Now, Carlos Sainz, the Spaniard faces a critical decision. Audi’s long-term project beckons, but it comes with a caveat: Sainz would have to write off the 2025 season, as Sauber (the team Audi will control) won’t officially enter the sport until 2026.

Audi, the German carmaker, has been eyeing Carlos Sainz for quite some time. Recently, rumors swirled that both Nico Hülkenberg and Sainz were top contenders to join Sauber next year before Audi’s takeover of the team in 2026.

According to reports, Audi has given Sainz a two-week ultimatum to confirm his seat with them from 2026 onwards. The clock is ticking, and Sainz must decide promptly.

Audi sees Sainz as a valuable asset—a beacon to guide their entry into Formula 1 in 2026. His experience could be crucial in establishing Audi as a front-runner on the grid.

Why the Ultimatum is crucial for Carlos Sainz?

The 29-year-old must weigh his options carefully. Mercedes has a vacant seat after Hamilton’s departure, and Fernando Alonso’s future with Aston Martin remains uncertain. Red Bull is also in the mix.

Sainz’s choice transcends financial considerations. With the latest technical regulations taking effect, he aims to align himself with a project capable of competing for the world title. Age won’t sway his decision; he seeks the best opportunity to win now.

Sainz had an unexpected setback when Ferrari replaced him with Lewis Hamilton for the 2025 season. Despite this disappointment, he remains committed to giving his best performance in his final season at Maranello.
