Sainz replaced at Ferrari in Saudi Arabia

Carlos Sainz will sit out the remainder of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix weekend.

The Spaniard will be replaced by reserve driver Oliver Bearman, who will make his Formula 1 race debut.

Sainz was absent during the traditional pre-event media day on Wednesday in Jeddah, returning to his hotel due to feeling unwell following a brief spell at the track.

However, he returned to the event on Thursday and took part in the first two practice sessions despite still suffering from symptoms.

Bearman is carrying out reserve driver duties at Ferrari and Haas this year and made his FP1 debut with the latter in 2023.
