Carlos Sainz insists he is having no second thoughts about his Ferrari move, despite the team’s alarming start to the season.

Sainz’s dream transfer was confirmed before the new season back in May, with the Mclaren driver to replace Sebastian Vettel in red in 2021.

While Ferrari were one of the favourites for the 2020 title, they have struggled in the three races so far – dropping back into the midfield, behind McLaren, and already making changes to their package and technical team. However, Sainz said he is confident he has made the right choice.

“I know that now there’s a lot of question marks regarding Ferrari’s performance,” stated the Spaniard, 25. “But if you go down in history, obviously Ferrari’s the most successful team in Formula 1.

 “I do think Ferrari is the right place to be and that’s why I took that decision.”

Ferrari’s high point of the season so far was Charles Leclerc’s unlikely second place at the season-opening Austrian Grand Prix, although he and Sebastian Vettel have each failed to make Q3 in qualifying once.
