Carlos Sainz opens up on relationship with Lando Norris

Carlos Sainz believes that his strong relationship with teammate Lando Norris is beneficial for the team and is helping both drivers develop. Both drivers push each other but have a good relationship of the track which is helping McLaren's quest for performance. 

“We are both enjoying it,” Sainz said to Top Gear. “We came into the team with the same philosophy of ‘let’s help, between you and me, to move this team forward’. It comes naturally to get on well with a guy like him. We’re just enjoying the year, making sure together we put positive energy into the team." 

Sainz has been in Formula 1 for a few years now and will hope to start getting some success in the form of podiums over the next few years. 

“There’s always pressure to maintain yourself in Formula 1. It’s my fifth season, so I’m starting to feel a bit more established, after surviving as one of the only drivers to leave the Red Bull program but still be in the sport. 

"Now it’s a matter of ‘when do I want to win?’ I want to win as soon as possible, and I think I’m at the right place at the right time to just get the momentum, and think about winning in the future.”

McLaren are re-establishing themselves as a strong team and with their driver line up then could be a worth keeping an eye on over the next few seasons.
