The Italian press, after Hungary: “Verstappen can stay three races at home”

From Italy they remember that no matter what, Verstappen will lead Singapore

The only thing that helps Ferrari keep dreaming is math options

The Italian press has reacted harshly to the 80-point lead in the World Cup with which Max Verstappen is going on vacation. Whatever happens, the Red Bull will remain in the lead, at least, until the end of September in Singapore and underlines the paradox that even if it remains at home for the next three races, no one is going to move it from this first square.

We review what the country’s leading newspapers are saying about Ferrari and what happened last weekend at the Hungarian Grand Prix:

The Gazzetta dello Sport: “Formula 1 is going on vacation and with it also Ferrari’s hopes of being world champion this year. Max can stay at home for the next three races in Belgium, Zandvoort and Monza and return to Singapore mathematically still with an advantage top of the World Cup. Obviously he won’t, it’s just a paradox.”

“On the other hand, it is a fact that after the success in Austria, which had revived the enthusiasm of Ferrari, in France and in Hungary, Leclerc scored only eight points against two victories for Max. Strategists were credited with a questionable choice yesterday. of tyres, although Mattia Binotto instead pointed the finger at the F1-75, which inexplicably did not perform as expected”.

Corriere dello Sport: “The Monegasque is already 80 points behind Verstappen in the World Championship, an advantage that has never been reversed in the history of Formula 1. For Leclerc, the dream of being world champion this year is very close to happening. The only thing that helps Ferrari keep dreaming is arithmetic, but for that you have to win the remaining nine races and wait.”

Corriere della Sera: “Binotto has to start modifying the wall. He is a good person and he gave confidence to the designers to dare and put a beautiful car on track. Regularly, faced with a mistake in strategy, he applies the same attitude and appears in front of microphones to try to explain intricacies that often escape us fans.

“Essentially, it’s about protecting those who, by virtue of their role, make the key decisions. Very specialized technicians, who have to deal with a lot of data. They are responsible for the strategy and there are many of them, divided into two units of communication. they are those who are next to the wall and also those who work in Maranello”.
