First images of Carlos Sainz after his emergency operation: “I feel your support”

The Spanish pilot Carlos Sainz (29) was emergency surgery this Friday at the King Fahd Armed Forces Hospital in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) due to appendicitis. This setback, which was reported by the ‘Scuderia’, made it impossible for him to participate in the Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, which takes place this Saturday at 6:00 p.m.

Just a few hours ago, the athlete shared a photograph with his father from the medical center through his social networks (both Instagram and Twitter). “Thank you very much for your messages in these last 24 hours. I really feel your support. Sainz 2- Appendicitis 0“, wrote the pilot.

Likewise, without losing his sense of humor, Sainz has replicated with his father the snapshot of the legendary Dakar Rally rider when he had to undergo surgery for the same illness.

In a few minutes, social networks have echoed the post of Isa Hernáez’s ex. “They love you genius. Many kisses to the whole family“, wrote the tennis player Fernando Verdasco. Likewise, Carlos Sainz has received messages of encouragement from his professional colleagues such as Lando Norris y ‘Checo’ Pérez.

The driver is expected to join on March 24 at the Australian Grand Prix. In these difficult moments, Sainz takes refuge in his family and his girlfriend Rebecca Donaldson. The model and the athlete made their courtship official this summer.
