Public opinion arrives in September, with eight races still to go in the 2022 Formula 1 World Cup season, with the feeling that Max Verstappen is close to winning the second world championship. A bit disappointing in a championship design in which Ferrari presented a car as strong as Red Bull’s at many times, but also suffered all sorts of misfortunes. bugs? According to chef Mattia Binotto, no.

The idea that Ferrari has made more mistakes than should be acceptable throughout 2022 is general, but Binotto still wants to fight it and say that some decisions seen as mistakes are not.

How to decide to call Charles Leclerc to the pits with two laps to go Belgian GP last weekend, something that put the Monegasque behind Fernando Alonso, meant that he had to fight for position and they could not achieve what was the goal: to take the best lap of the race. He also received a penalty for going over the speed limit in the pit lane, something that, for the team, was fault of a supervisor of Max Verstappen lost on the way.

“There was an opportunity to try the fastest lap and margin to stop and get back in front of Alonso. I think it was the right decision, but we knew he was very close to Fernando. It ended up being too tight,” he stated.

“Of course, we always need to improve and that there are lessons to be learned, something that we are evaluating and reflecting on, but if I look back on the season so far, I think there are a lot of external perceptions compared to what is truth and reality.”

“Sometimes we are not making mistakes when people see it as a mistake. More than that: if I look at the race, I believe the decision to stop Charles was the right one. You have to be brave in Formula 1.”

Also on Saturday at Spa, Ferrari put the wrong set of tires on Leclerc’s car and it was the driver who had to notice.
