The Formula One Netflix documentary has been making waves ever since its worldwide release. Aside from putting the drivers in the limelight, the series also brings to light the unsung heroes. One person is Carlos Sainz Jr’s manager and cousin, Carlos Oñoro.
Oñoro has stuck with Carlos throughout his career and has been very close to him. Up until then, Oñoro had largely been anonymous in the Renault garage and working in the background. But now, thanks to the Netflix documentary, Oñoro is getting some amount of recognition.
Recently, at the Australian GP paddock, fans clamoured for Carlos Oñoro to join in on the selfie with them and his cousin.
Now, for 2019, Sainz and Oñoro are with McLaren and they are eager to have a fresh start. Sainz Jr is partnering McLaren young driver Lando Norris this year. Meanwhile, his vacated Renault Formula One seat has been taken by Daniel Ricciardo for this season.
As Friday practice wrapped up, Sainz Jr found himself in 14th position in both sessions. Fortunately for him, he was ahead of rookie teammate Norris in FP1 and FP2. However, the weekend is long and there are more opportunities for both drivers to improve.
