F1 News: Carlos Sainz In No Rush To Secure 2025 Seat – “Chatting With All The Teams”

As Carlos Sainz prepares to bid farewell to Ferrari at the conclusion of the 2024 season, the Spaniard is in no hurry to finalise his plans for the following year. Despite the unexpected introduction of Lewis Hamilton to Ferrari’s lineup, Sainz remains composed, focusing on the present challenges and opportunities.

Key Takeaways:

  • Carlos Sainz will part ways with Ferrari after a four-year stint, making room for Lewis Hamilton to join the team for the 2025 season.
  • Sainz is considering Audi as a potential team for 2026, showcasing his open-minded approach to his future in Formula 1.
  • The Spaniard emphasizes the importance of focusing on the upcoming pre-season testing and 24 races, maintaining a patient stance on his future endeavors as a ‘free agent’.

Carlos Sainz’s philosophical approach to his career transition is evident in his careful evaluation of future prospects. Discussing his plans with the media, Sainz highlighted the importance of the upcoming winter testing:

“I guess for all the drivers with expiring contracts, you are looking at all your options, chatting with all the teams and seeing how other structures and teams are progressing and where they are. Winter testing is the priority [right now] as we only have three days of testing, so you have to put your head on where you are losing time and then there will be plenty of time to sit down and decide.”

Sainz also acknowledged the emotional aspect of leaving Ferrari, emphasizing the relationships built within the team:

“I’ve met some very good human beings at Ferrari, and I’ve also met a lot of people around the world that have made me feel at home, right from the beginning. We will leave that emotional part towards the end of the year and try to do the best possible job with the team for the last year.”

Looking towards the future, Sainz remains optimistic about his ‘free agent’ status for 2025, expressing his intention to make a decision that aligns with his long-term goals:

“I am a free agent for 2025 and have no idea where I am going to be racing, so I need to take my time to decide. All options are available and I’ll try to pick the best option for me, not just for 2025 but what is the best option for the next three or four years that I am giving my absolute best to put together a winning project in F1.”

Carlos Sainz’s measured approach reflects a driver deeply committed to both his current responsibilities and his future ambitions in Formula 1. As he navigates this pivotal moment in his career, Sainz’s deliberation serves as a testament to his strategic mindset and dedication to success on and off the track.
