Carlos Sainz’s Ferrari bursts into flames with driver still inside before he dramatically bails out at Austrian GP

CARLOS SAINZ’S horror luck continued when his car caught FIRE during the Austrian GP. Sainz stayed behind the wheel for a few seconds as the flames spread, before a track marshal finally got to him and Sainz dramatically bailed out. Flames poured out of the Ferrari as Sainz escaped as the car rolled backwards. Verstappen now leads the drivers standings by 38 points from Leclerc, with Sainz down in fourth below Sergio Perez. But it was a traumatic week for the Sainz family as Carlos’ engine problems came just three days after his father was involved in a terrifying crash of his own. Sainz Sr was in the lead when he was hit by Rosberg X Racing’s Johan Kristoffersson, causing his car to flip.
