Ferrari: New contracts with Leclerc and Sainz suspended / Formula 1

Ferrari drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz are below contract till the tip of 2024. The new head of the workforce, Fred Wasser, sees no cause to hurry to increase the contract early.


It was a shock even for Ferrari: in 2019, Monegasque Charles Leclerc signed a five-year contract with the world’s most well-known racing workforce till the tip of 2024. What Charles might not have identified on the time was that Ferrari needed to bear engine modifications ordered by the world motorsport affiliation FIA, which left the Italians and not using a GP victory in 2020 and 2021.

Carlos Sainz replaces Sebastian Vettel within the 2021 season. His deal was prematurely prolonged till the tip of 2024 in April 2022. Question: What occurs subsequent?

Many Tifosi dreamed of sooner or later Mick Schumacher driving a Ferrari like his father Michael. But nothing got here of it. Young Schumacher left Ferrari’s academy and is now a reserve driver at Mercedes-Benz.

And Mattia Binotto, who had talked about selling Schumacher, is now not at Ferrari, having been pushed by Fred Wasser.

The Frenchman exhibits a way of practicality in his early days at Ferrari. Asked about Ferrari’s mid-term appointment, he mentioned: “That subject is just not on our desk for the time being. If we begin with driver contracts, it might not be a superb begin to work right here.”

“We are totally targeted on reaching one of the best leads to the approaching season. When it involves pilots, I see it like a wedding – if the companions are glad, then it can final. Driver contracts are usually not a precedence at the moment. We have a superb relationship with the pilots and we’ve got sufficient time to speak about it later.”
