There are nine appointments left and everything seems to be channeled for Max Verstappen to achieve his second F1 world title. Ferrari seems the only team capable of avoiding what seems obvious. But for this they must stop making mistakes… and that, at the same time, their rival begins to fail. Both conditions must be met. At least that is what Carlos Sainz thinks. Madrid is not resigned. He warns that they will fight until the end and if it can’t be, then they will have no choice but to exercise self-criticism and congratulate a rival who is being extremely consistent. In Constructors, the energetic team dominates with a 97-point advantage over those from Maranello. And in the most valued section, Verstappen is the undisputed leader with 258 points. He has won eight of the 13 races contested. And what is most disheartening for his opponents is that he came out surprisingly well in Hungary when he starts from 10th on the starting grid. The Red Bull star sees Leclerc very far in the rear-view mirror, who is settled in second place in the qualifying table, 80 points behind Max! His partner in the ‘Scuderia’ has it worse. Sainz is fifth, 102 points behind the ever-hungry Dutch driver. The ’55’ is 22 from Monegasque. A more realistic goal today, but Carlos exhibits an ambitious spirit and aspires to everything, as long as there are options, of course. A little help from the rival “At Ferrari we are clear about what we must do, which is to win those races that Max wants win. Because obviously getting those 25 points makes a big difference in the end. I think there’s still a lot that could happen at the top of the table. Match after match there’s a big battle going on between the two teams, which will continue. until the end of the year. It’s true that maybe at some point we need a little help from Red Bull. That they have reliability problems and dropouts, but even without that, statistically if it’s open, it’s open and you can’t give up.” the Spaniard in statements collected by ‘Motorsportweek’. Sainz fights with Checo Prez. / FERRARIlearn for the futureAt 27 years old, Sainz has already accumulated a lot of experience in the ‘Great Circus’ and if competing in the elite has taught him anything, it is that you should never give up. “I think this is the number one rule in the sport. Until it’s impossible, you have to keep believing and you have to keep trying to win as much as you can and trying to stay in the fight. As long as the numbers allow you… So, we will continue trying, we will continue to develop as a team, we will continue to improve because what we can learn this year can also be useful for the next few years”, he concludes his ambitious speech. Let’s see if Mattia Binotto’s team is capable of working properly like block. The F1-75 is a car designed to win and Ferrari has two great drivers. Everyone knows that. They fail in other aspects (strategy, ‘pit-stops’…), where a championship that they are still in time to win is slipping away. But for that you have to put everything together. We will see.
