(ANSA) - ROME, DEC 7 - Carlos Sainz told Expo 2020 Dubai that
he is satisfied with his first year at Formula One's glamour
team Ferrari during a visit to the World Fair.
"It has been a positive first year at Ferrari for me," the Spanish driver said.
"I had a huge challenge to be quick and bring points and progress for the team without any winter testing before jumping into a new car - I think I managed to achieve that.
"I had a few podiums and quite a lot of point finishes... I feel ready for whatever comes in 2022".
He added that he was hopeful of doing well at this weekend's season-ending race in Abu Dhabi "I hope I can finish the season on a high," he said.
"Hopefully a good top five, maybe even a podium [finish].
"Things start to unravel at the front but I've been feeling really comfortable these last few races and I cannot wait to complete the last race on a high". (ANSA).
