And actually some people (not experts) are saying that Ferrari wanted to sign any driver before the season started because they knew their car was shitty and with a shitty car they can't attract top talent.

I think there's more to it than 'making a mistake going in the wrong direction' from Binotto, it's been dragging on since 2008,goes further than errors and didn't Seb say he'll drive for no money next season such is his love for racing.

Christian Horner has said all teams should be worried at Racing Point's progress and indeed just read from RP that they say their car can be stronger notwithstanding the brake duct saga. Perez's stellar drive from 17th on the grid to fight for 4th is no fluke and Stroll's mugging of Ricciardo says they have the gloves off.

Yeah he said money is not an issue but Ferrari politics are Ferrari politics. They blamed Arrivabene (Although I think he was great at supporting Vettel), then they put an eager hot shot which pressured a driver who has history of not performing well with intra-team competition and then blamed him for losing the championship. One thing that Horner and Marko did well with Vettel (and they're doing it with Max) is treat him like family and surrounding him with support. Ferrari on the other hand expect you to drive a donkey to the finish line whole treating their drivers like disposable parts.

My friends , Binotto should be fired ASAP !
No matter who would replace him , it would be better anyway ...
I mean ,from what we saw in only 2 races it can't be worse !

More stupid mistakes will follow for sure...

I'm wondering why they chose someone like that, with Montezemolo and Todd they had real leaders who everyone looked up to.

Yes Ferrari needs a TP that will bring the team together with Sainz onboard and work towards 2022 car. Leclerc's crash is his mistake but it's part of a bigger problem. He was eager to make positions because of the terrible qualifying and in some way you can argue that he felt immune to overtaking his teammate in a dangerous way. Kimi would've never made that move on Vettel and Vettel would've never done that move on Leclerc. And Leclerc and the team know that Vettel will not yield any positions this season so he needs to be aggressive to pass him.
Management of the drivers and car development is terrible and they are both controlled by Binotto.

My friend if they gave me a chance without taking responsibility for the technical side I would sort both of them out with some good old fashioned respect each other rules.

I have found Binotto's replacement....those of a certain age will immediately recognize this image....his infamous quotable "what, me worry?"
