At the event: Ferrari CEO Benedetto Vigna said he was unhappy with his performance after finishing second in the constructors’ championship.
Ferrari CEO Vigna “not satisfied with second place”
Ferrari CEO Benedetto Vigna said he was unhappy with the team’s results after finishing the season in the Constructors’ Championship, with Charles Leclerc second in the drivers’ standings. “I said after the last quarter, I’m not satisfied with second place because second place is the first of the losers,” Vigna told CNBC on Wednesday.
“We have made some progress. I am happy with the progress we have made. I’m not happy with the secondary. I think the team has what it takes to improve over time.
Reports from the Italian media on Friday suggested that Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto is preparing to step down from his role in the coming days.
Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera reported that Binotto was about to announce his resignation as of yesterday. However, no such announcement was made.
Martins was fastest on the last day of F2 testing
Victor Martins set the overall fastest time of the test at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi after the third and final day of racing of the Formula 2 post-season test.
The ART driver set a 1’35.908 to be the fastest driver in the three-day test, with Day Two pacesetters Jack Doohan, Theo Poucher and Roy Nissani all within a tenth of a second of their Martins. Kush Maini was fastest in the evening session, but Martins’ best was about a second.
Ahead of the 2023 championship, a three-day pre-season test will be held in Bahrain from February 14.
The Porsche Supercup will support the F1 schedule until 2030
