Sainz on why Ferrari transition has been so smooth

Carlos Sainz believes his frequent team changes in Formula 1 have been instrumental in helping him adapt to Ferrari's SF21

Formula 1 driver Carlos Sainz believes the fact that Ferrari is his fourth different team in the sport, has helped him adapt to his new surroundings much quicker than several other competitors.

Having made his F1 debut in 2015, Sainz has raced for Toro Rosso (now Alphatauri), Renault (now Alpine), McLaren and made his Ferrari debut at the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix. The Spaniard thinks his constant flurry of team changes has aided him to settle into his new surroundings much quicker.

"Yeah, well it's something that at first when I changed from Toro Rosso to Renault, I thought 'well okay these two cars are completely different, but maybe this is maybe a one-off', Sainz told RacingNews365.com and other members of the media.

"But then changing from Renault to McLaren it was then completely different [cars] again and then McLaren to Ferrari was completely different again. So it gets opening my eyes a bit how different everything is from those four different teams and how much you need to adapt in that way.

"I guess I have some practice with it being in four different teams in five or six different years, obviously it has given me that awareness, but I would say it's more down to detail. F1 cars nowadays are so complex and they have so many things that you can actually do as a driver inside the cockpit and change the tools, change so many setup tools to play around, that is they are very complex and you need to put the time, the dedication to it.

"But at the same time, if you don't have the capacity as a driver also to adapt, it's impossible."
