Sainz happy and proud but mixed feelings: Doesn't taste as good as it should

Ferrari's Carlos Sainz was happy to finish in second, but admitted to feeling a little mixed as he felt he could have had the opportunity to win overall had qualifying gone as planned.

Carlos Sainz was thrilled to have finished second in Monaco for Ferrari, having started from third place.

The Spaniard benefitted from a pitstop issue for Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas that forced the Finn out of the race.

Sainz was hugely frustrated to have missed out on the chance of pole position, but said his podium finish was of great solace after keeping Red Bull under pressure for the win.

"It's a good weekend, I mean, if you would have told me before coming to Monaco that I would finish second I would have definitely taken it!" Sainz said during the podium interviews.

"It's just the whole circumstances of the weekend having Charles on pole, me missing out in quali on a good lap, maybe it doesn't taste as good as it should.

"But I'm sure that when I reflect back on the weekend, I will be very happy and proud of the weekend and I think Ferrari as a team need to be proud about the car, and the step they've done this year."

Sainz admitted to feeling some extra pressure for the race, having had to race as Ferrari's only representative after Leclerc was forced out of the race by a driveshaft failure.

"When you see the other car not starting from pole, all of a sudden the responsibility obviously relies on you trying to salvage a bit the weekend," Sainz said.

"One car is out starting from pole and you want to give the team at least a podium and it was all about getting the start right then, around the pitstops, there was a lot of traffic we were lapping the other cars very quickly."

"Obviously Valtteri had the pitstop, but even without that I was feeling really good with the car today. And I felt like the team, at least, deserved a podium this weekend."
