Carlos Sainz not bothered by lack of media attention

Carlos Sainz is not fazed by the lack of attention paid to him by international media.

Since his Formula One début last year, Sainz has consistently been in the shaddow of contemporary Max Verstappen, but it is not something that is playing on his mind.

"I know that those in the team and around me are very happy," he said.

"If the international press doesn't talk about it, it matters little to me because I know formula one and the people who know say I have been good enough, or better than good enough," the 22-year-old is quoted by Marca newspaper.

Sainz was also asked about the possibility of Toro Rosso technical boss James Key moving to Ferrari.

"In F1 there are always rumours in the press, sometimes just to create some tension," he said.

"But James has always had a contract with Red Bull and Toro Rosso and so, unless something strange happens, I don't think it will change.

"Anyway, he has already designed the 2017 car almost completely, so I'm calm," Sainz added.

    "but it is not something that is playing on his mind."

    The hell it is! Having wet dreams about it from day one. Be honest Carlos, there's nothing to be ashamed about. You'll get your chance next season, just grab the bull by the horns when it's coming at you.
