the car was free," says Kwjat "It was a difficult weekend for us, and we had expected it would not be easy, and so it was," says Teamchef Franz Tost. Therefore, he is quite satisfied with Sainz's performance and the one World Cup point. "More was not in the car today, he drove a good first stint and put the ultrasoften tires well."
