With Sebastian Vettel leaving Ferrari after this season, the question on everybody’s mind was who could joint Charles Leclerc at the Scuderia for 2021. With Martin Brundle’s prediction turning out to be correct, the answer is Carlos Sainz, Jr., who will leave McLaren for Ferrari next season. Former F1 driver and presenter legend Tiff Needell summed it up best:

Of course, young Lando Norris won’t be left alone at McLaren, as smiling champion Daniel Ricciardo is about to leave Renault for the Woking-based team. The Australian joined Renault over Red Bull Racing for 2019 and had this to say about his latest move:

“In our sport, and particularly within the current extraordinary situation, reciprocated confidence, unity, and commitment are, more than ever, critical values for a works team. I am confident that the 2020 season will allow us to accomplish even more together. Our ambitions and the strategy of Renault DP World F1 Team remain unchanged.”

Heading to the so-far stronger team, the younger Carlos Sainz decided to share his go-kart with the internet:

Ferrari’s 2021 car is promised to be just as red—but to produce more downforce.
