This Saturday the team Ferrari was a big surprise. Every year, around the festivities, a great dinner is held in which the ‘Scuderia’ pilots are invited. In this event, the meeting between Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz. Both drivers have a good relationship off the track, but they had never shared a team.
The Monegasque lived together for two years with one of the most important stars of the Formula 1, Sebastian Vettel. In his first season, Leclerc beat Vettel in number of points, and finished third in the championship. However, this year they were unable to do much work as the results were bad for the team. Despite that, he finished ahead of the German.
In his first contact with the team, Carlos Sainz was all the time with Mattia Binotto, head of the structure, and Leclerc. So much so, that when they finished their visit to the factory, the pilots invited Binotto to a private dinner, in which they began to shape the team project for next year, since until January they will not have contact at the factory.
After the private dinner, the three members of the team answered some questions to the media. Charles Leclerc warmly welcomed Sainz with a grand gesture. «Carlos is having his first day wearing red today and I like being able to welcome him to the team. I’m looking forward to working with him in 2021. I’m sure I can learn a lot from Carlos. He is very competitive and highly motivated “, said the Monegasque
Team boss Mattia Binotto assured that he hopes to have a good result in the 2021 Championship, in which they will seek to return to the top three of the qualifier. «I hope that Carlos contributes to the title of Constructors, which for us is very important. It is important that both drivers do very well in the race to be able to add all the possible points for the Constructors’ title, ”Binotto said.
