Carlos Sainz Jr has found himself in hot water with the FIA, with an investigation against the Ferrari man launched by the governing body. In the off-season Sainz has been supporting his father Carlos Sainz Sr who is competing in the world famous Dakar Rally.
Despite being out of action, Sainz has still found himself in trouble with the FIA after a clip of the Spanish star surfaced on social media. In the video Sainz Sr is seen working alongside co-pilot Lucas Cruz to perform repairs on their vehicle out in the Saudi Arabian desert.
The Ferrari man’s dad is seen dressed in his full racing overalls alongside his helmet whilst fixing the brake on the left rear wheel of his car. Sainz Jr was also pictured in the background in the clip sporting a bright yellow jacket.
The Spaniard seemingly walked himself into trouble with the FIA, after getting himself involved with the fix. As a result, Sainz Jr is seen speaking with his father about the problem, as they quickly looked to get going.
