Ferrari principal Mattia Binotto says “far too many” years have passed without a Drivers’ title for the team, but 2021 won’t change that.
They may be arguably the most iconic team in Formula 1, but Ferrari haven’t lifted a trophy to show for it since back in 2008 when they secured the Constructors’ Championship.
And a Drivers’ Championship has also proved elusive since Kimi Raikkonen’s triumph in 2007.
Recently it had seemed like the Scuderia were starting to build themselves back up to re-enter the title fight. Sebastian Vettel pushed Lewis Hamilton close for most of the 2017 season, while the second half of the 2019 season brought three race wins, two courtesy of Charles Leclerc while Vettel took the chequered flag at the Singapore Grand Prix.
