Carlos Sainz will return to El Hormiguero 3.0 next Thursday

The driver will speak with Pablo Motos and his crew about next F1 season

Carlos Sainz will pay a visit on next Thursday 14th to El Hormiguero 3.0, the famous program on Spanish television Antena 3. He will explain how is he preparing himself for the challenge of his second year with Scuderia Toro Rosso and his feelings after the first season in Formula 1.

The driver from Madrid was already in Pablo Motos' TV show in June after his first eight races in Formula 1. He confessed there how did he know he would be Formula 1 driver.

"I traveled to Abu Dhabi, I did an F1 test and when the day ended, I was coming to the hotel room when my father called me. He said, ‘Hey, I need to tell you something important so come to my room and we will eat here'. We had a year full of good news, bad news, good news, bad news... then I arrived, he opened the door smiling, he gave me a hug and told me: ‘You officially are a Formula 1 driver, Red Bull just told me'", Carlos explained excited.

After a funny interview where he also spoke about his good relationship with Fernando Alonso, Carlos read a letter he wrote to his parents when he was 16 years old. On it, he asked permission to race in Macao despite failing at school.

The young Spanish driver also interacted with the stars of the show: puppet ants Trancas & Barrancas. Of course, speed was the main topic of the night, so they proposed Carlos a game: he had to guess which object, dropped from a certain height, was falling faster than the other.

It was a busy night: Carlos experienced the magic of Jandro, he did some exercise with Pilar Rubio, he showed how a seatbelt works or how diesel and gasoline engines work and he also drove a kart in a blind test against Pablo Motos.

Now, Sainz returns to the show to be part of a bunch of new surprises prepared by the crew of El Hormiguero. You can see it live on Antena 3 next Thursday January 14th at 21:45h.
