In the round-up: Carlos Sainz Jnr says it will be difficult to match his new team mate Charles Leclerc initially due to the limited amount of running allowed before the 2021 F1 season.

What they say

Sainz has already had a seat fitting for Ferrari, who he will drive for next year:

I think we will get along well. I already have some contact and I do get on with Charles already, we’ve been talking already the last few months a bit.

He’s a great talent. I think he’s driving at an incredible level right now. He’s performing, for me, one of the best on the grid right now. So it will be tough to match him, especially at the beginning, without any winter testing and anything. The relationship with him, I will try and keep it as professional as possible. And then if we obviously get on well outside the track, I’m happy with that.
