Binotto has instructed Sainz to get another win before his 300th race. Now Ferrari has two race winners and they need the race-winning mentality to beat Red Bull in the championship that Ferrari was leading, but were overtaken by Red Bull because of multiple errors.

However, there is positivity in the Ferrari camp after Sainz’s victory, and that is exactly what Binotto expressed. “Very happy, very pleased! 150 Grand Prix to wait for it. Now I said you shouldn’t wait for another 150 for the next pole and the next win,” joked Binotto.

He added, “I think he’s a fantastic driver, he’s strong, certainly will give him further more confidence and now we have two drivers who can win, it’s the best we can have.”

“He certainly is as disappointed as we are because he was comfortably leading the race. Without the safety car, he would’ve certainly won and it would’ve been important for him knowing Max got problems today. So it’s frustrating, but it’s the way it is,” said Binotto.
