Ferrari boss confirms team tries to do its best and ignores failures

Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto has revealed that the Scuderia is working full throttle to regain its competitiveness and does not foresee any failures.

Asked about his team’s expectations for the 2022 season, the Italian said:

“I think dealing with pressure is about staying focused on what we’re doing. I think we’re so busy doing what we do every day developing the car, designing it, improving it so that in the end we don’t care about the pressure. That’s how I run it myself, so I really focus on my work with the whole team. Do I feel responsible? Of course I can feel it.”

Ferrari have been an integral part of F1 since the sport’s inception and have been one of the most successful teams in the past. The Italian side, however, have been without a league for over a decade now. Kimi Raikkonen was their last Drivers’ World Champion in 2007, while their last Constructors’ Championship was in 2008.

After a disastrous 2020 campaign, the Scuderia managed to claw back some of their lost ground last season with a P3 finish in the standings. The Maranello-based team now hope to carry on from there into the new era of F1.

Meanwhile, Binotto feels it is imperative to get the prancing horse back into a gallop at the front of the field. He added saying:

“I think it’s important for Ferrari to get competitive again. For a long time we’ve been saying that 2022 is our best opportunity to get competitive again, so I really think we’ve put in a lot of effort with the team. to design and develop the new car so honestly, the way I saw the team working, I’m proud of the way they did it, very united and putting a lot of effort into it. I’m not considering failure at the moment because I don’t think it’s like that, we’re just focused on trying to do our best, raise the level and have a good start to the season.

Ferrari has “some veiled doubts” about its F1 2022

Ferrari has “some veiled doubts” about the aerodynamics of its new car for the 2022 F1 season, according to Italian journalist Leo Turrini.

Turrini explained the Italian team’s situation in his day-to-day blog, stating that the Scuderia is extremely happy with the new power unit and expects to follow the leaders. He wrote:

“As far as I know, Ferrari is 100% sure that it has been able to catch up with the leaders in terms of engine power, even despite the transition to biofuel.”

Turrini then addressed the team’s aerodynamic efforts, writing:

“But veiled doubts remain on certain innovative solutions in the field of aerodynamics. Be careful of expectations. You have to understand that if in the first race of the season Ferrari is half a second behind Red Bull and Mercedes, the dream of a title race is over.

At the start of the new season, the team will have the services of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz as first team drivers. Haas man Mick Schumacher and former Alfa Romeo driver Antonio Giovinazzi have been named reserve drivers for the Scuderia this season.
