The F1 paddock is highly anticipating Carlos Sainz’s return to the grid at the Australian Grand Prix. The Spanish driver’s temporary absence, necessitated by a sudden appendicitis that led to surgery, left his seat at Ferrari temporarily vacant. In his absence, young driver Ollie Bearman stepped in at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, delivering an impressive performance by securing a seventh-place finish and earning his first points in the sport.
Ferrari has now indicated that Sainz is preparing to reclaim his position for the upcoming race in Melbourne, given he passes the requisite fitness test. This development was hinted at earlier in the week by Ferrari’s team principal, Fred Vasseur, and was further confirmed upon Sainz’s arrival in Melbourne.
In a statement regarding Sainz’s return, Ferrari expressed confidence in his and Leclerc’s abilities to contend at the front of the pack, reminiscent of their competitive edge in the initial races of the season:
“Carlos Sainz is expected to be back in the car, having had to miss Jeddah with appendicitis.
“He and teammate Charles Leclerc will most likely be fighting at the front of the field, as they have done in the first two rounds.”
