THE HELMET

Different, minimalistic, recognizable. Carlos’ helmet is a singular one. The powerful contrast between its electric blue and the papaya orange of the McLaren MCL34 makes it easily distinguishable. The Spanish flag is at the core of the design, as it has been since since early in his career. It includes a series of details that are relevant to him, like the star of Maria de Villota and a chili, his nickname among his friends.

McLaren F1 Team
Carlos Sainz joins the McLaren F1 Team in his fifth year in the series, willing to help with his expert vision to the growth of his team. Aged only 24, he arrives at one of the most historic teams in the grid as a consolidated driver, one that is able to combine both performance on track and technical leadership out of the car.

A STORY OF EFFORT AND OVERCOMING

Carlos Sainz took his first steps in karting and, as any driver who wants to reach Formula 1, he had to prove himself in every step of the way. In his case, he had to work even harder to convince those who doubted his talent because of his family name. The young Carlos spent his youth working to achieve his dream, an extraordinary effort in which he had to handle the pressure of international racing and the rigor and constancy of his academic studies, which he never quitted. Time proved him right.
