Sainz follows her and finally gets her at Silverstone


The Ferrari driver becomes the second Spaniard in Great Britain to win an F1 race, and the first since Alonso in 2013

In the most crazy race since that apocalyptic Abu Dhabi Grand Prix that decided the last World Cup in favor of Max Verstappen, Carlos Sainz made history by debuting his Formula 1 win locker and becoming the first Spaniard to achieve it on the sidelines by Fernando Alonso, author of the previous 32 victories, the last one back in 2013 (Montmeló).

The Ferrari driver's triumph at Silverstone was the perfect metaphor for his sporting career;

an exercise in constancy and consistency, two of his greatest attributes apart from speed, always essential in this discipline.

This victory, moreover, breaks the streak of six in a row that Red Bull accumulated, and returns to the championship some of the spice that it had lost in recent dates.

Regardless of the statistics, this test will nourish the summary of the best moments of the season with several of its sequences.

An appointment in one of the most historic circuits of the calendar, a very relevant scenario in the life of Sainz, who back in 2013 got into an F1 car for the first time (Toro Rosso), two years before debuting in the contest .

From then on, his progression was without fanfare but very solvent, enough for Renault to notice him (2017), for McLaren to trust him for his rebirth (2019) and for Ferrari, the most universal symbol of the car racing, he will hire you for sure.

150 Grands Prix have passed before Sainz could open the champagne from the highest step of the podium, a circumstance that makes him the second rider who has completed the most events until then, only behind the 190 that Checo Pérez had to wait.
