According to the report of Sports car racingFerrari team boss Mattia Binotto explains the premise of the rally:
“As Ferrari, we are very disappointed as we believe there has been a clear regulatory violation of two Red Bulls walking on the yellow line when coming out of the hole. I thought it was not close, it was above the line and if you look at the intonation of the sports code it is saying cross but we made it clear in Turkey 2020 to avoid any discussion and if If you look at the racer’s note it’s shown on the right. ”
“So being on the track is a violation of the race director’s notes and I think each individual team has a duty and a duty to follow the notes of the race director. So for us it is something unclear and we are still seeking clarification from the FIA and we will be happy to have a response as soon as possible. ”
Red Bull, who claimed his fifth win of the 2022 season with a double podium at the Monaco GP, has now extended his lead in championship standings with a gap of 36 points against the Maranello-based team.

“Too many mistakes today in general” – Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc on disappointing Monaco Grand Prix
It’s another unfortunate home race for this Charles Leclerc Sunday in Monaco after Ferrari misfired the stop tactic, causing the 24-year-old driver to win the race.
According to the report of Sky Sports F1, Monegasque stresses that such material mistakes cannot be made in the future. He say:
“Sometimes mistakes can happen but overall there were too many mistakes today. Obviously in those conditions you’re a bit reliant on what the team can see because you don’t see what everyone else is doing with the intermediates, with the dry tyres. ”
Charles Leclerc added:
“I was asked questions about whether I wanted to go from middle to category and I said yes but not now, it will be a little later in the race. But I don’t understand what made us change our mind and move on with these intermediate things, I was mutilated and then stuck behind Carlos [Sainz]. There have been a lot of mistakes and we can’t afford to do that.”
With his win in Monaco, Sergio Perez is quickly closing in on Leclerc in Driver Ranking.
