All about Carlos Sainz
STATISTICS IN FORMULA 1
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.
A STORY OF EFFORT AND OVERCOMING

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.
