Sainz is still busy negotiating F1 future: 'We are talking to almost everyone'

Carlos Sainz is feeling a bit better since his appendectomy prior to the Australian Grand Prix. The Spaniard is still recovering, despite taking the win at Albert Park. With his race win, Sainz managed to get a good audition for his potential new team in 2025, although the Spaniard does not yet have any concrete news about his future in Formula 1.

It was the comeback of the race weekend in Australia: Sainz, who had to undergo surgery to remove his appendix two weeks prior to the race in Melbourne, managed to win the race with force majeure. However, the Spaniard is still recovering from his operation, and told the press conference in Japan that he stayed in Australia for another week to continue his recovery instead of immediately flying to Japan. Although he is not yet training heavily, in his own words he is not yet able to ‘use heavy weights’, his recovery is going well.

However, Sainz is less confident that his Ferrari team can also score well in Japan. The Spaniard expects that this track is not very suitable for the SF-24 to perform well on, based on how they did last year. Sainz did not finish higher than a P6 finish, but hopes that things will go better for the Scuderia this year. “I think the team has done a very good job this year,” Sainz remains hopeful. De Madrid immediately confirms that Ferrari has brought a small upgrade to Suzuka. “We’re getting a small upgrade to the rear of the car, with more upgrades to come later in the year.”

Sainz has no news yet about his future

The Spaniard is currently in his final year as a Ferrari driver and will be replaced by Lewis Hamilton in 2025. The Madrilenian is not yet sure where he will end up next year, but Sainz’s victory in Melbourne has stimulated discussions surrounding his future. The Spaniard admits that he is in discussions with several teams about a seat for 2025. ‘We are talking to almost all of them, but I have no news for you. Now is the time to speed things up and hopefully we can resolve it sooner rather than later.”
