Sainz ‘very happy’ at Toro Rosso despite rumours


Carlos Sainz is “flattered” by those who think he deserves better than Toro Rosso but insists he is “very happy” with the team.

Sainz has been linked with a move away from Red Bull’s junior team, yet the Spaniard does not feel like he is being held back by Toro Rosso.

“I think I’m in a place where people notice me and I’m flattered that there are those who think I should have a car fighting for victories and more,” Sainz told Spain’s El Confidencial.

“But I don’t think my car is not worthy of me.

“Toro Rosso is a very serious team that slowly shows that it can do things very well with a strong technical team.”

“Many big teams would want to have James Key. We have our budget, it’s not the highest but we still get things done. Today, I am happy where I am.”
