Carlos Sainz has to undergo surgery for appendicitis and misses the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix | Formula 1 | Sports


Carlos Sainz has been diagnosed with appendicitis, will have to undergo surgery and will thus miss the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix this weekend, as reported by Ferrari in a message posted on social networks. The young F2 driver Oliver Bearman will take the Madrid native’s place in qualifying this Friday and in the race on Saturday.

Sainz had had a promising start to the season, after finishing third in the Bahrain Grand Prix, ahead of Charles Leclerc, his workshop mate, and only behind the two Red Bulls. “I felt strong,” the Ferrari driver confirmed the good feelings at the end of the race last week. A start that has now been slowed, in what will be his last season with the Italian team.
