While Ferrari has been reported since the beginning of the season with a large number of engine failures, Mattia Binotto confirmed that the idea has been to focus more on performance than reliability.
If Ferrari and its drivers have been left behind, it is largely due to questionable engine reliability. Charles Leclerc had to retire because of this when he was leading in Spain and then Azerbaijan. Carlos Sainz Jr, meanwhile, saw a second place finish in Austria behind his teammate. ” I don’t think we pushed performance too much, because you can never push performance enough, but we definitely prioritized performance over reliability. “, admitted on this matter the director of Scuderia Ferrari Mattia Binotto in comments collected by the British newspaper. Car games. The Swiss leader admits his team has “pushed the limits of performance beyond what would normally be a reliable plan”. However, reason has been extended to justify this daring choice. “We knew it would be important to hold the competition before the four-season suspension, knowing that reliability issues can be resolved later “, he added.
