Sainz during Race 1 of the 2010 Formula BMW Pacific season at Sepang International Circuit

Sainz raced in Formula BMW Europe in 2010 with the EuroInternational team He was also part of the Red Bull Junior Team programme He made his Formula BMW debut during a guest drive in the Formula BMW Pacific series at Sepang Because he was a guest driver, he was ineligible to score points, however at his first races in Malaysia, he got second place at the opening race That debut was followed by a 4th place On the following race day, he retired in the first race but won the second race It was this start that got him a place at the Red Bull Junior Team Helmut Marko applauded Sainz and his strong start in motor racing He finished 7th in the following race but again exceeded expectations by winning again He missed the next races in China but came back to Singapore He finished 6th in the first race and 2nd in the second race He missed the Japanese races but returned to the season finale in Macau to win Overall, in 9 races he achieved 3 pole positions, 2 wins, and 2 fastest laps

In Formula BMW Europe, he started his career with a podium position of 3rd and 6th place at the Circuit de Catalunya At Zandvoort, he took 5th and 2nd place At Valencia, he scored 7th and 10th place A weekend at Silverstone saw him take 3rd place and a victory in the following race, his first that season Hockenheim saw him take 11th and 6th place A 4th and a podium position of 3rd enlightened his championship hopes but Robin Frijns was on a charge, scoring a podium position in every race but 3, two he finished in 4th A double retirement at Spa put him out of championship contention An 8th and 6th at the season finale at Monza followed He finished the season 4th with 227 points

Sainz also competed in the UK Formula Renault Winter Cup, finishing 6th in the first race and retiring from the second race at Snetterton

Formula Three

During the 2012 season, Sainz raced in both British and Euro Series Formula 3 championships Racing for Carlin, he won four races, finished nine times on the podium, as well as scoring a pole position in the British championship, finishing sixth overall in the final championship standings He scored two podiums and two pole positions in the Euro Series championship, finishing in ninth position overall

GP3

Sainz competing for MW Arden during the 2013 GP3 Series, at Spa-Francorchamps

In 2013, Sainz signed with Arden to compete in the GP3 series Most Red Bull Racing Juniors race for Arden as it is co-owned by Red Bull boss Christian Horner and driver Mark Webber His first race weekend in the series did not go as expected During the first qualifying session of the year, he managed to qualify in 5th place and was only 5 tenths off pole sitter Kevin Korjus However, he, as well as Alex Fontana and Patrick Kujala, were penalised 10 places for ignoring yellow flags during free practice During the beginning of race one, Sainz managed to get up to 13th place by passing Alex Fontana and Jimmy Eriksson off the start By the start of lap 3, he was already 13 seconds behind the leader, however, this was due to him being stuck in traffic Sainz had made it up to 8th place with his teammate Daniil Kvyat until both cars lacked grip Because they were both pushing to get into the top ten for points, neither driver decided to manage their Pirelli tryes and so by the end of the race, Kvyat was 20th and Sainz managed to get 15th place and so effectively he never gained or lost any positions However, worryingly for him, he finished 51 seconds off first placed man Tio Ellinas Sainz started in 15th place for race 2 on Sunday morning At the end of lap 1, he managed to gain 6 places to find himself in 9th place As they approached lap 2, the safety car was deployed due to an accident behind, giving Sainz time to save his tyres With 5 laps remaining, Sainz was up to 8th place During the next lap, he managed to put a move on Jack Harvey’s ART car to move up into 7th place Sainz eventually would finish in 7th place However, post race investigating revealed the Sainz’s car was underweight, and so he was disqualified from the final results from race 2, thus scoring no points during what was a difficult weekend for not only Sainz but for his teammate, Kvyat, who retired during the race due to contact with another driver

In Valencia, Sainz began, and finished, the race in 8th place In race 2, he started in 4th place and managed to get up into 3rd place by the end of lap 1 He remained in that position, scoring a podium for the first time in GP3 Before the weekend, Sainz had not tallied any championship points By the time the weekend was over, Sainz had managed to obtain 24 world championship points, 4 for fastest laps in both races He was now in 6th place in the championship and was looking healthy in the title fight

It was another bad weekend for Sainz at Silverstone, as in both races he got poor results During the first race, Sainz was squeezed off track, falling to 9th place By mid distance, it was all looking good and it looked even better when he managed to overtake Lewis Williamson to get into 8th place Williamson then moved alongside Sainz to try and overtake but Sainz kept moving over towards him until there was contact Williamson was sent into a spin whilst Sainz continued to circulate round the track Due to the damage to his car, Sainz fell down the order until he crossed the finish line in 13th place In race 2, he finished where he started, in 13th place

Formula Renault 35

In 2014, he switched teams to DAMS In the season opener at Monza, he finished 18th in the first race but won the second He left Monza with 25 points, beating his previous seasons’ score by 3 points Another win at Aragon meant he doubled his score and in race 2, he finished in 4th Another 4th place followed at the one race in Monaco The weekend at Spa followed with another 2 wins Moscow followed and he did not perform well 14th and 6th meant that he only took 8 points from a possible 50 At the Nürburgring GP Circuit, he won race 1 but in race 2, he retired In Hungary, he was no match for Roberto Merhi who led by half a minute from the rest of the field in the wet Another 6th place followed in race 2 In France, he won and scored a total of 50 points to extend his championship lead over Merhi
