Carlos Sainz believes that next year will be a tough year for him with the new historical team which is suffering in performance this year.
Carlos who had an upset weekend as he didn't start the race due to an exhaust failure was considered about Ferrari’s performance. He told SkyF1 ”Of course I want [Ferrari to improve], I'll be the first one in the factory pushing to find more power and I'll be pushing everyone as soon as I get there.
He was shocked seeing his future employers struggle and expressed the need for change. He added: "Obviously, not good. They're not happy with their performance this year.”
"When you lose so much power from one year to the other - which is not the normal trend in F1, normally you expect to stay the same or gain - you know at Spa you're going to get in trouble.
“You need to accept 2021 is going to be a tough year for everyone. Every team needs a fresh start to try to trouble Mercedes because at the moment Ferrari or Red Bull are just too far off.
“They are doing a better job and we need to reconsider how we approach F1 and what kind of team you want to have a chance."
The Spaniard has been developing Mclaren F1 since the day he joined the team in 2019 replacing Fernando Alonso who left the team hopeless and pointless back then. Sainz has approved himself from the first year, the Spaniard has consistently scored points from the fourth round of that season of Formula 1, he also finished strongly at the Brazilian GP scoring his first-ever podium in F1 after he was initially classified 4th, thanks to Lewis Hamilton who received a penalty which made the Spaniard elevates to 3rd after receiving a penalty for causing a collision with Alexander Albon.
The 26-year-old has astonished everyone with a brilliant start from 20, last grid, following an engine problem.
However, no one has thought Ferrari would perform poorly even worst than expected in 2020, the Italian outfit was robbed its essential meaning of these red cars are ”fast on straight lines” in some points!
As the Prancing Horse is heading to their home sweet home, last GP was the worst performance ever they've produced at Spa. A circuit they dominated, one-two in qualifying last year, as well witnessed Charles Leclerc’s first ever in F1.
Although the weather was playing a huge role too as the temperature was cooler than last year’s, nevertheless, they have been dramatically dropping in pace from the qualifying with P13 and P14. In race day, they were losing 1.3s per lap at Spa, what a huge surprise for all Tifosi's especially that this year is a very special season for Ferrari celebrating their 1,000th GP at the Tuscan Grand Prix, after the Italian GP (at Monza) which takes place over 59 laps of the 5.245-kilometre Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello in Italy.
Ferrari Team Principal Mattia Binotto has admitted the sport's most successful outfit's revival may take "many years" as they wait for the next major rules overhaul in 2022, with limited engine upgrade opportunities until then.
Ferrari might finish 6th or 7th in the constructors’ championship this year, which would be their worst performance since 1980.
Wishing the best luck of all this weekend at a track which has the similarity characteristics of Spa - would Ferrari ever get worse this season?
