Ferrari won at Silverstone with Sainz

Ferrari returned to victory in the last British GP. But at Silverstone, the management of the Redhead’s two drivers caused controversy.

Team principal Mattia Binotto spoke about Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz at the Austria weekend, “We give them the maximum opportunity to score points,” he explained in a press conference, “if in the future one of the two is further ahead in the standings and has the opportunity to win the championship we will give him priority.

Binotto then returned to the dinner with Leclerc during the week, “I always meet the drivers and there was an opportunity to have dinner in Monaco,” the team principal added. Rumors of a divided team at Silverstone are false, the team was happy with Sainz’s victory.”
