Sainz tevreden met eigen ontwikkeling en prestaties bij Ferrari tot dusver

© Aangeboden door GPblog NL

Carlos Sainz lijkt zich dit seizoen feilloos aan te passen bij het team van Ferrari. Hoewel de laatste weekenden van de Spanjaard constant wel wat foutjes bevatten, iets dat vaker dan eens overwerk voor zijn monteurs betekent, liggen de verhoudingen tussen hem en teamgenoot Charles Leclerc over het algemeen dicht bij elkaar. Iets dat we Sainz bijvoorbeeld ook al zagen doen toen hij teamgenoot was van Verstappen bij Toro Rosso.

Geen verwachtingen

De krachtsverhoudingen tussen de twee Ferrari-coureurs zijn minimaal, iets wat ook terug te zien is in de stand op de ranglijst van beiden. Leclerc staat met 104 punten op een zesde plaats, direct gevolgd door zijn teamgenoot met 97,5 punten. Op dat vlak doet Sainz het dus een stuk beter dan andere coureurs die van team wisselden, zoals Daniel Ricciardo bij McLaren en Sergio Perez bij Red Bull Racing.

Dat is Sainz zelf overigens ook opgevallen, zo meldt hij bij Soymotor.com: “Ik kwam aan zonder al te veel te verwachten, zonder al te veel verwachtingen bij mezelf te leggen want ik had in totaal anderhalve dag om te leren hoe de auto werkt. Ik denk dat ik 150 of 200 ronden heb gereden voor de eerste race.” Toch ondervindt ook Sainz dat rijden bij Ferrari meer is dan alleen snel rijden. “Je realiseert je dat hoe snel je ook bent, het ingewikkeld is. Ik ben verre van 100 procent, maar dan zie ik de positie in het kampioenschap en hoe dicht ik ben bij waar ik wil zijn en dan zeg ik ‘als ik zo blijf werken, denk ik dat het niet lang meer zal duren’.”

Gelijkenissen met Leclerc

De Spanjaard denkt dus dat het alleen nog maar beter kan worden, terwijl hij zelf ook aangeeft best veel gelijkenissen te vertonen met Leclerc: “We lijken veel meer op elkaar dan je je kunt voorstellen. Dan kijk je naar de gegevens en je ziet dat de ene driehonderdste van een seconde van de andere afligt in de ene bocht en de andere driehonderdste van een seconde in de andere. In de Zandvoort-kwalificatie ligt hij zes duizendsten voor op mij en in Monza lig ik een halve tiende van een seconde voor op hem.”

Omdat zijn teamgenoot langer bij Ferrari actief is ziet Sainz ook dat Leclerc zich wat meer op zijn gemak voelt in de SF21, maar Sainz is desondanks blij met de stappen die hij heeft gezet. “Ik zie hem in de race met meer vertrouwen in de auto. Ik ben niet de agressieve Carlos van McLaren en ik weet zeker dat als je aan de Carlos van een jaar of twee geleden denkt, je niet zou zeggen dat hij nu zo berekenend en analytisch is.”
