Sainz’s Full Support by Ferrari Until Season End

28/02/2024

Ferrari backs Carlos Sainz to the final corner before his exit, with full commitment and respect.

Ferrari Team Principal Fred Vasseur has stated that Carlos Sainz will receive his full support and that of the Scuderia until the very last corner of the season, out of respect for his commitment before being replaced by Lewis Hamilton.

Sainz’s contract is set to expire at the end of this year and he will not remain with Ferrari following the announcement that Hamilton will join Charles Leclerc on a multi-year deal in 2025.

Even though this decision was made public before the start of this season, Vasseur does not anticipate any issues in the relationship between Sainz and the team and has pledged complete support for the Spaniard.

“We’ve had the time to discuss it,” Vasseur stated.

“He reacted in a highly professional manner, but I fully understand that the period and journey have not been easy for him. It was the most difficult phone call of my life when I had to call him, but also because I truly appreciate what he did last year with us.”

“The fact that he managed to win in Singapore, secure pole position in Monza, assist the team at this stage of the season, and so on. Despite this, his reaction is highly professional. He is fully focused on the season and he told me he would push until the last lap of the season. But he can be sure that I will also push for him until the last corner – not the last lap, but the last corner.”

“Out of respect for all the stakeholders of the season and the project, we have put a lot of work into this year’s car. The drivers are fully committed and we need to stay focused on 2024.”

“This chapter with Lewis is another, it will be for 2025, but for now, I want to keep the team motivated and focused. Carlos is doing a great job and with his support, he can be sure that the team will support him in return until the end.”
