“There is nothing true about it, it’s not correct,” Carlos said upon arriving at the Miami circuit paddock.

In recent hours, following information circulated on social networks by Antonio Lobato, there has been speculation about Carlos Sainz’s alleged ‘No’ to Audi’s proposal.

However, the main subject himself has denied rejecting the brand, which will enter Formula 1 in 2026 and has offered the Madrid-born driver a three-year contract, including the transition season of 2025 with Sauber.

“There is nothing true about it, it’s not correct,” Carlos said upon his arrival at the Miami circuit paddock, where the sixth race of the 2024 World Championship kicks off this Friday.

The Madrid-born driver thus denied refusing to opt for Audi and stated that he prefers to take his time before committing to any team after his departure from Ferrari at the end of the season.

“I think my father’s relationship with Audi is a very important factor to consider. But there are many more factors involved in my decision. I really hope that Audi can compete for victories in the future, because that would mean another car fighting for wins and a huge brand like them. I wish them the best, even without having decided whether it’s a possibility for me or not,” Carlos said to the newspaper Marca.

After announcing the signing of Nico Hülkenberg, Audi wants to confirm its second driver soon, and Sainz is not sure if they will wait for his response.

“The only certainty I have is of myself, that I want to make the right decision. That’s also why it’s taking a little longer to resolve (my future) and why I want to see all the available options before making any fundamental decision,” he said.

Sainz asserts that he seeks “a good medium-term project that allows me to focus not only on today and now but also on the medium-term future. I just want good people around me.”

As for other potential destinations, many speculate on Red Bull or Mercedes, the Spaniard acknowledged that “there are certain things that are not entirely up to me and we will have to wait for them to materialize. But in the meantime, it’s not that we are completely stopped; we are still in conversations and progressing as much as we can,” he concluded.
