‘Sainz is the fresh air we were looking for, it has integrated very well’

Carlos Sainz, in just over three months that it has been in Ferrari, has already beaten the team, including Mattia binotto. The team boss is very clear that the Madrid native is the ideal driver for them and qualifies his arrival as necessary fresh air.

Binotto points out how well the 55 has adapted in Maranello and not only in terms of the car, it has also fitted perfectly with Charles Leclerc and workers. The Swiss does not hide his joy with the lineup of drivers that Ferrari has this 2021.

“I think he will get along very well with Charles and his team. It has been integrated well, there is a very positive atmosphere. I think it is fresh air and sometimes fresh air is needed. That is what we were looking for. And with regard to this, we are very happy, “he said in statements to Sky Sports F1 and reported on the Soymotor.com portal.

Binotto has highlighted the value of his seven seasons in the World Cup despite his 26 years. “Very good, it was a very positive surprise. We knew he was a strong rider and that he would be fast, even on long runs. He brings experience because, even if he is a young driver, he is an experienced driver in Formula 1 ”, he added.

For his part, Sainz is happy with how his first race with Ferrari went. “Today with these cars the wind on the track is very difficult. I try to find the limit to try to see how the car behaves in such extreme conditions. And yes, I made several mistakes, but I am happy to have made them and to have faced them, “he told the Motorsport.com portal.
