John Elkann, president of Ferrari, renews his confidence in Mattia Binotto

Highly criticized for the repeated strategic errors that spoiled his team’s good start to the season, the boss of Scuderia Ferrari since 2019 saw the rumors surrounding his replacement become more and more pressing in recent days. But, on the eve of the Italian Grand Prix, Elkann renewed his confidence in him during an interview at the Gazzetta dello Sport.

We have great confidence in Mattia Binotto and appreciate everything he and our engineers have donesays the 46-year-old businessman. Trusting Binotto and his team was the right decision and it paid off. Thanks to them, we are competitive and we are winning again. I’m sure that before 2026, Ferrari will win the constructors’ and drivers’ titles again, with Charles Leclerc on pole position. »

The leader nevertheless wanted to make it known that he was not satisfied with the turn taken by Ferrari’s season: ” There is no doubt that the work at Maranello, both in the garage and behind the wheel, needs to be improved. I’m not satisfied because I think we can always do better. You have to keep making progress, and that goes for the mechanics, the engineers, the drivers and, of course, the whole management team, including the team principal. »
