Binotto insists Ferrari's victories are in the past

Ferrari are in the best form they've been in all season thanks to Charles Leclerc's back to back victories but Mattia Binotto has admitted that is in the past and they have no time to dwell on it.

Leclerc managed to hold off both Mercedes drivers, at the Belgian and Italian Grand Prix for his maiden F1 victories and Ferrari's first win of the season. Ferrari's victory at Monza signalled huge celebrations as the Scuderia had not won a home Grand Prix since 2010.

Despite joyous scenes amongst the crowd, Binotto admitted that it now in the past as they look forward to Singapore.

“Coming from back to back victories is a good feeling for the team and for our tifosi, but in reality these victories are already behind us and we are well aware that Singapore will present new challenges and a layout in which our car is not as strong as at other circuits," Binotto said in Ferrari's Singapore preview.

"We are bringing a few new parts there as part of our effort to close the gap to the competition, at a track that features predominantly slow speed corners. This race also sees the return of the Hypersoft tyre compound, which has not been used since the Canadian GP.

"All of this, together with the traditionally eventful close racing in between the barriers, on the city streets – conditions that both Sebastian and Charles love very much – will certainly make for a tough but exciting race weekend.”
