F1 Unscripted with Heineken: From tifosi to Team Principal - Binotto on his favourite Ferrari moments
Mattia Binotto is living many a Ferrari fan's dream, having started out watching them win Grands Prix before joining the team as engineer in 1995, becoming Team Principal in 2019, and being in charge of their 1,000th Grand Prix at Mugello last weekend.
So who better to reveal his favourite Ferrari moments and look forward to what their future holds, after 25 years working at the Scuderia?
Speaking to David Coulthard – a driver who's no stranger to Ferrari, having had numerous memorable battles with Michael Schumacher – Binotto talks about the "luxury" of working in the V12 era with Ferrari as an engine technician and his favourite Ferrari wins – including last year's triumph at Monza with Charles Leclerc.
Binotto also had the "privilege" to work with seven-time champion Michael Schumacher, as he recounts his memories of Ferrari's dominant spell from 2000-2004.
"I grew with him... He was, in his attitude, as a leader, so demanding," describes Binotto of the German, who took five of his seven championships with Ferrari.
Finally, the Ferrari boss talks about the future of Ferrari with a bright squad of Driver Academy hopefuls, the signing of Carlos Sainz for 2021, and their chances of making it back to the top when the new regulations come into play in 2022.
