Ferrari admit French GP problems should have been addressed two years ago

The French Grand Prix proved to be a disastrous weekend for Ferrari, with both cars struggling and finishing outside of the points. Team boss Mattia Binotto says these problems weren't entirely unexpected though, with the team having been aware of them for two years.

Ferrari have admitted that they should have already addressed the problems that plagued them at the French Grand Prix, having first become aware of the issues two years ago.

The Italian outfit had a disastrous weekend at Paul Ricard. Both Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc struggled for pace and slipped backwards during the race, resulting in the drivers finishing in 11th and 16th respectively.

Team boss Mattia Binotto says that the team were expecting difficulties at the circuit after realising there were problems during the 2019 race weekend, despite Leclerc getting a podium result on that occasion.

"We knew this circuit would be difficult," Binotto told RacingNews365.com and other select media. "High-speed corners where you are putting a lot of energy into the tyres, hot conditions.

"If you are looking at two years ago again, we were really struggling here so I think that these are our car characteristics. It’s not a track that’s suiting us well.

"But in the end it’s two years ago we had the problem. We should have addressed it, it’s not yet the case so it’s why looking at the future is important to use to learn the lessons, to sort it."

Whilst tyre degradation was a problem for many drivers during the Grand Prix, Ferrari appeared to particularly struggle with this issue. Binotto thinks that this was one of the main reasons for their lack of pace and believes that the poor showing was not representative of the car's true performance.

"We have not been able to get the tyres working as we should have done and I think our performance was really struggling with the tyres," the Italian said.

"I don’t think it’s reflective of the true pace of the car or the performance itself but it’s something we need to learn and address, not in the immediate future but in the medium and long-term."
