Formula 1: Mattia Binotto defends Ferrari’s team members: Mattia Binotto has protected his Ferrari colleagues despite the calls of firing staff in the midst of strategic errors in their title battle with Max Verstappen. Binotto said the group has made the right calls this season and also the wrong ones as many pundits and former drivers have slammed the Italian teams’ decisions.

Binotto thinks his entire team is ‘great’ and even admitted that he has full ‘trust’ in the squad. “I’m looking at the overall balance of the season, and we made the right strategy in France, we got it right in Austria, as in many times we made it right,” Binotto said.

“Sometimes you make a mistake, sometimes the others are doing mistakes; maybe we are not on the line so much. It’s not only Inaki [Rueda, Ferrari chief strategist], the entire team is great. I am fully supporting them, because I trust them,” Binotto added.

Meanwhile, Ferrari have cost Charles Leclerc a handful number of points in his battle with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen for the F1 2022 title as the team have made some blunders with their strategy.

Firstly, Leclerc lost the lead of his home race at Monaco GP, as the team decided to pit him before his teammate Carlos Sainz after confusing radio messages. The team also made blunders with Charles Leclerc in the British GP as they took another wrong strategic decision and saw him drop out of the podium on a day when Verstappen himself endured problems.
