All about Carlos Sainz
STATISTICS IN FORMULA 1
Different, minimalistic, recognizable. Carlos’ helmet has an iconic design. The powerful contrast between carbon fibre black and the colours of the Spanish flag make it instantly distinguishable. It also includes many details that are relevant to him, like a chili (the nickname given to him by his friends) and the star of Maria de Villota.
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.
The Renault RS18 is Carlos Sainz's car for 2018 season, a work of engineering in which the pilot has collaborated on the team’s factory with his expert vision.View more
