Carlos Sainz is preparing intensively for his first season with Ferrari, but has found time to answer questions from fans on Instagram.
Q: How were your first days in Maranello?
Carlos Science: In January, I already spent three or four days at the team base. In order to fully prepare for the tests, I need to work a lot on the simulator. I get to know Scuderia employees, and I need to remember a lot of new names, but this is very bad for me!
Q: When will we see the new livery for your helmet?
Carlos Science: Faster than you think! She’s almost ready.
Q: When will you get a Ferrari sports car at your disposal?
Carlos Science: I hope soon.
Q: What’s the best thing about being a Formula 1 driver?
Carlos Science: Chatting with a lot of interesting people. It is generally believed that the best racers in the world compete in F1, but also the best engineers, the best aerodynamic specialists, the best mechanics and tire workers, the best strategists work there. The list goes on. And we, racers, cooperate with everyone.
Question: What is the best way to keep fit?
Carlos Science: Head to the gym: Intense resistance exercise can burn more calories than half an hour on the treadmill. You will quickly become slimmer, stronger and healthier.
Question: What do you do after a failed race?
Carlos Science: I’m analyzing everything that happened. I try to be self-critical and understand everything in order to avoid repeating mistakes. But don’t berate yourself too much – it’s better to turn the page and go play golf.
Q: What do you think of last year’s Portuguese Grand Prix?
Carlos Science: It was one of the best moments of my career in Formula 1. I always liked to fly on a slippery track, because there you have to improvise, quickly adapt and adjust the driving style. That day I decided to take a chance – and everything worked out. I still watch the recording of the first laps of that race from time to time! (At the start, Carlos played several positions, ahead of the Mercedes drivers and for five laps was in the lead).
Q: Do you miss Lando Norris already?
Carlos Science: Not yet. Everyone needs a break from each other. This does not mean that I will miss him. Or it won’t. We’ll see.
Q: Do you have a favorite Netflix series?
Carlos Science: Drive to Survive. (“Race to survive” is a documentary series about Formula 1). I hope everyone has already watched it!
Q: What’s your favorite classic Formula 1 car?
Carlos Science: There is no such one, but I have a favorite classic boat from Riva Yacht.
Question: How often do you cut your hair?
Carlos Science: (laughs) What a question! Once every three to four months.
Question: What’s your favorite song?
Carlos Science: Smooth Operator by British singer Sade.
Question: What is your favorite dish to cook?
Carlos Science: Hamburgers!
