Sainz and his renewal with Ferrari: “It has been super simple”

We can finally tell: Carlos Sainz will continue to wear red in the long run. The Spanish driver has been announced by Ferrari to continue accompanying Charles Leclerc until 2024, thus forging one of the best pairings on the Formula 1 grid.

The renewal was a matter of time

Rumors about the complications surrounding the renewal of Carlos were surprising. Finally, no 1+1. Directly they will be two fixed years in which the man from Madrid will drive for the teamapart from 2022.

The 27-year-old will therefore compete for at least four seasons with Ferrari. This agreement has not surprised Sainz himself, despite the fact that the talks have gone on longer than necessary: ​​“It was super easy, to be honest. After such a good first year that we had… We just had to reach an agreement. It has been quite easy for both parties”, he stated in reference to the Main Team Ferrari, Mattia Binotto.

An agreed announcement

The Italian formation is usually right when to share big news. Monza is usually a perfect date to capture the full attention of the Ferrari parish. Although, on this occasion, another place of worship has been selected for the Italians, the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari: “We put together a good plan to advertise here”, Sainz has confessed: “Announce it in a place like Imola, in front of the tifosi, I think it was ideal”.

The extension of Carlos’ contract for two more years will give him security and confidence for the rest of the campaign “I think stability is key. It’s important to focus on performance and racing and not so much on what the future holds. It was quite clear in winter that we were going to make sure of this. Not that he was worried in the first few races, but he always gives you an extra push.”, the Spaniard concluded.

The Monegasque, by the way, has also been happy that his friend will continue by his side until 2024: “We have a very good relationship and he is a great rider with whom I share many feelings. Stability will always bring long-term benefits”, has sentenced the leader of the championship.
