Carlos Sainz deserves his rising status in Formula 1.

Carlos Sainz deserves his rising status in Formula 1.

That is the view of former F1 driver and fellow Spaniard Jaime Alguersuari, who over a decade ago became the youngest ever F1 driver.

Now retired from racing and a professional DJ, he is turning 30.

The only Spaniard left on the grid now is Sainz, who is being linked with a potential move from McLaren to Ferrari for 2021.

"If he has a good car to be in front he will get many points and the opportunity to get many podiums," Alguersuari told Marca sports newspaper.

"But it's not a question of his quality, talent or determination. Carlos has already demonstrated all of that more than once and not only in Formula 1.

"He is a very good driver and he deserves to be where he is now," he added.
