Sainz extends Ferrari deal until 2024


Carlos Sainz has signed a new deal with Scuderia Ferrari, securing his future for two more years. 

The Spaniard signed for Ferrari on a two-year deal, beginning his time at Maranello in 2021, partnering Charles Leclerc.

After snatching two podiums in the opening two races, the deal was largely expected to be announced early into the season, finally arriving in the build-up to the team’s home race at Imola.

Discussing his new deal, Sainz said:

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

“My first season at Maranello was solid and constructive, with the whole group progressing together.

“I feel strengthened by this renewed show of confidence in me and now I can’t wait to get in the car, to do my best for Ferrari and to give its fans plenty to cheer about.”

Despite speculation surrounding the future of Mick Schumacher at Ferrari, the outfit has opted to sign Sainz for another two seasons, allowing them to use Sainz’s ability on a multi-year deal while assessing Schumacher’s future.

Team principal of Ferrari, Mattia Binotto, said:

“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, thus ensuring stability and continuity.”

Sainz will be hoping to use this new-found security to bounce back after his DNF in Australia.
