This is a brilliant driver line up, either way, you look at it for Ferrari. Either Sainz comes in or Leclerc push each other and Ferrari forward or if Leclerc is clear number one then in Sainz they have a quick driver to regularly score podiums to back Leclerc up.

Meanwhile, Lawrence Barretto, Formula 1 senior writer, analyzes what Sainz and Ricciardo moves mean for Vettel and the rest of the driver market. I recommend this interesting investigation.

Personally, I think Sainz will do brilliant there and is one of the most underrated drivers on the grid. I’m a Hamilton fan but watch out Mercedes coz this will take Ferrari up a level. Sainz seems very balanced and mature for his age. I think he will handle the new gig well.

Sainz to join Ferrari instead of Vettel

Ferrari has established Carlos Sainz to join the team for the 2021 season to replace Sebastian Vettel. And it is not a surprise because Ferrari wants someone fast and consistent, so they can bring the constructors’ championship back to Maranello for the first time in over a decade.

The Spaniard is contracted to McLaren until the end of the 2020 Formula 1 campaign, but has now signed a two-year contract to compete a youthful driver pairing at Ferrari alongside Charles Leclerc. Team Principal Mattia Binotto described having Sainz and Leclerc as their 2021 driver pairing as «the best possible combination».

It marks the major move of Sainz’s career to date, with the 25-year-old following in the footsteps of his idol Fernando Alonso in joining Ferrari. And after 13 points-finishes in 2019 — including a first podium in Brazil — few would argue that he isn’t ready for the drive. Sainz started his F1 career at Toro Rosso, making his debut at the Australian Grand Prix in 2015.

However, he decided to cut ties with the Red Bull driver program following Max Verstappen‘s rise to prominence and headed to Renault two years later, before signing with McLaren for 2019 campaign.

Today Carlos Sainz has also thanked McLaren and his fans:

The statement comes just days after Vettel and Ferrari revealed the German would not be renewing his deal following the team’s failure to win a title during his five-year stint at Maranello. Vettel, a four-time world champion after dominating the sport with Red Bull from 2010 to 2013, has been tipped by some to join Lewis Hamilton in an all-star line-up at Mercedes.

Sainz’s move has produced a ripple effect for the F1 driver market, with Renault’s Daniel Ricciardo taking his seat at McLaren. He was also mentioned as a probable candidate to take the vacant seat at Ferrari. Now Ricciardo will head to his third team in three years in F1 by joining the British team.

P. S. This is a great move from Ferrari. He is a very fast driver with great speed and he will push Leclerc very hard. Everyone already calling Sainz a #2 driver remembers that’s what we were calling Leclerc and he showed us he could easily be the Number 1 driver. I think it’s a breath of fresh air at Ferrari with these two drivers. Let’s hope the team can work on the best possible car to help these great drivers get the results they want too!

Vettel and Ferrari have been in talks for several months about an extension, with Team Principal Mattia Binotto saying the four-time world champion was his number one choice to race alongside Charles Leclerc next year.

The whole relationships of Vettel and Ferrari briefly:

However, they have been unable to agree terms on a new deal, leading to today’s announcement. «My relationship with Scuderia Ferrari will finish at the end of 2020,” said Vettel. “To get the best possible results in this sport, it’s vital for all parties to work in perfect harmony.

“The team and I have realized that there is no longer a common desire to stay together beyond the end of this season. Financial matters have played no part in this joint decision. That’s not the way I think when it comes to making certain choices and it never will be.
