The Asturian double world champion finished third this Sunday at Albert Park, where two consecutive interruptions were decreed with three to go to complete the 58 laps scheduled. First, due to the accident of the Danish Kevin Magnussen (Haas); and then due to the mishaps that occurred after the second re-start, in which Sainz touched Alonso -who had lost third place in favor of his compatriot and returned to the track eleventh- before the race management decreed that the race restart, for the third time, with a single lap, behind the safety car .

Sainz was penalized with five seconds, so he not only lost fourth place, but also finished out of the points (he was twelfth) in a race in which the Mexican Sergio Pérez (Red Bull) starred in the great comeback, finishing fifth after having started from the ‘pit lane’.

‘Czech’ ranked behind the Canadian Lance Stroll, which completed a great day for Aston Martin, finishing fourth.
