Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto stated that he was “more concerned” about their performance at Zandvoort than their slip-ups.
Carlos Sainz’s race in the Netherlands was affected by a slow pit stop on lap 15 of 72. The pit crew did not bring the left rear tire which made the pit stop slower. As a result, the Spaniard was out of the top 3.
Binotto admitted that such an error “should not happen” but revealed that he was more worried about the pace.
“This is one of the easiest things to solve. However, these kinds of things should not happen, but I am convinced that we can be stronger in the future,” he told Sky Sports.
“I am more concerned about the pace this weekend than about those mistakes.
“The fact is we weren’t fast enough today [on Sunday].
“If you look at the speed in qualifying, we would have hoped for a better result there. However, the speed and performance of the car were not good.
“We hoped for a better result in the race, but the performance was not good on the longer runs, especially not on the Medium and on the Hard tire.”
