The words of Carlos Sainz

Carlos Sainz during the latest episode of the podcast “Nude Project“ spoke open-heartedly about his career: "When I was ten years old, everyone was picking on me because beating Sainz’s son was prestigious. It was then that my father told me that in this environment you either bite or get bitten. In F1 we all think we are the best, if you don’t have that mentality; you can’t beat the other 19".

Interesting in partitcolare the passage related to the appendicitis that prevented him from qualifying and the race in Jeddah: "It was the two hardest free practice sessions of my career, on a circuit with very fast corners. I had not eaten, I had no energy, I sweated more than I should have. I suffered a lot“.

"They told me that if I had gone on and not had emergency surgery I would have taken much more serious risks, I could even have died if the’appendix had burst&quot, revealed the Ferrari driver, later replaced on the occasion by Ollie Bearman.
