Ferrari isn’t exactly looking forward to the summer break. With Ferrari driver duo Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz, the Maranello-based racing team did not make the podium in Hungary. Furthermore, Ferrari created a bunch of tactical mistakes, causing Max Verstappen to gain an advantage in the world championship. However, according to Emerson Fittipaldi, the team is coming back stronger.
Ferrari stumbled once more in Hungary, according to the former Formula One driver. Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc were to start from second and third respectively, while Verstappen was supposed to start tenth. Despite this, Verstappen passed both the Ferraris.
Ferrari can fight back: Emerson Fittipaldi
“Strategically they made mistakes. I don’t know where they miss the point but I’m sure they will revamp this. Ferrari has the capacity, the people, the experience, to recover. The only thing I can confirm again is that the car is very fast, the team is very good,” said Fittipaldi.
Fittipaldi claims he understands better than anyone else that a motorsport team can have issues, but Ferrari has also demonstrated its capabilities. He anticipates that the team will recoup in the second half of the season.
“They have great potential for recovery, learning from the mistakes they made. From their mistakes they will learn better, that’s for sure,” concluded Fittipaldi. After the Hungarian Grand Prix, the gap in the constructors’ championship between Ferrari and Red Bull Racing is 97 points.
