Carlos Sainz refuses to be second driver at Ferrari

It's Grand Prix Thursday in Barcelona and Ferrari makes a move for the local colour. He schedules a meeting with Carlos Sainz, the Madrid driver who has as many chances for his team to win the Champions League as he does to hit Montmeló.

I always have a crazy desire to do well at home. I imagine the desire of the public and you can imagine mine ».

Ferrari brings evolutions to his car in the rear wing and on the ground. Will they be enough to rise to success? «We can bring three tenths of improvement per lap, but if the others also bring them, what is it, positive or negative? What we have to do is improve the improvements.”

Carlos Sainz is missing a breath to enter the dimension of triumphs, and the man from Madrid recognizes that patience has a limit. “That little hurts, really. We are fighting for pole positions, we are with the best...».
