Formula 1: Carlos Sainz calls for broader debate on impact of ‘porpoising’

Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz wants a broader debate on the long-term health impact of Formula 1’s new generation of cars. “How much toll should a driver pay for his back and his health in an F1 career with this kind of car philosophy?”. But do we need to run as stiff for our necks and back as we are having to run lately?”. Sainz, 27, has started 145 races since coming into Formula 1 in 2015 and says he is “already feeling” the impact from the car changes. However, Sainz’s former team-mate Lando Norris suggested that there were ways to design a car so that it reduced porpoising without causing back problems.
