Sainz: At 300 km/h it is difficult to comply with the rules

Carlos Sainz believes that the rules in modern Formula 1 are too complex, and the debate over the collision between Lando Norris and Max Verstappen in Spielberg confirms this. The Ferrari driver said that at a speed of 300 km/h it is impossible to comply with the combat rules set out in the regulations.

“I am concerned about the fact that new clauses are constantly being added to the rules regarding fighting on the track,” Racingnews365 quotes Carlos as saying. – I think there are already too many rules.

If you read the rules, you will see how to act when overtaking on the inside of a bend, and how to act when defending on the inside. In the same way, actions are prescribed when attacking on the outside radius and instructions are given on how to defend on the inside.

These are completely different rules that are extremely detailed and specific. I find it hard to follow them when I’m driving a car at 300 km/h. At such speeds it’s simply impossible to think about all these rules.

We don’t need any additional rules. The ones that already exist are more than enough, and the stewards have already given their verdict on that incident [столкновению Ферстаппена и Норриса]. There is nothing more to talk about.”
