Mattia Binotto explains that the problems during training at Spa-Francorchamps have to do with the tyre temperature. Because Ferrari cannot manage the Pirelli tyres properly, they cannot make speed in Belgium.
Binotto after Qualification – Many Formula 1 pundits blame the slow Ferrari on the Italians’ engine. Binotto tempers these rumours: “This is not the car’s true potential, especially in relation to the competition”.
“We are in a difficult situation and we are not happy. Nobody is, us and the fans. We have to understand it and look ahead. The drivers didn’t have confidence”, opens Ferrari-team boss Mattia Binotto disappointed at Sky Sport Italia.
“Our situation on Friday endangered qualifying. We need patience. We are now focusing on 2021 and 2022 and building for the future. We are still trying to have a good season, especially in Italy”, continued Binotto. Ferrari will have three home races in Italy this season, with the team’s 1000th Grand Prix at the Mugello circuit in a two weeks time as the big highlight of the season.
“The car is the same as the last races and the problem is limited to this weekend. We have chosen to drive with more downforce, also thinking about a possible wet race for tomorrow. The disappointment is great, but we need to find out what happened. Tomorrow is the race. We don’t give up”, the Italian concludes.
