The son of the two-time World Rally champion of the same name, Sainz Jr is a member of the Red Bull junior programme which has promoted the likes of Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo to Formula One.
A winner of Formula Renault 2.0 in 2011, he became the first Red Bull junior to claim the Formula Renault 3.5 championship in 2014. Though he had been overlooked for a Toro Rosso seat the year before, his World Series triumph saw him elevated to F1 for 2015 where he will partnered Max Verstappen in an all-rookie line-up which started the season with a combined age of 37.
A series of reliability issues saw him overshadowed by Verstappen in his first year, but proof of his talent was obvious from his seven finishes in the points. A big accident at the Russian Grand Prix saw him hospitalised after qualifying, but he was declared fit ahead of the race and ran as high as seventh before a brake failure saw him retire.
Claiming the 2014 Formula Renault 3.5 championship with seven victories - enough to beat fellow Red Bull junior Pierre Gasly and Roberto Merhi.
Being overlooked for the 2014 Toro Rosso seat.
Sainz has chosen the number 55 to accompany him for his career. He has already popularised the hashtag #CARLO55AINZ amongst his supporters.
