Sainz wants to be world champion with Ferrari: 'Just need some time'

Carlos Sainz will drive his first year in the red of Ferrari in 2021. The Spaniard says he does not want to be the second driver there to Charles Leclerc but wants to fight for the drivers' title.

World title the ultimate goal

Ferrari had a dramatic 2020, but the team says it is on its way back to the top with regained speed on the straights. Sainz dreams of more with Ferrari and believes it is the ideal place to win his first world title. "For me to get to drive for Ferrari at the age of 26 is something I have always strived for", the Spaniard said according to SoyMotor at the Ferrari presentation.

"In five years I want to be world champion and I think Ferrari is the best team to achieve that goal. I think I'm in the right place at the right time and we just need some time to get it done", Sainz continued.

Rebuilding after a poor season

Ferrari's goal in 2021 is not yet to become world champions. The Scuderia is rebuilding after a season where almost nothing seemed to work. The presentation of the SF21 that Ferrari will race in 2021 will follow on 10 March.
