Mattia Binotto be careful on Scuderia Ferrarithe advantage over the McLaren F1 Team in the constructors’ championship despite the fact that the team took thirty-one and a half points ahead of its rivals following the São Paulo Grand Prix.
Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz Jr. was fifth and sixth in the Autodrome José Carlos Pace to score eighteen points in the constructors’ championship, while Sainz’s third place in sprint qualifying on Saturday gave the team an extra point. McLaren, on the other hand, only scored one point in Brazil thanks to Lando norris‘tenth place on Sunday.
Binotto, the team manager at Ferrari, says it was nice for Ferrari to have had such a positive weekend in Brazil, but they cannot feel that third place is a certainty despite the big gap on McLaren, especially with the way some races went for each team. this season.
“A good result at the championship level, given that we have doubled our lead over our closest rivals in the Manufacturers standings. Binotto said. “That said, a 31.5 point lead doesn’t mean it’s done and dusted off, far from it.
“We know the situation can change in an instant and that our opponents are very strong.”
Binotto was delighted with the way the team worked together throughout the weekend in São Paulo, both on the track and back at their Maranello factory, and he hopes to see similar success in the final three races of the season, from this weekend to Qatar.
“During what turned out to be a busy weekend, the team, both on the track and back in Maranello, worked very hard and with great precision, approaching every situation with the right approach.” Binotto said. “Today every aspect of the race was well managed – strategy, tire management and pit stops – and the drivers delivered a clean and efficient performance.
“There are only three races left to go and we need to continue down this path to achieve what has become our end-of-season goal. “
