A rising star of Formula 1®, Carlos Sainz Jr continued to impress in 2017, with his fourth placing at Singapore the highlight of his season, where he would finish ninth in the Drivers’ Championship, amassing 54 points.
The son of former double World Rally Champion Carlos Sainz, Carlos Jr made his Formula 1® debut in 2015 after beginning his career in karting.
Sainz’s career high so far has been claiming the 2014 Formula Renault 3.5 Championship with seven wins, enough to beat Pierre Gasly and Roberto Merhi.
On loan to Renault again in 2018, Sainz will be eager to impress with Red Bull holding his contract currently, as he looks to further cement himself amongst the big names of Formula 1®.
Sainz chose the number 55 to accompany him for his career as it gives a catchy hashtag #CARLO55SAINZ.
