Mercedes is unrivaled but also Red Bull, Racing Point and McLaren have proven to be more performing and more solid than the red single-seaters. After the second race at the Red Bull Ring, Binotto spoke of possible basic and design problems: “You can only progress if one at the base understands where the problem lies. It may not necessarily be a single part of the car, it could be a problem of methodology, of the underlying project, of the concept. It is right in this moment, in this situation, to be open, observe everything, look at everything, analyze and then be sure to take the right direction ”.
“At this stage of the season when we are not competitive, the regret is not to score points, too bad we didn’t complete the race with both cars, trying to maximize the potential of this weekend. Another regret is not having run e not having seen the potential of the machine in dry conditions, not having been able to compare the car with that of last week in the dry. And then the big regret is seeing two more Ferraris still after just one lap ”.
The same team principal is below very strong pressure: if in Maranello his position is steadfast, on the social networks the Ferrari fans are furious about the humiliation suffered and point the finger right at the manager, who seems groping in the dark.
Binotto also had to work on Sunday to defuse the tension between the two drivers after the clash: “I talked to both, I must say that there is no problem between them. Charles acknowledges the mistake, Sebastian is clearly sorry, but we are sorry for all that has happened after so many efforts to finish the race in this way “.
