Carlos Sainz has spoken about the battles that he has had with fellow young drivers in the 2021 Formula 1 season.
The past F1 season was full of exciting battles on all levels. The young drivers gave us a lot of highlight moments. Most importantly, racing was fair and there were no big incidents.
Sainz is delighted with that and hopes that they will keep the tendency in the future.
“I just enjoy battling guys like Charles [Leclerc], Lando [Norris], and George [Russell] when he will get the Mercedes next year,” the Spaniard said.
“It’s a generation of drivers that, even if I am not exactly the age that they are, I just enjoy fighting with them. I think they are on a very good level, but in a way, they also manage to keep it clean on-track, and put together good battles.
“This year, if you look at the midfield and the way we’ve managed to behave ourselves and race, it’s been a really positive.
“Let’s see next year if we are all fighting for higher stakes if we can keep it that way because personally, I enjoy it a lot. But I feel capable of fighting anyone, for sure.”
