Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto is very happy with the team’s performance during yesterday’s training sessions and determined to beat Max Verstappen in Bahrain.

The duo of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz showed strong pace in yesterday’s practice sessions, finishing in the top three in both FP1 and FP2.

Looking ahead to Friday’s performances, Mattia Binotto is very confident that his drivers can beat Max Verstappen in qualifying and also during the Grand Prix.

In post-workout interviews, Mattia said: “The tests showed that we and Verstappen would be quick with Red Bull and the first two free practice sessions proved that. We have two drivers who are mentally ready to do well for Ferrari and try to get the best possible result. You are in good shape.”

Max has come into the 2022 season well-prepared and looks like he’s been racing the RB18 for years, but the RED team have done their homework even in the off-season and are looking to fight back.

You should always try to achieve the best, including winning. The competition is very strong, you can believe that, but we can’t fool ourselves. My feeling? Still, some relief.

The Italian team from Maranello have come a long way after struggling in midfield for a few seasons. In 2022, however, everything falls into place for the team. Mattia Binotto believes they have developed the car well for the 2022 season, saying: “We’ve made a big step forward with the power unit, but we’ll have to wait and see qualifying.”

He further added: “Today we got clues but no results. It’s a good sign to see so many Ferrari engines there [at the top]. But I’m sure Mercedes also has horsepower to play with.”

The Italian team are optimistic about their chances in Bahrain but Mattia hasn’t ruled out the ever-looming threat from the Mercedes F1 team. The Brackley-based team didn’t have their best games on Friday and the pundits are not counting them in the race for victory in Bahrain. However, Mattia is not speaking of the Mercedes team and feels the team’s horsepower could come in handy at the Grand Prix.
