Carlos Sainz admits that he has held preliminary talks with McLaren over extending his current deal with the team, but is in no rush to put pen to paper as the new season hasn’t even started yet.
The Spaniard joined the team from McLaren ahead of the 2019 season, and flourished in his new surroundings alongside rookie driver Lando Norris, with the pair combining to give the team a fourth-placed finish in the constructors’ championship.
McLaren, keen to establish stability, were the first team to announce their driving line-up for 2020 which consists of Sainz and Norris partnering again.
Looking even further into the future, Sainz says discussions have happened about extending his stay, but he remains “happy” with how things are at the moment.
