F1 fans will have to give up their best bromance couple on the grid. Carlos Sainz moves in with Prancing Horse and Daniel Ricciardo takes his cockpit at McLaren. Although even Ricciardo is a fun sport to hang out with, fans hardly believe that they will ever be able to get the Norris Sainz chemistry running.
Carlos Sainz left the McLaren camp a week ago, and the team already misses him. In their effort to to bid him goodbye, the team had documented a wonderful farewell video. The emotion invoked within was so pure that it made several fans teary. However, the flip side of the story is the bromance will not have to die so soon.
Carlos and Norris have developed a powerful bond in these past two years. Mere distance will not restrict their association with each other. The two have nurtured each other like brothers and they would still meet each other weekend. The difference, Carlos will be in Burgundy overalls and Norris wearing the McLaren colors.
Social media already saw both of them teasing each other. A clip has Carlos wishing Merry Christmas to all his fans for the first time in the traditional red Ferrari color. However, Norris did not let it slide and slipped in a cheeky comment. “Did you buy that on Ebay?” Well, Carlos might have missed his chance on the internet once but not again. “No, but I can ask Ferrari to send one to my best fan,” darted back his reply.
Carlos Sainz will look out for Norris on the track
The 2021 season will be feisty as both the McLaren racers promise a lot, the former as well as the present. The Spaniard held his season with the English very well. His flawless performances and promising stints were the major reason that Ferrari chose him for the job. Besides Leclerc, Carlos will have a tremendous responsibility, but Mattia is sure he will do well.
Lando Norris has also been performing very well. His 2020 season saw him getting back in sync with his car and his crew. Several times he has displayed the intent and vigor of a champion. Well, he and Carlos matched against each other in 2021, we already have a good feeling about it.
Carlos’ first day at Ferrari was overwhelming for the Spaniard. He had made his way to the Maranello factory for the seat fittings of the car he will drive in the winter test. Charles cannot wait for the dates in January to hop into the car and get going. He was very excited to begin with the Italians and we presume he will help them in their peril with the form.
