After it was announced that he will be replaced by Lewis Hamilton in 2025, Carlos Sainz says: “I’m fine, don’t worry.”

Lewis Hamilton’s move to Ferrari in 2025 caught almost everybody in the F1 world by surprise, and it definitely surprised Carlos Sainz, as he learned he is out of a racing seat after 2024.

In a talk with Sky Sports Italy, Sainz revealed his feelings about the news.

“It’s certainly not the most normal feeling to start the season,” the Spaniard said.

“But the moment I put on the helmet in Bahrain and take to the track, the only sensation I’ll feel will be the desire to go faster and faster – and also aiming for victory in the world championship.”

Sainz added the news did not disturb him too much.

“I’m fine, don’t worry. I’m not disappointed. Experiencing Ferrari from the inside I already knew several things and I prepared myself with the team in view of future changes.

“As I said, however, I don’t want to think about anything other than giving my all in the season that awaits me with Ferrari.

“I’m calm. We know that we have a very important season ahead of us. This will be my last year in Ferrari, so I want to do the best I can.”

Since Sainz is out of a racing seat, and Mercedes is out of a driver in 2025, many are linking him with a switch to the German outfit. The Spanish driver says he is not at all worried about his future.

“I am aware of how much I am worth as a driver. For this reason, when I look to the future, I am very calm. Good things will definitely come, but for now my goal is to give my best with Ferrari.

“In my career I have always made steps forward. Improving more every year. This has always been and always will be my philosophy, and it will be the same this year.

“In 2024, I will turn 30 but I feel younger and more motivated than ever,” Sainz concluded.
