Or as Binotto put it: “We have been good at the begin of the season, developed the automotive additional and remained aggressive. So sure, at least up to now we’re assembly our preliminary targets.”
But as the kind curve will increase, so does the strain to succeed: Ferrari (particularly in Italy) is predicted to win the world title. “There’s all the time that strain,” Binotto says. “It cannot be modified both, as a result of it is a part of all the things Ferrari has achieved, all the things Ferrari stands for. People anticipate it. And we’ve got to take care of that strain.”
