Mattia Binotto: We don't start to finish second

Mattia Binotto says that Ferrari's only goal is to be the best, but that it may take a few years for them to catch and overtake Mercedes. Ferrari's most recent constructors' title came in 2008, but they have had to watch Red Bull and then Mercedes dominate the sport while they sit in second at best.

Ferrari were once again off the pace of Mercedes in 2019, winning just three races in the entire season as the Silver Arrows took control from the start.

Binotto told the Italian version of “To open a winning cycle and to be in front of Mercedes in a stable way, it will still take a few years,” Binotto is quoted by’s Italy edition.

“But I know that as Ferrari we always have a moral obligation to try every year. We therefore start with the goal of doing very well in 2020, we don’t start to finish second.

“However, if one has to say that he reaches that team maturity, that know-how, that sufficient and necessary running in all aspects to be dominant, it is fair to say that it is not done in two days.”
