SAINZ: “I DID NOT COME TO FERRARI TO BE THE SECOND”

The newbie racer Carlos Sainz of Ferrari claimed that he is in full determination to be the number one racer but not a supernumerary for his teammate Charles Leclerc.

“The contract did not have the term to force me to become the second racer. They did say that the last goal of the whole team should be placed in the first position, however, did not offer me to be the supernumerary of anyone else.”, Sainz said to the Marca.

Saiz will take place for Sebastian Vettel, the main racer of Ferrari team since the next season. Many people assume that Ferrari took on Sainz to support Charles Leclerc – the young racer who had greatly showed off its ability as well as potential in the previous season.

“What I know is that I need to try my best and donate all of my time for Ferrari, and I will do everything to win. I do not pay attention to the color of the car. I behave almost the same way to all racers, we are competitors and have to compete with others. If something wrong happen, I will come up with the right decision. Do not worry.”, Sainz said.

In 2019, Sainz reached a new goal in his racing career after being ranked the third in the Grand Prix Brazil race. This is the first time this Spanish racer was on the top 3 in a F1 race.

When being asked if this title would decide whether he can sign a contract with Ferrari, Sainz replied: “There are a lot of factors. However, being on the top 3 of such an intense race in which I had to start at the last minute has made a huge impression on them. However, I thought that some years of competing for Toro Rosso or Renault offered me a lot of values. When an A-level racer like Ferrari wants to sign a contract with you, it means that they had to analyzed lots of factors.”, Sainz shared.

MCLAREN REFUSED TO MAKE CONTACT WITH VETTEL

The leader of team McLaren Andreas Seidl and President Zak Brown turned down the possibility of signing contract with Sebastian Vettel.

“Sebastian has never been a choice for us. We have neither negotiated about any Vettel issues nor offered a contract for him”, the leader McLaren Andreas Seidl shared his point with Sky Sports in the recent 15th, May.

Seidl has a really close bond with Vettel, partly because both of them are German. In the 12th, May, Ferrari announced that they will have to say goodbye to Vettel at the last of the season. This Italy racing team announced that Carlos Sainz – a racer who is at this present belonging to McLaren – will make replacement for Vettel.

In terms of Viettel, he has never revealed about his personal plan. However, according to the judgements of some experts, this racers who has successfully won the worldwide championship 4 times can impermanently say goodbye to F1 as having no suitable goals as well as destinations.

“It is obvious that Vettel is such an amazing racers who made the championship come true 4 times in F1. However, we can not see any mutual goals between 2 sides. McLaren has spared his attention to other racers such as Daniel Ricciardo or Carlos Sainz and we have never made any negotiation with other racers apart from them. We have been taken aback to hear the news that Vettel had left Ferrari, however, at this time, the chance that he will be together with McLaren is quite slim.” The chief executive McLaran Zak Brown said during an interview with Sky Sports.

Brown claimed that it has not only been Vettel but also Ricciardo who are aimed as the target racers for McLaren in some upcoming years. Along with the event that the Australia racer is going to sign another contract with Renault, McLaren is standing a big chance. “We has been spotted Daniel for years, however missed him in the first effort. We will remember Carlos – the one who finished all the jobs well-done.
