“Have the opportunity to win the title next year” – Carlos Sainz has settled well in his first season with Ferrari and is eager to help his team become world champions again.
Carlos Sainz is arguably one of the most consistent drivers on the grid currently, no wonder Ferrari snapped him up from McLaren. He has settled well at Ferrari, and now has more points than teammate Leclerc – 83 and 80 respectively – and is constantly looking to improve with the team of making Ferrari world champions again.
“We want to continue to improve as a team. And build the team to try to be as complete as possible, and have the opportunity to win the title next year with the new regulations. We are ready for that.”

Carlos Sainz wants to improve further
Despite having more podiums and points than teammate Charles Leclerc this season, Sainz is not completely satisfied with his performances. He wants to improve further, especially when it comes to being consistent over an entire race weekend.
“My pace is right, but there is a lack of consistency. And today you really do have to put all the puzzle pieces in the right place in order to show a good racing performance.
“I’m doing better now and I have been comforted to see that I was always close to Charles in terms of speed. But he has managed to put better weekends together. I know that I can do a lot more.
“I believe as soon as I get a bit more comfortable and I start putting weekends together the way I used to do at McLaren, I think they will have a tougher time beating us than they are right now.”
