Madrid, May 9th 2018.- Carlos Sainz is living an intense week before travelling to the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya to compite in the Spanish GP. The driver of Renault Sport Formula One Team has visited two of his main sponsors and has talked to the media in both events.

On Wednesday, the Spaniard paid a visit to Renault Spain’s headquarters in Madrid, where he met in person with the workers of all the departments. The driver signed autographs and took selfies before attending the journalists in a comprehensive press conference.

In his words to the media, Carlos expressed his excitement for racing in front of his crowd on the Spanish GP. He also had some special words for the 3.500 plus fans that will live the race from the Grada Carlos Sainz. Renault Spain, Estrella Galicia 0,0 and the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya have all participated in the organization of this grandstand, which is placed at Turn 5,

“The season has been positive so far. I think we are heading in the right direction. We must continue like this, because I can see that the team is getting closer to its goals”.

“The best part of it is that the fourth place of the Championship is getting closer. In Azerbaijan we were right behind the top three teams both in Qualifying and the race”.

“Both the team and myself are happy. I feel really honored for being in Renault. I am dedicating myself to it and I can feel that we are growing. We have learned many things and everything will come in time”.

“To me it is very especial to have the support of Renault Spain, one of the brands with the richest history in our country and the team in which my father raced back in his day. And Estrella Galicia 0,0 is very special too. They have supported me since my childhood, although we didn’t know at that time if we would make it to Formula One. Together we will achieve our goals.

The Spanish GP will be held at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on the 11th, 12th and 13th of May. As always, you will be able to be up-to-date with Carlos via his social media channels and his official webpage.
