Biography

 

Carlos Sainz Biography

Carlos Sainz Jr

Carlos Sainz Jr

As the son of a former World Rally Champion who shares his name, Carlos Sainz has a racing pedigree that matched his first team-mate Max Verstappen, son of Jos Verstappen.

Sainz and Verstappen did some a battle at Toro Rosso in 2015, in what is one of the most fascinating sub-plots to an intriguing season.

Sainz is a late comer to the grid, as he wasn’t expected to be racing in Formula 1 in 2015.

Sebastian Vettel’s move to Ferrari freed up some room at Red Bull and the management picked Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kvyat.

However, Sainz should not be taken lightly. His junior career is impressive and it is clear he has raw speed and potential. But the 20-year-old has been fast tracked into motorsport’s top division after just a solitary season in GP3 and a Formula Renault 3.5 championship last season.

Toro Rosso are were confident that Sainz would be a success, and both they and Red Bull were impressed with how he has performed in testing events. That’s no substitute for the real thing though, and Sainz will be scrutinised from the start.

2016 was a good season for Carlos he scored 46 points and finished 6th as best result in 3 races. If it wasn't for Max Verstappen he certainly would have replaced Daniil Kvyat instead of Max. The Toro Rosso STR11 was a very good chassis, except the 2015 Ferrari power unit wasn't up to the job.
