It was finally during the very last race of the 2022 F1 world championship that the Ferrari team saved its second place, when Mercedes threatened to dislodge it. Thanks to a strategically brilliant final race, the Scuderia also managed to clinch 2nd and 5th places in the drivers’ standings, for Leclerc and Sainz. Insufficient, however, for the Management. Hence the explosion of the “fuse” Mattia Binotto, who will no longer be in place next season…
F1: The waltz of directors at Ferrari
At Ferrari, the waltz of team managers continues. After Jean Todt, it is difficult to regain first place in the constructors’ (and drivers’) classification. Successively, Domenicali, Arrivabene and therefore, Binotto, have also demonstrated this. However, Ferrari’s leap forward between 2021 and 2022n was considerable. From third thief to only thorn in the side of Red Bull, the Italian team lacked teeth in the development of its single-seater as well as in terms of strategy.
Despite a last race, in Abu Dhabi, which was rather encouraging for the future, Binotto did not survive the shock. Despite everything, the Scuderia ranks second in the constructors’ championship, ahead of Mercedes. A small success all the same… Behind the three untouchables, Alpine F1 will also have achieved a good performance even if, this season – unlike the previous one, no podium will come to reward the formation based in Enstone. But thanks to the regularity of the pilots and the often inspired strategies, the French team will finally come to the end of Mclaren.
Note also, just behind, sixth place for Alfa Romeo Racing. And if Valtteri Bottas has a lot to do with it, Frédéric Vasseur will also have displayed his talent. What to propel him to Ferrari? To be continued… Place in the final classification of the 2022 F1 Constructors’ Championship.
