Carlos Sainz: Spanish driver signs new Ferrari contract until 2024 Formula 1 season

Baku, April 23, AZERTAC

Carlos Sainz has signed a new contract with Ferrari, keeping him with the Italian team until the end of the 2024 F1 season, according to Sky Sports.

The Spanish driver, who joined as Sebastian Vettel's replacement in 2021, has formed a highly-rated partnership with Charles Leclerc since his arrival and his previous deal was set to expire this year.

His renewal was confirmed ahead of Ferrari's home Emilia Romagna GP, with Sainz tied down for another two years.

"I have said several times that I believe we have the best driver pairing in Formula 1 and so, with every passing race, it seemed a completely natural step to extend Carlos' contract," said team boss Mattia Binotto.

"I have always said that there is no better Formula 1 team to race for," added Sainz, 27. "And after over a year with them, I can confirm that putting on this race suit and representing this team is unique and incomparable.

Sainz is currently third in the championship after Ferrari's stunning start to the season, 38 points behind leader Leclerc.

Sainz impressively beat his Monegasque team-mate in his rookie year in red but has had a difficult start to the year in comparison despite Ferrari's newly-competitive car, and spun out of the Australian GP.
