Zapping Autonews Autonews Event: focus on the 13th crossing of Paris
Whether on or off the circuits, Mattia Binotto clearly does not seem spared from the problems. The latest example: a video on Youtube where we can clearly see the Ferrari main team walking by the side of a road, probably on the way home from the Russian Grand Prix last Sunday. This time it's not a broken-down Ferrari but his personal vehicle: an Alfa Romeo Stelvio. We obviously do not know the reasons for this incident, but one thing is certain, Binotto is accumulating technical problems in 2020! This rather funny and revealing scene of a difficult season for the reds made us smile.
A ray of hope for Ferrari?
While qualifying saw Charles Leclerc start from 11th place and Sebastian Vettel hit the wall hard, the race went much better for the Reds. The Monegasque driver indeed finished in 6th place, a few seconds behind Daniel Ricciardo. Is this the beginning of a ray of hope for the Scuderia, which had made improvements to the SF1000 in Sochi? Not the least of the world according to Mattia Binotto: “No, I don't think it's thanks to the improvements. This is not the reason. I think we have a better balance here given the characteristics of the circuit. So let's hope again that we will have regained some competitiveness, which will at least give the two riders the opportunity to compete for a better position in the future. "
