Sainz hits reverse after Barrichello criticism

Carlos Sainz has hit reverse gear after insisting he would not be happy “being a Barrichello”-like driver at Ferrari. Now, Spaniard Sainz is paired at Ferrari with Charles Leclerc, who is widely regarded as the official Ferrari number 1 of today. The 27-year-old said he was “very disappointed” with the way the Formula 1 media reacted to his comment. “When I saw the headlines, I was very disappointed,” said Sainz. Sainz said he will also enforce a new rule about how he deals with the media from now on. “As a matter of principle, I do not make any statements about fellow drivers, least of all Ferrari drivers who have won grands prix and world championships for Ferrari,” he said.
