Either his nav got lost or he lost confidence in the nav from about a minute in...many of the long straights where he should have been flat he lets off on a crest where if he was confident in the directions he'd be flat. Same in the "T" turns in the latter half of the video. He hesitates setting the car until he's 1/4 the way into the apex.

its also apparent in many corners...he's so slow in (being conservative) and then so hard back in the throttle again when he sees the out then has to overcorrect.

Watch a video of Sainz back-to-back with this one. He never overcorrects as much.

In any case that driver is better than me ;-)
