Mattia Binotto believes his team’s lineup of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz is the best in F1 this season.

After a dismal 2020 season with Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel netted them only sixth in the title, owing to a terrible car, the team has bounced back this season, level on points with McLaren for third. Binotto believes his teams’ lineup is a big reason for this, believing it is the best in F1.

“I think we’ve got the best line-up of the entire pitlane,” he said. “We know Charles is a fantastic driver, very talented, but he still continues improving and I’m pretty happy with that, he’s got great opportunities for a win, the first was in Monaco but for reasons we know it didn’t happen.”

“I think that Carlos is integrating very well. He’s improving race by race, he’s somehow a great, let me say, benchmark for Charles as well, pushing him as well when conditions are more difficult.”

“I think that as you said 80 points each, it shows how important it is somehow to have two good drivers scoring points for the constructor, I’m very happy with that.”
