The CEO of Ferrari sends a message of optimism on the eve of the F1 Canadian GP: “We will continue to fight with passion, ambition and the humility that comes from the constant desire to learn”
Woe to talk about a crisis. Ferrari arrives at the Canadian GP after three negative races: the power unit left Charles Leclerc on foot while he was in command in Spain and Azerbaijan, while in Monte Carlo the team’s strategy in the pit stops did not work, depriving the Monegasque of another victory. The red lost the lead of the standings both in the Drivers ‘and Constructors’ World Championships, with the reliability that from now on could be a handicap in the title race. However, the managing director Benedetto Vigna considers more important the fact that the Maranello team in 2022 returned to competition in F1 after some difficult seasons.
He talked about it during the speech at Capital Markets Day, which was the occasion of the first industrial plan linked to its management. “Our Formula 1 team – said Vigna – is back at the top of the grid and on the top step of the podium, thanks to our talented drivers and the F1-75, which has already shown its winning skills. It is truly a great satisfaction for the whole team and for me to see that hard work is starting to bear fruit “. In addition, he added: “We will continue to fight in every race, always with passion, ambition and the humility that comes from the constant desire to learn”.
A message of trust and tension, in view of Sunday’s race in Montreal, the ninth round of the calendar, where the team led by Mattia Binotto will have to try to stop the negative streak. After the double by Leclerc and Carlos Sainz in Bahrain, followed by Leclerc’s second triumph in Australia, there have been no more successes for the Cavallino since 10 April. While Red Bull has stuck five wins in a row with Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez, who now precede Leclerc by 34 points and 13 points respectively. However, Vigna’s proximity to the team is important, as is the one shown by President John Elkann.

The work begins to bear fruit. This is the concept that the CEO he wanted to emphasize more clearly. In the sense that the plan to bring Ferrari back to the top in F1 has a medium-long term perspective and having achieved two successes in this first part of the season is considered an encouraging sign. After all, Binotto had remembered, just before the Azerbaijani GP, that the World Championship was not the goal of this year and must not become an obsession. A difficult concept to accept for the millions of fans who have seen Leclerc bring Ferrari back in front of everyone and already dreamed of the title as in the days of Michael Schumacher.
