F1.  It will be interesting at Ferrari

F1. It will be interesting at Ferrari

Ferrari, which was a very successful test run ahead of the 2022 season, in both Barcelona and Bahrain, has one of the strongest pairs in F1 competition. The Maranello stable is represented by Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz.

Decisive progression and a solid roster helped the Scuderia have a successful campaign in 2021, finishing third, ahead of McLaren.

Now the Italian team has attracted a lot of attention with its competitive F1-75 car at the Barcelona-Catalunya circuit and last week during the second round of winter preparations at the Bahrain International Circuit. Many observers share the opinion that they currently have one of the best cars. They were listed at the fore before the next tournament.

If Ferrari is really doing well, Sky Sport F1 expert Martin Brundle announces an interesting rivalry between Leclerc and Sainz.

“If Ferrari can win the races, it would be great to see Charles Leclerc and the young Carlito being more or less on the same level,” said Brandel.

– We saw them last year. They were quite battered together, they respected each other and knew who they were working for. However, if race victories or even championships are in jeopardy, there will be crowded competition between the drivers – he added.

Binotto: We are not winners

Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto tempers expectations with every statement he has made in the past few days: – I am unable to judge others. On the other hand, we’re good at expressing our opinions about ourselves, and I don’t think we’re winners. I expect both Red Bull and Mercedes to have very strong and fast cars, they are very strong teams. Even on the last day, RBR made improvements to their car, to prove and show how well they have been in development, which is crucial before the first race. Maybe Mercedes will improve, too. Of course, I hope we somehow try to challenge them. That would be great of us.

Ferrari was not using full force

There have been suggestions that Ferrari did not use the maximum power unit during testing in Bahrain. Try this opinion of journalist Leo Torini, closely associated with the formation of Maranello.

“As we can see, Ferrari had no worries about his form,” Turrini said. – Sainz and Leclerc had separate missions. Sainz drove with a fuller tank while Leclerc focused on working with the softer tires. As far as I can tell, they didn’t follow the F1-75 with little fuel nor did they want to show off the power of the engine. The bottom line is that there are no problems with the car. Both drivers showed the car’s equal performance easily, especially when fitted with tires made of a stiffer compound.

The season starts this week with the Bahrain Grand Prix.
