Carlos Sainz will have to use second and last of the two allowed MGU-Ks for 2019 F1 season due to a failure that forced him to retire in the first race of the season in Australia.

Renault failed to fix the damage on the MGU-K that failed in Melbourne so Sainz have to move on to the second and last kinetic motor-generator unit. For the use of the third unit he’ll be punished with 10 grid places which already seems inevitable at some point of this season.

“I hope Renault is studying this problem and will find the cause,” Sainz said.

“We have some solutions to this race, and we’ll just see if it works or not.”

“But the truth is that we have had several failures on the testing so it’s a weak point of the car.”

“We have to make sure we do not throw away more points because we have thrown some in Australia.”
