Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa, Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Räikkönen – have always been number one drivers at Ferrari for the vast majority of the last twenty years. Although Charles Leclerc originally arrived in Maranello to support Vettel in Monaco, things soon changed and it became clear to everyone that the team was already building itself on the young racer.
Many say the arrival of Carlos Sainz will not change the bottom-up order within the barn, but team boss Mattia Binotto has stated that his pilots will be treated equally.
“There’s nothing in Charles’ contract that he’s the team leader. The two riders will be able to fight freely on the track, ”the Italian expert said. “It’s important that they don’t hurt each other, that’s clear, but they’ll have equal opportunities, for sure, early in the season.”
However, this does not mean that we cannot expect team instructions. “The main priority, as I said before, is to collect as many points as possible. In some races, it may be important for the two pilots to help and make decisions that serve the interests of the team, ”Binotto added.
