Enters in the conference room of the circuit of Jarama with the peace of mind of one who has well done his work, who he finished with a good taste in the mouth her first season: “it Has been very positive, I have had a good debut. It has been very complicated mainly because of reliability issues, but we have still tried to surprise us each time that we had the opportunity and that’s why, despite the problems, I’m happy with my first championship. I don’t like to put myself a note, but if I do I would say a 7 or 8”. It is the balance that made Carlos Sainz of its 2015, in a ceremony with one of his sponsors, Estrella Galicia, who attended Engine.is. Your best time is what is clear: “fifth place in qualifying at home. I went to Montmeló ten years, being a monkey, to see Fernando Alonso. And ten years later, I qualified ahead of a Ferrari, a Williams, Red Bull. That was when I realized that I had fulfilled a dream of truth. For me Fernando is a friend but also as a God, and he qualified fifth, which was just like he used to do at Ferrari. I put on a smile that I didn’t take it off anyone.”
Without the reliability problems, he would have been closer to his companion: “I don’t know if ahead or behind, but at least points. Very much depends on all the circumstances, but I can confirm that all how pleased we are with Max are with me, and that gives a lot of peace of mind because they know what they could have done without so many problems. It is the most important thing for me.”. Especially Helmut Marko and: “he Is very happy, says that we have to follow as well, which has been a very good year and we’ve surprised more than one that perhaps did not trust both. Wants that next year more and better, so all in all very positive,”. In any case, ensures that between pilots, in general, there is not that much difference: “If you upload all to a Toro Rosso, with two sets of tires, and 20 laps, would like very much six-tenths between the best and the worst time. This year with my partner, in the best time of all sessions he had not more than two tenths. Hamilton not we would get more than half a second in the same conditions, nor Max, nor me”.

And what about next year? Ferrari engine, improved foreseeable: “We will have a little more horses with the Ferrari. That has to give us a little help especially in the first half of the season, and see what we can do. I want to have fun, keep learning and finish more races than this year, that sure will give me many more points”. Insists that will be the Australian Grand Prix will mark his destination: “In the first classification we will see where we are going to be and what your goal is. How to beat Red Bull? At the end of the year we drew half a second, so if Ferrari gives us between six and eight tenths (say 50 or 60 horses), we could be ahead, but Red Bull has found their weak points, and in these three months may improve so much that even with this improvement the Ferrari engine we can beat. Are 200 million more than budget and are Red Bull, there is no more secret, you already know what they have achieved”.
