Ferrari 'won't change' approach despite mistakes in 2022

Ferrari boss Mattia Binotto has said that the team does not feel the need to change their approach despite some of the errors that have struck their championship challenge.

The Scuderia started this season in great form and looked as though they were the team to beat in the title fight but as the campaign has worn on, Red Bull have grown stronger and stronger and the mistakes have crept in in red.

Indeed, they now find themselves with a huge task in front of them if they are to win either championship this year, with the Hungarian GP rather summing up their campaign as they saw what looked a potential double podium become a double-finish outside of the top three, with Max Verstappen rising from P10 to win the Grand Prix.

Charles Leclerc is now 80 points off of Max in the standings and Carlos Sainz has seen his title challenge never really get going, so it looks as though it could be another championship-less year for Ferrari as things stand.

Despite that, though, Binotto is defiant that Ferrari just need to keep doing what they’re doing and not change anything drastically:

“There’s nothing to change, I think it’s always a matter of confidence, learning, building, building experience, building skills.

“But if I look again at the balance of the first half of the season there is no reason why we should change. I think we simply need to understand [Hungary] and address that and try to be competitive, as we have been in 12 races so far. There is no reason why we will not be [competitive] at the next.”
