Carlos Sainz: “It’s time to accelerate everything” / Formula 1

Carlos Sainz Jr. it is without a cockpit for the next year. As part of the Suzuka race, he talked about what he liked in conversation. And it announces that it’s “time to speed things up a bit.”

Carlos Sainz Jr. is one of the most successful of the recent unemployed in Formula 1. Since it was clear that Lewis Hamilton is moving to Ferrari in 2025, Carlos Sainz knows: he has no cockpit for next year.

The Spaniard is currently on a promotional tour and has been linked with several teams. No wonder: the Spaniard’s good performance with victory in Australia and fourth place at the World Cup speaks for itself.

He told Sky UK after the Suzuka race, where he finished third: “I don’t know where I’ll be next year.” Future planning is currently underway.

Sainz also: “I’m talking to a few teams because that’s what my management team and I have to do if I’m out of work for next year. So we’re talking to everyone.

Associated with Sainz are Mercedes, Aston Martin, Red Bull and Sauber, which will be Audi from 2026. So in fact almost half of the field.

Sainz on the discussion: “It’s about going deeper and seeing what is more real and what is the best option for me and my future. But I have no news to share yet.”

What’s most important to him is: “It’s time to speed things up a bit and get everything done sooner rather than later.”

After a strong start to a big year for the driver market (most driver contracts expire in 2024) with the move from Hamilton to Ferrari as well as the extension of Lando Norris at McLaren and Charles Leclerc at Ferrari, the transfer carousel of the “silly season” . ” is on System 1 now stopped.

In addition to Sainz, his partner Fernando Alonso also recently pushed the envelope and announced that he does not want to wait until the summer to make his decision. So it looks like the wild ride will continue in the next few weeks…
