Previewing the forthcoming race – where a turnaround is demanded from Tifosi and increasingly hostile Italian Media – this is what Scuderia Ferrari Team Principal Mattia Binotto had to say ahead of the next round of the 2020 Formula One season, the Hungarian Grand Prix:
“Hungary brings the curtain down on the first triple-header in this very compressed season. The Hungaroring is a very different track to Spielberg in Austria, which hosted the first two races. It will be interesting therefore to see how the cars behave on a track that requires maximum aerodynamic downforce. Given that overtaking in Hungary, unlike Austria, is usually a rare occurrence, it means that tyre management over a single lap and being well prepared for qualifying will be of vital importance.
We know that the performance level of our car has not matched our expectations, nor that of our fans, but we are working flat out on every area to improve as quickly as possible. Our aim this weekend is simple and straightforward: to score as many points as possible. To do that, we must work perfectly in every area, from the drivers, to car preparation to how we operate on track, to reliability.” – the Ferrari boss explained.
