Horner Calls Out Overconfident Binotto

Ferrari have come under some criticism following the way in which they let their race implode in Hungary. The fact that they were aiming for no less than scoring a 1-2 prior to the race has been highlighted as well. Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has done the same while speaking to Motorsport   Link to poll: https://www.youtube.com/post/Ugkxoqcrx2dqXbxJSE73HYbEy9iUgnokETn3 0:00 - Horner Calls Out Overconfident Binotto 0:55 - Fast Feed I'm your host Dillon Shelley and first up on Formula World: Horner Calls Out Overconfident Binotto   Horner started off by revealing if he wants a closer battle for the championship with Ferrari   “There is not an ounce in me that wishes that. Last year it was a tough battle that lasted 22 Grands Prix. I'd rather not do that again”   He then gave his thoughts on Binotto being confident of a 1-2 before the Hungarian GP   “Even if we had won by a lap, I would have been careful”   He signed off by explaining why   “I would never say we're going to finish first and second in the next race. It's more about the way we race. We focus on the here and now and see the race as it comes”     Fast Feed   Andrew Shovlin, Mercedes' Trackside Engineering Director, explained that “the only way to do the one stop [in Hungary] was to go on a medium and a hard tyre” [Team Debrief]   “On both of those stints you'd need quite a lot of management to get to the finish”   “We tried the hards on Friday and it didn't have good grip”   Former F1 world champion Mika Hakkinen feels that “even when [Red Bull] hit problems they don’t panic. [They] just focus on recovering quickly” [Unibet]   “Max’s win was very impressive because he had to start 10th and work his way through the traffic”   “But he did everything he needed to and the team gave him the right strategy to take the win”   Retired F1 driver turned pundit Martin Brundle thinks that “the Ferrari team keep it tight and support each other on these reasonably frequent errors of late”   “But, however you paint it they somehow navigated a fast car from second and third on the grid to finish fourth and sixth [in Hungary]” [Sky F1]   Haas driver Kevin Magnussen explained that he was “a bit out of sequence with the early damage and there was a lot of tyre degradation and pit stops, which didn’t make it easy” [F1]   “It’s been a tricky weekend for us, but it has been a good learning weekend, continuing to understand the strengths and the weaknesses of the new package”     Is Mattia Binotto’s approach hurting the team?
