Carlos Sainz called for a review of the procedure for selecting marshals to work in Formula 1. The Ferrari driver did not like the slowness of the Austrian marshals, who were in no rush to help when his car caught fire.
“I was not in the most comfortable and easy situation because I saw in the rear-view mirrors how my car was on fire,” Racingnews365 quotes Carlos Sainz. “At the same time, I couldn’t get out of the cockpit because I had to press the brake pedal so the car wouldn’t roll back.
I called the marshals to help me and put something under the wheels to stop the car from rolling. The whole process was rather slow, the fire flared up strongly and I had to jump out of the cockpit unaided.
It is absolutely necessary to pay attention to what has happened, because everything could have happened much faster. The situation was not the most pleasant.
