Sainz, patient with Ferrari: ‘Madrid waited 12 years to win the Champions League’

Carlos Sainz has compared his current team, Ferrari, with ‘his’ Real Madrid, recalling that the latter took 12 years to get his tenth Champions League (2014) and trusts that his team will not take so long to win with him in their ranks .

“Yes, Ferrari is like Real Madrid,” says the Madrid driver in an interview published by Corriere dellaa Sera. “They are the two most famous teams in the world in their sports. Ferrari is ready to win, each sport has its cycles. We push to get back to the top as soon as possible. On the other hand, Real Madrid, before 2014, waited 12 years to win the Champions League ”, Carlos recalled.

Sainz briefly reviewed his altar of white idols. “Sergio Ramos is a leader. My idols from the past are Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo. Real Madrid lacks its killer instinct, its goals. Many times I tell John Elkann that it is fortunate that Juventus has it. It transmits commitment and sacrifice. At 36 he is a reference ”, he said of Cristiano Ronaldo, whom he misses at his Real Madrid.
