Sainz fears losing FP1 will “hurt” later in Monaco GP weekend

McLaren Formula 1 driver Carlos Sainz Jr fears the mileage he lost to a technical issue in Monaco Grand Prix first practice will “hurt further into the weekend”.
But Sainz reckoned he still lost “30, 40 laps” due to his FP1 non-start, and was wary the impact of that would be felt more in the weekend’s remaining action.
Despite only completing 27 laps, he said missing out on long runs did not matter too much as “it’s all about qualifying” in Monaco.
