Formula 1 celebrates the 2022 Italian Grand Prix this weekend in Monza, and some Ferrari fans have taken advantage of the presence of the highest category of motorsport to start a campaign calling for Mattia Binotto ‘s departure from the team.
Around the circuit, stickers have appeared in different places with the image of the director of the Maranello team, showing the name of the campaign “Binotout” and a QR code that, when scanned, takes you directly to the website [ binotout. com ] where it is explained in detail why, according to those who are carrying out the movement, the head of Ferrari should leave the helm.
They point out where the team has gone wrong in its strategy with Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz throughout the season and, as a consequence, they have missed out on victories that were virtually guaranteed.
It should also be noted that on the website, the organizers make a prediction of how many points the Monegasque would have at this point in the championship if he had not been harmed in several races due to erroneous team decisions.
According to that analysis, if Leclerc had achieved the victories that slipped out of his hands, he would reach the Italian Grand Prix with 221 points, just 27 behind Max Verstappen. Currently, the difference is 80 points, as the Red Bull driver has 258, compared to 178 for Leclerc, who is tied with Sergio Pérez.
In addition to being criticized by the fans and pressured by the negative results in races in which the Italian team had clear conditions to win, Binotto understands that there are no reasons to make changes in the Maranello team, either in the factory or in the team that works directly in the races.
In the midst of the pressure that Ferrari came to their home race, Friday’s session started well, as Leclerc led the first free practice session, and Sainz did the same in the second practice. Can a red celebration on Sunday calm criticism of Ferrari and its director?
