Carlos Sainz Sr acknowledges the possibility of the Spanish Grand Prix moving to Madrid, recognising it as an inherent aspect of Formula 1's dynamic evolution. Sainz sees the potential shift as a natural progression, where adaptability is key in navigating the sport's intricate web of transformations.
“I think the presence of a Grand Prix in Spain is fundamental,” the father of Ferrari F1 driver Carlos Sainz Jr said as per Planet F1.
“I don’t know if in the end it will be one or two, but if it is confirmed, and it could be a reality, if the Spanish Grand Prix comes to Madrid, like any Madrileño, [I would be] happy, I know what a Grand Prix implies and the imprint it leaves on a city.
“I think that, on the other hand, Catalonia has had it for many years and enjoyed it, there is no written rule that it has to be for life in one place, it was also in Jerez at the time.
“These are processes in the world of motorsport that are going on and if it really happens, I would be very happy. I encourage anyone who has the ability to decide, and I think it’s a private initiative, so no one can point the finger at anyone and for the money to go somewhere, I think if it is done, it will be a success.”
