Why Mercedes, Red Bull and Aston Martin should try to sign Sainz for 2025

OPINION: Carlos Sainz’s Melbourne brilliance was made all the more remarkable by his performance so soon after major surgery, but it was also a reminder he’s still without a Formula 1 drive for 2025. Here’s why the championship’s other big hitters should all be trying to sign him and an explanation of why he’s still available

“What happened at the beginning of the year, then the podium in Bahrain, then the appendix, the comeback, the win. It's a rollercoaster, but I loved it. I'm extremely happy."

Carlos Sainz was understandably effusive after securing his third Formula 1 career win in the 2024 Australian Grand Prix. It was a superb performance, made all the more remarkable given he’d got back into his SF-24 in Melbourne just 14 days after having keyhole surgery in Jeddah to remove his appendix.
