Leclerc explains just how important Mattia Binotto is to Ferrari

The battle between Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc has been intriguing in recent weeks, but the 22-year-old couldn't hide just how important Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto is. Leclerc is nine points ahead of his teammate in the drivers' standings with just four races remaining, starting in Mexico this weekend.

"He is a quiet person, which is important in an environment like Formula One, " as quoted by speed week.

"You are always excited, everything is so fast. It is therefore important to have a person around you that you can count on and that is quiet.

"As a boss, he pretends to be what he really is, and that's important too"

Ferrari have lost the constructors' championship to Mercedes but are over 200 points clear of their nearest competitor for third place Aston Martin Red Bull Racing.
