Sainz is fed up with himself: 'Mistakes I keep making'

Carlos Sainz is in his first year at Ferrari. Although he is already performing much better than in the early stages of the season, he still sees areas where he can improve in the coming years.

Whereas Ferrari had a dramatic year in 2020, things have changed a year later. The Italian team is battling with McLaren for third place in the Constructors' Championship and with Charles Leclerc and Sainz in sixth and seventh place respectively in the World Championship.

Sainz wants to improve at Ferrari

Despite this, Sainz believes he can perform much more in the coming years. "I feel like I'm still far from giving 100 hundred percent. But when I see where the championship is, I don't think it's going badly at all," he told "I feel far from the level I need to get to, but that's where I'd like to get."

"It's going fast and comfortable, but there are mistakes I keep making," Sainz continued. "You have to be with the team for a few years to get the best out of the car. I feel like I know the car well, but I still have moments when I wish I had known aspects about the car earlier."
