Italy surrenders to Carlos Sainz: “Masterpiece, like Villeneuve in 1981”

The Italian press did not have it easy Carlos Sainz. They expect an explosion from the Spaniard in 2022, with a Ferrari that started the course as a winner before the unstoppable rise of Red Bull, but at that time, Carlos He found a car that was completely at odds with his style. He had to bow his head and, while his companion Charles Leclerc winning races at the beginning of last year, Carlos had to change his style and make what he had to do mentally come naturally to him. That process was long, difficult and prevented him from taking advantage of that winning car to become famous. The Italian media praised Leclerc and at the start of the season, they viewed Carlos as the number 2 and Charles as the number 1 of ‘rossa’. But since Monza, things have changed, and in Singapore, Carlos Sainz confirmed it. In just one year, the image of the Italian press about Sainz is completely different. Also the ‘tifosi’.
