Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Car­los Sainz be­lieves the de­ci­sion not to de­lay the Malaysian Grand Prix when he stalled on the grid be­fore the race started was a “sur­prise”. Quick think­ing from Sainz and his en­gi­neer en­sured the car was restarted through the MGU-K, and the Spa­niard even moved from 15th to 11th on the first lap. “They were wait­ing for me, prob­a­bly,” Sainz said. “But I don’t un­der­stand how, when the lights started to turn on, they did a start with a car com­pletely stopped. I was def­i­nitely sur­prised the race started.”
