Mattia Binotto has reflected on Scuderia Ferrari’s progress throughout the 2021 Formula 1 season.

The 2021 campaign was the start of Ferrari’s recovery after a disappointing 2020 season. It has worked well for the Maranello-based outfit as they are 38.5 points ahead of McLaren in the battle for the 3rd place in the Constructors’ Championship with 1 race left.

The team principal Binotto admitted that P3 was their maximum, but was still delighted with the improvement.

“It’s great to finish third, because I think it’s really the best we could have done this year. We know that’s not the real objective for Ferrari. We know that the gap to the best competitor is still very big,” Binotto said.

“But I think we can somehow be satisfied for the progress we made this season, and we are really looking ahead at the next one. Finishing third somehow gives us some serenity for the winter, [where we’ll be] trying to work well on what’s for next year.”
