Carlos Sainz Jr. Biography
The son of double World Rally Champion, Carlos Sainz Jr. has racing in his blood. Born in Madrid, 24-year-old Carlos Sainz Jr. enters his fifth year of Formula 1 racing in 2019 with his third team. After stints with Toro Rosso and Renault, Sainz has moved to McLaren for 2019.
Following early success in karting, Sainz moved up to single-seaters in 2010, aged 16. Some good early performances in Formula BMW got the attention of Red Bull, who signed the young Spaniard up for their driver development programme. A dominant display in the 2011 Formula Renault 2.0 series saw Sainz win the title with ten victories. Sainz continued to climb the motorsport ladder, competing in Formula 3, GP3 and Formula Renault 3.5 in 2012-2013. He won the latter series in 2014 with seven victories, which was enough to earn a call up to Formula 1 for 2015.
Over almost 3 seasons with the Italian-based Red Bull junior team, Sainz impressed many with his consistent point-scoring performances, including a best result of fourth at the 2017 Singapore Grand Prix. Sainz made a late-season switch from Toro Rosso to Renault in 2017 and delivered another consistent performance last year, scoring points in thirteen rounds and finishing 10th in the World Championship.
Sainz Jr. moved to McLaren for 2019. After a slow start to the season, he currently lies in 7th place in the World Championship after the French Grand Prix, having scored points in four out of the last five races, including a pair of sixth place finishes in Monaco and France.
