Seve Ballesteros, José María Olazábal, Sergio García. Spain has produced some world-class golfers over the years and it seems as though their fellow countryman Carlos Sainz has got the golf bug as well, with the Ferrari F1 star linking up with Ian Poulter for a lesson.

Sainz is having a fine season in his first year with Ferrari and will be eager to help the Scuderia beat old foes, and his old team, McLaren to third place in the Constructors' championship with just a handful of points separating the pair ahead of the final five races.

The pressure is on, then, and away from the track it's clear Sainz likes to take his mind off of racing matters with a round of golf, with it clear from the video he shot with European golf icon Poulter that he's got a fair bit of talent when in charge of a set of irons as he has when at the wheel of an F1 car.
