Mattia Binotto is delighted with Charles Leclerc’s victory in Austria, second win for Ferrari in two weeks.

After Carlos Sainz’s triumph at Silverstone seven days ago, Leclerc brought Ferrari to the top step of the podium this Sunday at the Red Bull Ring. The Monegasque had to fight through car issues in the closing stages of the race, but went on to get his first win since the Australian GP.

Ferrari had a chance for a 1-2 finish, but Carlos Sainz had to retire due to an engine failure. Nevertheless, Binotto was optimistic after the race.

“I’m certainly very happy because now it’s two wins in a row, in Silverstone and here in¬†Austria,” the Ferrari team principal told Sky Sports.

“It was important for us to recover. It was important for us to come back after a few races where we’re not winning, but had the potential to win.

“It was a bit disappointing to have the failure on Carlos’ car because it could have been even better Sunday.”

Binotto also revealed that he did not know what was wrong with Leclerc’s car as he had not watched the race from that moment.

“Honestly, I don’t know. I heard about it, we looked at the data, but we need to wait for the car to come back and see if it was a mechanical problem or not. I stopped watching the race at that point.”
