Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto stated that they should aim for a 1-2 finish at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Ferrari had a disappointing outcome of the French GP. Charles Leclerc crashed out while leading and Carlos Sainz had a shot at the podium, but finished the race 5th. Nevertheless, Binotto is optimistic and believes that Ferrari are capable of making a 1-2 finish in Hungary.

“It has been a good weekend in terms of pace, and the car has proved to be very competitive. I think Carlos’ race as well showed it,” he said.

“Charles got the pole. He was leading the race. I think we had an edge on the Red Bull in terms of tire degradation by lap 15, and then Max [Verstappen] had to stop.

“We could have extended the stint and we were extending the stint, looking at the time where Max stopped when he was starting suffering from tire degradation.

“Charles was gaining two or three tenths per lap on him, proving once again that our car is great and gentle with tire management.

“I think we come out from here, Le Castellet, with full confidence in our package, in our drivers’ capacity, and our speed.

“Lucky enough now, in a week’s time, we’ve got Hungary. It’s important for us to turn the page, to look forward.

“Hungary will be again very hot there and it will be again about tire management, tire degradation, and tire overheating, very similar to Le Castellet.

“So I will say there is plenty of reason why we need to smile and be positive, because our objective going in to Hungary should be not for a winning, but a 1-2.”
