Carlos Sainz Snr may not have been in Singapore but he watched his son’s victory every step of the way and celebrated as he crossed the finishing line.
Sainz Snr is currently out in Sadina, Italy supporting his Extreme E team but made time to watch the Formula 1 action which was taking place halfway around the world.
After a masterful drive from his son, Sainz Snr was shown celebrating with his team as Sainz Jnr crossed the line.

It was a near perfect weekend for the Sainz family as Sainz Snr’s Extreme E team enjoyed a successful Saturday with victory in the Grand Final. A few hours later and Sainz Jnr secured the fifth pole position of his career putting him in good stead for Sunday’s race.
While the Extreme E team could only manage fourth, Sainz Jnr duly converted his pole into a second career win and his father watched him cross the line.
In a video posted by the Extreme E team, Sainz Snr cheered as his son won the race before hugging his team.
He then gave a rallying cry to his team, saying “now let’s go out and win the f**ing redemption race” although that was not to be.
