“We make such a choice not for two years”- Mattia Binotto promises that Carlos Sainz’s signing is a long term investment by Ferrari.
Carlos Sainz signing up for Ferrari meant that the Italian outfit is ready to present the youngest lineup on the grid since 1968, in the form of Sainz and Charles Leclerc.
On the other hand, the parallel rise of Mick Schumacher after his F2 championship victory and Ferrari revealing the motive behind sending him to Haas led to fans speculating that Sainz is a temporary arrangement before Mick becomes ready for the big move.
However, Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto has dismissed the speculations and claimed that Sainz’s hiring is a long-term vision mapped by Ferrari. They see him in their future.
“I repeat that he is a very young driver. We have the youngest line-up since 1968. Normally we make such a choice not only for two years, but it is also because we try to create solid foundations for the future and looking at the long term as well,” said Binotto.
“So we hope Carlos will renew. And be with us in the coming years, “Binotto said in a statement to the GP Fans web portal, as per the Soymotor.com.
Carlos Sainz wants to revive Ferrari.
After his first on-track session with Ferrari, Sainz displayed his passion for the team and claimed to be committed to the cause of pulling back Ferrari to where it belonged- at the top of the table.
According to him, he also envisions a long term partnership with Ferrari. Meanwhile, Ferrari fans have started liking him for his commitment and off-track behaviour.
Also, along with Leclerc, Sainz wants to build a formidable partnership with a strong personal bond, similar to what he had with Lando Norris at McLaren.
The good thing is that Sainz have always shared a good rapport with his teammates, and according to the Spaniard he long ago approached Leclerc to talk about their alliance from 2021 onwards.
