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.

FORMULA ONE RACING: FERRARI CONFIRMED THAT F1 RACING CARS’ SPEED IN 2019 WAS NOT AS HIGH AS OTHER CARS OF THE PREVIOUS RACES

Mr. Mattia Binotto who is the team principal of Scuderia Ferrari in Formula One  revealed the causes which led to the dramatic decrease in F1 racing cars’ speed. He said that this was due to the F1’s obligation to new worldwide regulations about aerodynamics. 

Because of this decision, which was made by F1 Organization Department, a consequence had been long foreseen. During each round of the race, cars’ speed has been 1 second slower than those of  the previous years. This was because the total weight of cars were heavier as some parts of the car operation had been forced to change.  

However, Mattia Binotto believed that this change will not make F1 races less intense and interesting, as all F1 races were perfectly designed to maximize the racing cars as fastest as possible. At the same time, F1 races are becoming more fantastic with greater equity thanks to the adjustment of cars, which made them almost have the same weights.

“We have been making a prediction that the effect on cars’ speeds will be 1,5 second each round. This data is recorded from the first time Ferrari racing cars after being under adjustment were tested on a wind tunnel.” Mattia Binotto explained. “ Because of the fact that these cars are much heavier than those last year, and the aerodynamics operation – especially the front bumpers – had been greatly simplified.

“This is also what we expected the adjusted cars to be. Therefore, the main problem now only lies on how to maintain the speed of 1,5 seconds throughout the whole race. Speed of cars after running through bends, ups or downs will only be clarified after real races taking place.
