Mattia Binotto, the team principal of Scuderia Ferrari, is ignoring the criticism after missing the first part of the championship.
After three successful first Grands Prix, with two victories in Bahrain and Australia, Ferrari has accumulated frustrations and disappointments, chain reliability problems and strategic errors – not to mention a few mistakes made by two of its drivers.
All this allowed Max Verstappen to enter the summer break with a massive 80 point lead in the championship, with just nine Grands Prix remaining.
However, and despite the criticism, Mattia Binotto is adamant: the head of the Ferrari team says there is no need to change anything in Maranello.
“It’s not a matter of bad luck and there’s nothing to change eitherhe says. It is always a matter of continuous learning and strengthening: strengthening experience, strengthening skills. »

“There are definitely some things, especially in the race, that we need to look at and understand. But if I look at the balance of the first half of the season, there is no reason for us to change. »
“I think we have to deal with what went wrong in the race. We have to understand it, respond to it and get back to doing as well as we did in the first race of the championship.” he finishes.
Among the manufacturers, the gap is only significant: 97 points separate Red Bull from Ferrari.
