"What a rollercoaster! I’m extremely happy," Sainz Jr said after winning the 2024 Australian Grand Prix.
"I felt good in the car right from lap 1 and after overtaking Max (Verstappen), when I was in free air, I started setting a strong pace that took me all the way to the finish line, bringing home the first win of the season.
"I’m also happy that George is OK after the heavy crash. The team deserves this one-two, we did a fantastic job all weekend, from FP1 to the last lap. We executed a perfect race, nailed the strategy and the mechanics were incredible delivering precise and quick pit stops every single time," he added.
"Congratulations to everyone! Let’s carry this momentum to Japan! Vamos!."
