As Formula One reaches Circuit de Barcelona – Catalunya in Spain, all eyes are glued to local superstar Carlos Sainz. The 27-year-old has got a 100 per cent scoring record around this place, where overtaking can be a challenge, and the last time Ferrari won here was with a Spanish driver Fernando Alonso in 2013. Now with Renault-owned Alpine, two-time world champion Alonso remains the only Spanish F1 driver to have won at home.

Ahead of the highly-anticipated race, Sainz was quoted stating that his goal is to extract the maximum out of our vehicle and try to win the Spanish GP. The Ferrari driver has been on the podium three times, including second in the Bahrain opener. The Scuderia Ferrari Spanish driver Carlos Sainz recently presented his unique Ferrari helmet design for his home race at the Circuit de Catalunya.

While presenting his helmet, Sainz said that the helmet is really special for him and rated it as ‘one of the most beautiful helmets he wore during his career’. He further thanked the designers for designing it in such a stylish manner. The Ferrari driver further added, “I know we will receive maximum support from the grandstand at the track, and I can guarantee that fans maximum effort from myself and the entire team, to give them plenty of reasons to cheer.”

Sainz has also expressed his concerns over the porpoising – which causes cars to bounce on straights as it gains and loses ground-effect downforce on driver’s necks and backs. The problem has affected many teams on the grid, including Ferrari and Mercedes, and was an unexpected side-effect of this year’s new regulations.

“We need to take this matter into consideration of how much of a toll a driver must be paying for his back and his health in a Formula One career. With such cars’ philosophy, we need to start a debate on priority, more than anything else,” he quoted.
