On a high note
Carlos Sainz was sixth in the Drivers’ Championship in his first year with McLaren Racing, in a year in which he established himself as a mature driver capable of leading the improvement of the team, which finished fourth in the Constructors’. His best result was a third place in Brazil, his maiden podium in Formula One, which he achieved after a phenomenal comeback drive from the Pit-Lane.

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.
