Sainz wants to keep pushing before the summer break

Best of the rest and three straight points finishes, things are pretty good for Carlos Sainz at the moment but the McLaren driver has vowed to keep pushing as the season heads into the final few races before the summer break.

Sainz and McLaren have surprised many people this season, and have strengthened their grip on fourth in the Constructors' Championship thanks to the good form of the Spaniard who has scored points at the last three races.

The F1 season will take a break after the next two races in Germany and Hungary before returning at the end of August with the Belgian Grand Prix. Sainz wants to keep pushing before the break to help consolidate their place at the front of the midfield.

“It's been an interesting first half of the season and I’m determined to keep pushing as hard as ever before the summer break," Sainz said in McLaren's German Grand Prix preview.

"There is still a long way to go in the Championship, but all our focus is on the next stop – Germany!

"Hockenheim is a classic track on the F1 calendar and we head there aiming to keep our momentum up."

Sainz also had a good word for the team at the factory in Woking, adding: "Everyone back in Woking is working flat out and their efforts have been key to staying competitive within the midfield."
