Carlos Saines: “I Want To Be A Champion In Five Years”
2021-02-26 | by CusiGO
Those who think Carlos Sainz landed at Ferrari to play the role of Charles Leclerc’s bodyguard may begin to doubt these theoretically established roles. It’s not just because in the last ranking, in 2020, Monaco, eighth, eventually lagged behind the Spaniard, sixth, who closed his stage at McLaren. Saines, 26, has six times of experience in Formula One World Cup. After completing the sixth statistical square course reserved for builders, he reached the peak of red ball when the structure went through a trough. Only three podiums were the main spoils; Two from leclere (Austria and sylveston) and one from Sebastian Vettel (Turkey). This is the worst burden for an IL Cavallino producer since 1980, when Gilles Villeneuve and Jody scheckter finished fifth.
In addition, Madrid people have no choice but to take part in the first stop on the calendar (March 28) in Bahrain. It only takes one and a half days of training to familiarize themselves with the Sf21 single seat car (which will be launched on the 10th day) planned to be launched in this financial year. Saines began to understand Ferrari’s DNA after several seasons of single seat tests with fiolano and Jerez. However, his responsibilities at the start of the next tournament do not bear any resemblance to those he has accumulated so far. Ferrari is another matter, but if you have to be guided by nonverbal communication when a runner makes his first official debut, the newcomer seems ready for the challenge. “It’s an important moment to try to get Ferrari back to the top. I want to be a world champion in five years and I think it’s the best place. “I still have time,” saines said, sitting on the left side of training manager Martina binotto and leclere on the right.
With a month to go before the traffic lights go out at sakir, Sains looks to March 12, the only three days of pre-season training in Bahrain: “I hope to be 100% ready in the first race, but my experience tells me it will be difficult. Only one and a half days of testing is very complicated, but I have experience in changing equipment (three times in six years) and I will try to use it. ”
So far, the son of the two World Rally Championships (1990 and 1992) has never had any problems with any of the five workshop neighbors he met. Even Max vistapone made his debut at Red Bull in 2015. “I’ve never had any problems with any of my former classmates, and I don’t understand why I should be with Charles,” saines said.
