Sainz urged to "raise the bar" with Ferrari

Carlos Sainz has been urged to "raise the bar" this season following the launch of its F1-75.

Ferrari became the seventh of the 10 teams to reveal its all-new 2022 machinery in an online ceremony on Thursday.

After a strong first campaign with the Maranello-based team, Sainz is confident of his ability to push the Scuderia forward into the new era of F1.

“I’m more than ready for this season," said the Spanish driver.

"2021 was a great year for me because I managed to learn how the team works on the inside, to adapt to a new environment but also to mainly learn about the Ferrari brand and how everything works in here and it was a great experience for me.

"Now it is time to take the team to a different level, take it to a different step and us drivers and the team together we want more things and more success in 2022.”

Ferrari enjoyed a strong season last term to finish third in the constructors' championship after enduring a 40-year low in 2020.

Reflecting on Sainz's strong performances in his maiden year with Ferrari and addressing him directly, team principal Mattia Binotto added: “When we met and decided to go together a year ago, no one would have expected you to be so fast, so soon.

"It has not been a surprise to us but I think you fit very well in the new environment since the start of the season.

"You improved throughout the season and somehow you have finished in a very strong manner. I’m expecting you to raise the bar with Ferrari in 2022.”
