Sainz’s Future: Challenges and Insights Revealed
The Spaniard was already linked with a potential move to Sauber-Audi, but 1997 world champion Jacques Villeneuve asserts that his “negotiating power” has been significantly reduced by his upcoming ousting at the end of the season.
Former Renault F1 team boss Flavio Briatore believes that “Sainz will arrive at winter testing very annoyed with a great desire for revenge. But I see him fitting in well at Audi, just like his father.”
Sainz issued a brief statement to the media when the news broke, but he has now faced a barrage of questions as he launched his new karting brand CS55 (photo below).
“I’m calm, I’m doing fine,” he says.
“From the inside, I knew and saw things before all of you. I was prepared and we are already working on the future, but we know we have a very important season ahead of us.”
Sainz Confident Despite Ferrari Exit News
He denies that the news has left a big question mark over his entire future Formula 1 career.
“I am very aware of my value as a driver, and for this reason, I am very calm when I look to the future. Good things will definitely come, but for now, my focus remains on doing my best with Ferrari.”
However, he admits that having to give back his red suit at the end of this season is a hard blow.
“It’s certainly not the best feeling to start the season, but as soon as I put on my helmet in Bahrain and am on the track, the only feeling I will have is the desire to win the world championship.”
“Knowing that it’s the last year with a team is not the most normal thing to start a new season, but you can be sure that I will only think about going as fast as possible.”
Meanwhile, a journalist asked if he would give advice to Hamilton as the most titled driver of all time prepares for his move to Maranello.
“He should try my kart!” Sainz smiles.
