The Spanish pilot, Carlos SainzHe is a great friend of the Mexican Sergio perez. This is why in the last hours, the McLaren came to the crossroads when asked about his opinion of the departure of ‘Checo’ from Racing Point. This was confirmed in the last week. Additionally, Sebastian Vettel will take his place on Lawrence Stroll’s team.
Sainz was very concerned about the current situation in Formula 1. According to the Spaniard, talent is not so important today when it comes to getting a seat. In addition, he told what his relationship is with the Mexican, who has not yet defined what his future will be. The two great options are the team Haas and Alfa Romeo.
Several pilots had words of praise for Pérez. However, Sainz was the leading voice among his colleagues. “What Checo shows is that in F1 not everything is your performance. Judging by performance alone, there is no reason why he should leave Racing Point or they don’t like him, ”Sainz told the media.
Furthermore, the Spaniard said that: «It makes me a little angry because I have a good relationship with him and I respect him a lot as a driver. It reminds you that this sport is like that, that it gives you very little, but it is the one that we have chosen to compete and be professionals and you have to accept it. I hope you get a seat that motivates you, that you fancy. “
Finally, that of Mclaren aimed at the business of Formula 1. «There are interests, things that come with performance that are very important and for me Checo is a shame, because the team he has trusted for so many years, which practically saved him from bankruptcy and which finally manages to produce a good car for him and now the team does not want to continue with him is a real shame “, sentenced the Madrilenian.
