After the next Vettel-fiasco: all of a Sudden Ferrari plays the good Samaritan

Ferrari is slowly getting better. This is because the a week ago in Austria presented a new aerodynamic developments are slowly starting to have effect. And that engine power plays at the Hungaroring a smaller role than in Spielberg. That doesn't change the fact that Ferrari is stuck more in the midfield. Also in the Grand Prix of Hungary, it was enough for Sebastian Vettel only sixth place, he was overtaken even by the winner Lewis Hamilton. Only the distance to the tip is temporarily shrunk.

the destination disc in the home team boss Mattia Binotto is now. The has experienced in his 25 years of service in Maranello, been some stormy times, though in a less exposed Position: "This experience has me prepared for what I must endure now as a team leader. The pressure comes mainly from the outside, but we make it ourselves. We know our goals. What we see right now is for Ferrari, not good enough.“

in the absence of success on the race track, the team leadership tries on a different parquet to win sympathy. Binotto sold the most famous team in the world, just as the Samaritan of the sport. The man with the Harry Potter hairstyle is not tired to emphasize how important the role of Ferrari in the Sport is and how grateful the opponent must be that Maranello has at the end of the reduction of the cost cap from 175 to first, $ 145 million is added. You've done it for the sake of the sport and against their own interests. You can't say the same for some competitors. The counter-proposal from Ferrari, to solve the financial crisis, according to the model of the MotoGP with customer teams, fell through. Slightly out of tune, Binotto said: "He was rejected by all parties Involved."

A sign

If you can't be first on the road, you want to put at least the first to the new Concorde agreement signed and in order for a sign. The principle of the Treaty governs the distribution of the revenue to the Teams, the separation of powers and the involvement of the participants in the case of rule changes. "We at Ferrari are ready to sign. Even very soon. This is important for the future of the sport, because it provides clarity, even for the other Teams.“ The formula 1 Management rubs in the case of such statements of the hands. If Ferrari is in the boat, after pulling the other. Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff, however, is appalled at so little tactical skill: "negotiations should be conducted behind closed doors. There are still points that need to be clarified.“ As usual, Ferrari is the best conditions, and even a weakened veto power in Afghanistan. What describes Binotto: "We are glad that the formula has understood the importance of our role in this business. That was the key for us.“

The relations to the world Association are against it since this Winter because of the engine-affair tense. The Fia is not happy about the comparison in the engine armed, in the them because of the difficult evidence, the suspicion of possible trickery was driven. The Fia had publicly expressed doubts as to the legality of the engine, can't articulate, but because Ferrari insists on the agreed "standstill" agreement. Binotto is more to the point that Ferrari was not at fault. "There is no clear rule violation was. Therefore, we have not been disqualified.“ The blatant loss of power from last to this year, he declared in so many words with the many restrictions that have been imposed on engine manufacturers in November 2019. "These clarifications will not only meet us, but also others. When I look at the performance data in this season, then other manufacturers had to react.“ What he proposes under: Ferrari had more feathers than all the others.

Now Ferrari hits one of the many austerity measures, which has born the Corona-crisis. Until the end of the year, the engine, the turbocharger and the electric machine MGU-H for the combustion of a development stop. It is interesting to note that Ferrari could not prevent this measure, although you knew already in February that the engine is the largest site in the package. The competition is suspected as a hidden punishment by the world Association. Ferrari explained it so that you would have supported for the sake of the sport, all of the austerity measures. "There is no Team that had to make a lot of compromises as we do," says Binotto.
