In the round-up: Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto says the team’s somewhat recovered form points to a more consistent and better-understood car for the 2021 season.

What they say

Binotto, who did not attend the Turkish Grand Prix where Ferrari had their strongest result of the season so far, said that the Scuderia’s improvements showed their developments for 2021 are on the right path:

It’s obviously very important for Ferrari doing well at the moment. We knew that we have improved the car and if you look at the last races we improved our position on the race. I think the car has become more consistent and the car has become a bit faster.

So it’s great at least to have those results because I think it’s great for next year, it’s great looking ahead as well the next races. I think that as well in terms of constructors positions it’s not the end of the championship. So it’s encouraging.

A lot of people are working hard back at home, trying to understand the weaknesses of the car and addressing them. And especially they are preparing for the next season and I think those results are encouraging ourselves.
