“We are still working on the aerodynamics, but above all on the power unit. We are looking for all the solutions to increase the power of the engine and still guarantee sufficient reliability.” 

“We are working hard on the 2022 engine. In particular, on the hybrid part, on the materials used and on many other aspects,” he said.

Italian plans

Binotto also gave his thoughts on the Italian GP weekend, and said he was looking forward to Ferrari’s home race.

“I said it at the start, this weekend may be interesting as well because it is a different format to the normal one,” Binotto said.

“So having the quail on Friday, having only one hour for the drivers to prepare for it and going straight into the attack is something which is interesting because it jeopardizes the overall balance and performance of the teams.

“In favour, generally speaking, I am pretty sure that we can address it in terms of details. I think there are things that can be improved. They are open-minded to discuss with F1, the FIA, and other teams and we can do it only after the three races and when the full experiment can be concluded,” he said.
