The Spanish driver facing forward to the race at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin
Carlos Sainz: "After the weekend in Russia I flew back to Faenza to spend some time with the team, before going back home to see my family, as well as doing some work on the sim. I'm smiling and I feel good. I started training again straight away, as soon as I got home".
"I don't know much about Austin because I've never been there and only driven it on the sim. The track looks amazing and I think I will really enjoy it there, especially the first sector which looks very fast. From what I've heard, it's one of the best race weekends on the Formula 1 calendar. The whole city gets involved with F1 and I've been told there are some really good steakhouses..."
"And wait until we get to Mexico - I remember when I went there earlier in the year for an event with Red Bull I ate some really good Mexican tortillas... Okay, it's something I won't do as much this time as I am on a diet during race weekends, but maybe on Sunday night we can have some. and as its new nobody knows much about it really. While I was there the track was still being built, but it looked very good, especially the part of the stadium, it looks pretty interesting. I really like the city, I look forward to visiting it again!"
