Ferrari Replaces Vettel With 'Oustanding' Spaniard


Scuderia Ferrari has signed Carlos Sainz Jr. as a replacement for Sebastian Vettel who parted ways with the Italy-based team a few days ago.

AllNews reports that this development was confirmed by Sainz himself on Thursday.

Sainz formerly raced for McLaren team.

The 25-year-old Spaniard will join Charles Leclerc in a rare youthful Ferrari line-up after what will be two years at McLaren and an impressive 2019 campaign when the team's fortunes improved and his stock rocketed.

"I am very happy that I will be driving for Scuderia Ferrari in 2021 and I'm excited about my future with the team," said Sainz, who finished an impressive sixth in last year's championship.

"We've embarked on a new cycle with the aim of getting back to the top in Formula 1," Mattia Binotto, the Principal of the Scuderia Ferrari said according to Sky Sports.

"It will be a long journey, not without its difficulties, especially given the current financial and regulatory situation, which is undergoing a sudden change and will require this challenge to be tackled in a different way to the recent past.
