Mattia Binotto Takes Responsibility for Monaco Slip Up as Ferrari Sets Its Sights on Azerbaijan
"Everything that happens in the team is my responsibility," Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto said in regards to Charles Leclerc's mismanagement in last weekend's Monaco GP. "If someone finishes fourth while he was in the lead, something is wrong."
This Monaco GP was supposed to be a coming-out party for Monaco native Charles Leclerc. Instead, Leclerc (who started in pole position) was left off of the podium due to a poor race strategy implemented by Ferrari.
"The winning strategy would have been to stop Charles one lap after Perez, instead of two. Or to stay out with the rain tires and switch to slicks," the team boss explains.
According to Binotto, Ferrari had everything it needed to get Leclerc his first Monaco podium–but, as we all know, F1 is more strategy than anything else. Leave one set of tires on too long or take them off too quickly, and that can be the difference between first and fourth.
Ferrari and Leclerc now have their sights set on Azerbaijan, which is set to kick off this Sunday, June 12th, at 7:00 AM EST. If you think Leclerc and Ferrari can rebound, be sure to check out any of these New Jersey Online Casinos to place your bet.
