Harsh attack on the FIA Race Direction of Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto enraged at the way in which the safety car was handled behind which the 2022 Formula 1 Italian GP ended at the Monza circuit.
The controversy surrounding the final race of the Italian GP of Formula 1 2022which ended with the victory of Max Verstappen in front of Charles Leclerc and George Russell, with the F1 race on the Monza circuit but ended behind the Safety Car entered the track six laps earlier to have Ricciardo’s McLaren planted on the track removed from the track.
The controversial decision taken by the FIA Race Direction in fact, it dissatisfied all the spectators present in the Lombard plant who whistled loudly at the arrival of the cars under the checkered flag. But it’s not just the fans who blame the International Federation’s Race Direction for what happened in this sixteenth round of the F1 World Championship.
In fact, at the end of the race Ferrari also spoke harshly towards the FIA Clerk of the Course. In fact, the team principal of the Cavallino was live on TV, to the microphones of Sky Sport Mattia Binottodespite having emphasized that the decision made did not distort the race, he addressed heavy accusations against the men of the International Federation for how they managed the Safety Car after Ricciardo’s forced stop:
“Verstappen was very strong today, it was difficult to beat him. I would not speak of a fake race then. However it’s a shame because after Abu Dhabi there was a lot of talk about restarting the race as soon as possible and today the conditions were there – in fact, the number one of the Ferrari wall told those who asked if the management of the Safety Car had distorted the Monza race –. We don’t understand why they waited so long, there was no reason. The only reason I can imagine is that of security. It’s a real FIA sleep, I’m still not up to it even if they have changed a lot – finally, the team principal of the Maranello stable accused the Race Direction of not being up to the high level reached by F1 –. Formula 1 needs something else, an extra gear“.
A hard lunge therefore by Mattia Binotto who this time does not hold back and vent all his anger against a a decision that deprived his Ferrari of the chance to fight for a victory in Monza which now seemed impossible (with Leclerc 16 seconds away from the leader Verstappen) and of see both drivers on the podium in the home race with Sainz who was catching up on Russell who occupied the third position.
