‘Ferrari? For 15 years they have been saying ‘next year’, Sainz is stronger than Leclerc’

Back to transparency Flavio Briatore and he does it by speaking into the microphone de A reformer, focusing on the 2023 Formula 1 world championship with Ferrari. The Reds started the tournament in a bad way, and the gap from Red Bull already looks unbridgeable.

Even during the last doctor in Miami, Leclerc certainly did not shine, unlike his replacement Verstappen and Perez who dominated the race from start to finish: “Fifteen years of ‘it will be next year’ does not exist, it does not stand – says Briatore referring Ferrarithey are very far behind, the car has many problems starting from use and Charles Leclerc, as we saw in Miami, is not competitive, unlike his colleague Carlos Sainz. He defended himself very well“.

Come on Vasseur: “He is currently one man, who is trying to rebuild his technical team, without however losing the engineers he already has.“. A Formula 1 race that would therefore seem to have already been decided: “Max Verstappen has power and style, the world championship is already his. Red Bull are doing a different championship, they are strong because they work better together, and they have the only talent that is Adrian Newey.”.

On his student Fernando AlonsoBriatore says: “the real surprise of this world championship“, adding that”Aston Martin, a team that until last year had no competition. Then they attacked the number two Red Bull and Mercedes by investing heavily in technology and in the factory for more than twenty million. For these reasons, I pushed Fernando to join Aston Martin, which is now second to Ferrari after four races. Aston did well in the last round in Miami although it is not a circuit that suits the car well, but if nothing unexpected happens, the world championship is already written. Although other circuits like Monte Carlo can always be a big surprise“.

Unlike many supporters, Flavio Briatore says he agrees with the new formula “show” of System 1 required by sunday: “In the morning you get out of bed if you have a goal, and if before Friday the riders went out on the track to give instructions to the team, now they go out to get points. Then if you add knock-on features, everything is more interesting for viewers and TV. Everyone is interested in seeing one more day of F1 that was once an insider’s affair. The idea of ​​Domenicali, who is a friend I have known for thirty years, is very good. We are here to run, not to tour, and to run you need goals“.

Close to Monza, which could lose Formula 1 from 2026: “The Minister of Infrastructure Matteo Salvini gives not one hand, but two, to invest in the modernization of the circuit that has been difficult to work. Not much has been invested in recent years and the gap for new F1 races is felt. Monza is very attractive to sponsors, it is close to Milan“.
