Sainz: “I’m sure I can also have a good relationship there”

Carlos Sainz leaves McLaren for Ferrari this season. At McLaren, the Spaniard had an excellent final season after finishing third in the championship. He also had an excellent relationship with his teammate.

Competitive relationship

Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris were teammates for two years at McLaren, where the two got along very well. “Obviously my relationship with Lando is great and I enjoyed it a lot,” Sainz told “Since the moment we met, we always had a good feeling with each other and we have managed to translate that into a very healthy and competitive relationship also at the track.”

Norris and Sainz therefore have a lot of respect for each other. “I think this is helping a lot the team to move forward and to now be third in the constructors’ championship, we are always looking out for each other on track and bringing a fair bit of points for the team.“

Carry over to Ferrari

Sainz hopes he can also build such a good relationship with Charles Leclerc at Ferrari. “That’s exactly what I want to carry over into Ferrari. I’ve always got on well with my teammates, it’s never been an issue for me and I already get on very well with Charles and I have no problems with that and I’m sure I can also have a good relationship there.”
