Mattia Binotto has a bitter situation within his team, after several weekends where the pace of the race is neither as expected nor expected, the team manager has to defend his team’s creative work and remain optimistic in the face of a fairly unfavorable scenario. Have to be, considering even more the state of form in which Scuderia faces the Italian GP in front of his fans.
without rhythm you go nowhere
Thus, like his riders in recent races, Mattia has clearly indicated after a race where he started 2 and 3, and where he eventually finished 3 and 8, with enough luck to take a podium. Saving: “I think once again we didn’t have race pace, Carlos was still damaged at the start in that contact with Hamilton, we’ll have to investigate that; You Then it was a tough race for our drivers because they didn’t have the speed, they weren’t able to take advantage of the performance of the car, and thus fighting and fighting is more difficult.”, is the honest Swiss engineer, analyzing the poor performance of his single-seater in the Zandvoort, maintaining the tendency to go more and less.
Mattia then preferred to focus on Carlos’ misfortunes and the FIA’s decision to sanction him, in his opinion somewhat unfair: “Plus it’s been a disaster with CarlosLast two calls with the mechanics and we’ll have to review why, here’s the 5 second unprotected release, We believe they have been stricter than the FIA”, the team leader attacks the race direction room.
Under this thesis, Binotto wanted to debate the reasons why Sainz maneuvered his way, causing little contact with Alonso, who had to brake to avoid contact: “We’ve put him in, we’ve left the place with McLaren and with Alpine, he’s had to stop for McLaren mechanics, enter an anti stall, and we don’t think that’s a penalty for an unsafe release: First he was waiting for the safe, and then avoiding the McLaren mechanics, I think they were tough because those 5 seconds cost him a lot of positionsoverall unlucky i would say“, argues Binotto, ignoring the end results of Carlos’ reinstatement, and that the sanctions are established according to a code, and not by positions that can be lost.
bad timing, and it’s monza
Next, Mattia Binotto went on to analyze his team’s tendency in general in these final tests, where not only have they not been measured, but where they are sinking rapidly across the table: “i believe We didn’t do the best we could in these racesWe’ve lost something since Hungary, and we definitely have to analyze that and come back for the last part of the season, because there’s potential, which we’ve already seen, and there’s no reason why we can’t find it again”, regrets the Swiss.
Thus, Binotto has gone on to the issue of Sainz’s engine change required, which is expected for next weekend, because of how well-suited Monza is in theory to outrun the Autodrome: “It’s something we’ll have to analyze, probably won’t be sure, there are many problems with power units as well, with our competitors, today we’ve seen how many cars are stalled, I hope there are many more Those who have to change the engine“, comments Binotto, who does not wish to give any clues about this strategic move by Sainz and his team:We still have to decide about Carlos,
In order to conclude and not to give a pessimistic image, Binotto refers to their next challenge as a gift, as they race home next week in what they hope will be a new opportunity and a new one for Tifosi. The party will be: “I don’t think it will be difficult, it is great to be back there after COVID and we would be happy to have a lot of fans, because Tifosi always supports us and makes us happy,Although this is not the best time for us, we have a lot of potential, two good drivers”, concluded the man in charge of Ferrari.
