In an interview with the French portal F1i.com, spaniard Carlos Sainz has analyzed the being his first season in Formula 1. A year that has been able to know a different version of itself: “In this category you find a person who is totally new to you. You go through many different situations, many mental states different, many new circumstances different, a lot of media, things that consume your energy, and see how you react, how you feel,”. However, the new Sainz that has discovered in itself not surprising in the sporty side, except in a paragraph: “I Only was a little surprised -and I’m happy with it, my pace in the wet. Obviously the car helps, but I think I did better than expected”.
madrid regrets all the problems that have prevented him from adding points on a more regular basis (takes 18 in 17 races, just ahead of Ericsson, the McLaren and the Manor): “I’m surprised how difficult it is to spend an entire weekend without anything bad to happen. I don’t know if it’s because I’m a newbie, but I can think of all”. All of these negative circumstances make Sainz consider this season as one of the most unfortunate your career: “Especially in terms of reliability, I feel that has happened everything that could happen. There was a part of the championship where in five consecutive races was in the points and I could not finish. It’s a tough year, but in the end, thanks to the speed and to some races, the feeling towards me is positive still. In a normal year, with so many dropouts, or I would be, but there are still positive aspects that make”.

comparison with Verstappen
His partner, also a rookie Max Verstappen, will get more of the double points (47 versus 18), but Carlos is not worried about that comparison in what you may think Toro Rosso: “The team knows what has happened this year with the reliability. Red Bull has calculated how many points I could have without my dropouts, and are very happy with it. A lot of people would be surprised to know the points I could have accomplished, three or four times more than I have. It does not matter if in front or behind Max, but more than now”. Sainz told her how he leads with the Dutch: “The relationship has been pretty good despite the pressures under which we work. With a year as well, it would have been easy to lose a nerve or have an environment a bit strange between us, but we’ve both done a great job without great things between him and I, so we have both been able to demonstrate our potential”.
looks forward to 2016
Unless last-minute surprises, Red Bull will not change your alignment of pilots in any of the two teams. The Spanish you want, to the next championship, to have a season without problems mechanical, that allows you to expose all your skills: “I Want to prove that throughout the year I can add more regularly if it allows the reliability. I just want to become a pilot that the big teams see it and think: ‘If we put it in our car, will add many points’. I would also like to continue showing some good performances in terms of overtaking, and the rest will come with more experiencia”.
