Why Sainz could cause a problem Ferrari thought he would solve


Ferrari signed Carlos Sainz Jr for the 2021 F1 season off the back of the tension that built between Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel in 2019. And while Sainz hasn't joined as a formal number two, there are indications that Ferrari expects him to be a strong back-up to Leclerc, banking points to help the team in the constructors' championship. But as Edd Straw explains, while Sainz won't be a deliberately disruptive force in the team, his level could be higher than Ferrari bargained for, and he's unlikely to have headed to Maranello happy to be Leclerc's wingman.
The move that made twice-rejected Sainz worthy of Ferrari

    Sainz is an excellent driver. Leclerc has sooo much talent...over a season Leclerc is the guy, he will be a world champion. I 100% believe that Leclerc is one of the drivers if you put him in the Hamilton car, he would be a world champion.

    Having a number 1 and a wingman only works if you have an extremely dominant car, like Mercedes, where the wingman will finish in 2nd place in most races. However Ferrari will be fighting in a very tight midfield, and having 2 very good drivers is actually not a bad idea.

    Sainz is one of my fav drivers out there, and I fear if he settles too much in what Ferrari expects him to be, Ferrari will destroy his carear. It happened before, it'll happen again... His best move is to deliver performance after performance, even if it upsets Ferrari. Make it clear that his track position would only be better with a better team/car. He'll burn his bridges with Ferrari, but at least he'll come out kicking...

    It doesn't matter how strong or weak Sainz is, because Ferrari held Binotto, and it will be another very bad year for Maranello, one to be ashamed, like the last one. Who has any doubt that the only in proofed 2020 car will make more than a few podiums and zero wins???

    Ferrari has become a commercially based logic team, signing Sainz is mainly for this sole purpose, can anyone imagine how much commercial success Ferrari could have in spain and native latin Italy from having him. If turns to be a great driver and give Lec run for his money, that would even boost his image and popularity to a greater extent. Hes a good driver and consistent, which are the values of a champion character. Best wishes to him.

  • delbroox

    In my opinion this video has some inaccuracies put there just for the sake of speculating on other stuff. 1) Binotto didn't talk about Sainz as a future world champion simply because, after the bad season, he clearly had to change his narrative. He has surely received pressure to deliver by Ferrari, and now whenever there's even a slight talk about Sainc and Leclerc battling for the title, he's always quick to remark that The Team Comes First. They are driving for Ferrari and that's the thing that counts. I guess if they get back at the top then they'll be free to race each other. So I don't see that as "subconciously" labelling Sainz as a 2nd drive. 2) When talking about Vettel not matching Leclerc, i'd say the huge difference is more down to car development than drivers' skills. After all both Ralf Schumacher and Helmut Marko said it. I am quoting them, not making up stuff. A driver does not just forget how to drive. Simply when it was clear that Vettel would have left the team, Ferrari started developing the car paying attention only to Leclerc needs, as it should be. But that meant that Sebastian lost a lot of against Charles in the process.

    Obviously there are things in contracts that will never come out public including who the team favors and who will be a shield driver. So even if Ferrari say (or any team) that there's nothing written in their contracts, its bs. With that being said, I truly like Saint, a lot. But Leclerc is imo the better driver. I like Leclerc too btw and I'm happy with Ferrari's driver lineup. But Ferrari without any doubt has Leclerc as their #1 driver and will Obviously support him to be ahead of Sainz as much as possible to be ahead in the championship. Sainz will be the shield driver. But also it all depends on whether Leclerc really puts in the results or not, is up to Leclerc whether Ferrari keeps him as the favorite or if Ferrari switch to Sainz in the future as their favorite. For now Sainz is just a shield/support driver and there's nothing that will change that for now, period.
