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 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.
