He thought that the work that I was doing in the simulator for him and for the team was important, and he had the detail of saying goodbye to Red Bull by sending a letter to all employees personalized for each employee, ”the Spaniard recalled in the interview.
“I was a simulator pilot at that time. He knew that at four in the morning I spent hours in the set-up recommending settings for his race in Australia and he had the detail of sending me a letter thanking me for that effort in the simulator and for those hours of work that he had put there, “he added. Sainz, who assured that his relationship with Vettel is beyond what happens on the track, saving him a very special affection.
