Carlos Sainz is ready to show more quality next season and make great results. In an interview with the media, the Ferrari driver talked about the differences between the car model and the differences when driving in the simulator.

Sainz still does not want to say anything about progress, considering that it is too early for that.

“I think we're going to need to wait until testing. I think it's incredibly difficult to know. The car in the simulator is behaving differently, for sure.

But I think until we put the car in 100 kilos [race fuel] and used tyres, it's going to be impossible to see how the car is actually treating the tyres, treating the pace and how our race pace is going to be affected."- Sainz said, as quoted by motorsport.com!

Bahrain will be the best indicator of how much Ferrari can do at this moment. The most important thing at this moment is that there is optimism. Looking at the history of this team, we can't help but believe that they are ready to change things.

“That we will only know in Bahrain [testing] when we put it on track. In the meantime, we can just focus on adding performance to that car in the wind tunnel and trying to make it better”.

Ferrari team

Given the inconsistency of the Ferrari team, it is clear that they want to go in a completely different direction.

The main goal will be to create conditions in which Ferrari can be impressive from week to week. Everyone within the team is working hard to show next season that they are made for great things.

“We understood it and now we just put it on track and we try to maximise it every weekend.

I think we are doing a much better job of that. It's almost unbelievable that these swings in performance can happen. But it is the Formula 1 of nowadays. Now we need to focus on making sure… we understand why the car there is strong and why so weak in other types of circuits and corners”.
