Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz says drivers have asked the FIA “not listen to the teams so much and to listen to us” regarding bouncing, before the damage to their bodies starts “accumulating”.

After the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, which left Lewis Hamilton with severe back pain caused by his car’s heavy bouncing, more and more drivers are asking the FIA to do something to stop this phenomenon from happening.

One of them is Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz, who has expressed his concern for the drivers’ health and safety.

“We kindly asked the FIA to look into it, not listen to the teams so much and to listen to us,” the Spaniard said.

“We are saying it’s getting to a point where we are struggling to handle this.

“I don’t think we need a medical commission, we just need something smarter on the suspension or the way the cars are being run, where the FIA controls a bit better the possibility of the teams running that stiff, that hard, that kind of ride you see on the straights.

“I’m pretty sure if you ask two or three engineers down the paddock, they will know the answer and what can be done to limit this and regulate it.

“But we need the FIA to act as soon as possible, if not, it will start accumulating,” Sainz concluded.
