Will Carlos Sainz be able to make his first 2023 podium finish? While he hits the track, his fans are more curious about who his sister is.
Carlos Sainz Vázquez de Castro was born on September 1st, 1994, in Madrid, Spain. He also goes by the names Carlos Sainz Jr.
He currently drives for Scuderia Ferrari in the Formula One championship along with his teammate Charles Leclerc.
Sainz’s career as a driver dates all the way back to his childhood when he initially drove GoKarts.
The driver later started moving up to the ranks of Formula BMW, GP3, and now Formula 1.
Even though considered a number 2 driver for the Ferrari, Sainz has shown his amazing prowess as a driver. He is constantly proving that he should not be underestimated.
Other than motor racing, the driver loves soccer and can be seen golfing and also skiing.
In May 2023, ahead of the Monaco GP, he injured his upper right leg during a charity football game, but the injury was not serious.
The street track of Monaco is considered to be one of the most difficult tracks in motorsports, where overtakes are very rarely seen.
It’s high time for the Ferrari drivers to prove their worth, and Monaco GP could be the one for the Spanish driver.
