Next Three or Four Races Will Determine Ferrari’s “True Gap and Car Potential” Expects Mattia Binotto

Ferrari boss Mattia Binotto claims the Italian constructors are still lacking and will need three or four races to understand their potential.

Ferrari relished the top-ten finish with both their drivers in the season opener at the Bahrain International Circuit. But boss Mattia Binotto claims the Italian constructors will need the next three to four races for understanding the SF21.

The team started the season on a positive note compared to their last season. However, they are still far from the top-tier teams and Mattia wants his drivers to understand the car’s potential. But the study from the next few races will have enough data to improve the car for future races.

Mattia Binotto claims their new SF21 is better compared to last year's SF1000 but still lacking to other teams.

Mattia Binotto claims their new SF21 is better compared to last year’s SF1000 but still lacking to other teams.

Mattia reported his strategy, “But still I think that if we look at our race, we got feedback now from drivers, they start learning the car, start knowing what are the limitations of the car, and eventually, we may address or we may improve it.

“So I think the next three or four races will first indicate what is the true performance and potential of our car compared to the others.”

Ferrari’s plans for the future explained by Mattia Binotto

2020 is considered the worst season in the Italian team’s history and had many troubles with the power unit. The new engine returned positive feedback in the current season, Charles Leclerc finishing P6 whereas, his teammate Carlos Sainz Jr. was P8.

The Italian boss claims to focus on the 2022 season, thus the team is working on the development of the next season’s challenger. Binotto further added the SF21 is lacking in all sectors and requires further data from the upcoming races for improvements.

The Team principal is not sweating about these issues, as the car can win better positions. Further, it keeps the team calm and positive. For Binotto, a healthy team is more crucial than a demotivated team with a powerful car.


The Maranello-based team is ready to compete with other teams at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari on April 18. We can expect the Italians to continue their excellent performance in the second race of the 2021 season. There is also a chance to witness the uprising of Ferrari in the upcoming races.
