Ferrari's Carlos Sainz will be hoping for better fortunes at the Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday, June 19 following the disappointments of last weekend.
The Spaniard completed just eight laps in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix before a Hydraulics issues forced him to retire. Ferrari team-mate Charles Leclerc also didn't finish the race due to a problem with his power unit.

It was the third retirement of the campaign for Sainz, who has performed rather well otherwise, having secured four podium finishes in the five races where he went the distance.
The 27-year-old was part of a one-two finish for the Prancing Horse in the Bahrain Grand Prix, which was won by Leclerc, and he claimed P2 in the Monaco Grand Prix to match his best result of 2022.
Sainz is fifth in the drivers' standings on 83 points, 33 behind Leclerc and a further 24 adrift of current leader Max Verstappen.

He admitted to a tough day for the team in Baku, but is confident that they can bounce back in Montreal and beyond.
"Today's result is hard to accept. Unfortunately, a hydraulic problem occurred on lap 9 and that was it. Together with Charles' issue, this is definitely a difficult day for the entire team and our fans, as we lost valuable points and mileage", Sainz said.
"For one reason or another, it's been complicated to build a strong momentum so far this season. However, we are a very strong team and I have absolutely no doubt we have the ability and determination to come back stronger. There is still a long way to go this year. On to Canada."
