"I think he has the sporting and champion mentality of his father," says Martin Brundle., Formula 1 driver in the 80s, over Carlos Sainz. The McLaren driver ends his contract in 2020 and Brundle believes the team should accelerate the renewal if they do not want to lose it.
"I always supported him going to McLaren when they weren't quite sure about signing him," he explains. And he adds that he sees it as a future option for Ferrari. "They should worry if the contract runs out," he says.
"Sainz was very close to Verstappen when they were in Toro Rosso, but I think it was a political issue," says Brundle.
