Formula 1 – Carlos Sainz Sr. hopes McLaren F1 team has ‘hit rock bottom’

Carlos Sainz, the world rally legend and father of current Renault F1 driver Carlos Sainz Jr., hopes that there’s nowhere to go but up for McLaren.

After all, the 24-year-old Sainz is moving from Renault — the fourth-place team in the Formula 1 Constructors’ Championship — to sixth-place McLaren next year. The elder Sainz would like to believe his son is moving on to a better place.

“I sincerely believe that there are capable people at McLaren,” Sainz said. “It is a team capable of reacting after a year where I want to think they hit rock bottom. There are people there who have said, ‘It was not the engine; we’ve done things wrong and it’s enough now. We’re going to start doing things right for next year.'”

Sainz thinks his son did well with Renault this year to sit 12th in the driver standings.

“At the beginning, it was difficult for Carlos to understand the car,” Sainz told Movistar. “He did not feel comfortable, and it’s when you are comfortable that you can get that last tenth or tenth and a half.”

The 56-year-old Sainz thinks his son did better at the end of the year, but he’s now hopeful he will shine in an orange car of McLaren in 2019.

“Everyone thought that with the Renault engine, at least, (McLaren) would be ahead of the official Renault team, and it has not been that way.”
