The Spanish rider is considering leaving his team after being ashamed of his performance at Zandvoort.
The Spanish pilot Carlos Sainz had a difficult weekend at Zandvoort with his Ferrari team. Despite finishing a respectable fifth, Sainz admitted he was embarrassed by the car’s performance in the race. In an interview after the race, the man from Madrid assured that they couldn’t get more than fifth place and is already thinking about the Italian Grand Prix.
“A very tough race, we fought all the time with cars that were much faster than us. Still we stayed in the fight, we made no mistakes, We were largely successful with the strategy and were able to fight our way to fifth place. I don’t think much else happened this weekend,” explains Sainz.

Additionally, Sainz confirmed that fifth place was the maximum they could aim for today. “The podium took me a second. Unfortunately… There was no rhythm for the podium today, there was no place I could reach it, look I tried. But no, we broke more, we drove slower, we did enough today by eventually being on the podium,” summarizes the man from Madrid.
No doubt the Spanish rider has made it clear that the team can learn a lot this weekend, but he already has his sights set on the next Grand Prix. “I hope that things will go well for us again in Monza. “I think it was a damage control weekend. It’s clear that we suffered a lot with the car in the race and in qualifying,” said Sainz.
The search for a competitive car
Despite the difficulties Carlos Sainz is fifth in the Constructors’ Championship with 102 points. However, his performance leaves a lot to be desired and it is rumored that he could make a drastic decision and leave the Ferrari team. The Formula 1 season is not over yet and Sainz has a chance to improve his position in the championship. But if he decides to leave Ferrari he will have to find a team that will give him a more competitive car and a better chance.
In short, the future of the pilot is uncertain, but what is clear is that he is a talented and experienced rider who deserves to be on a team where he can show his true potential. Formula 1 fans will be watching for any news on his future and look forward to seeing him on the grid next season.
