that Carlos Sainz would hit in his first year at Ferrari so would hardly have One thought. Because Charles Leclerc is considered to be coming world champion, has always beaten his previous teammates in Formula 1 and is of course established at Ferrari - and yet Sainz has only 7.5 points less on the account as the Monegasse.

The Spaniard has probably got used to his new team as good as hardly any other driver this season. This is also a reason why Ferrari has been ranked in the designers since Mexico and has overtaken McLaren.

"There is no doubt that it is important for the constructor's rating to have two good drivers," says Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto. "And if you see the number of points that get Carlos, he is an important factor."

  Projecting the USMNT's World Cup Qualifying Squad After Nations League, Gold Cup Triumphs Aside from winning the trophies, the point of the Nations League and Gold was to determine who can help the U.S. qualify for the World Cup. So who were the big winners? View the original article to see embedded media.After winning two trophies, both at the expense of rival Mexico, the extended U.S. men's national team player pool has ample reason to feel quite good about everything. The Concacaf Nations League and Gold Cup triumphs were exercises in validation and momentum-building, and things couldn't have unfolded more productively for coach Gregg Berhalter over the course of the two competitions.

Because: In the direct competition, there is usually a driver that drops compared to the other. Daniel Ricciardo (105 points) would have similar many counters like teammate Lando Norris (150), then McLaren would probably be a bit more comfortable in third place, and Alphatauri is practically almost a one-man team with Pierre Gasly, when it comes to many points.

In the previous year, this was also for Ferrari, where Leclerc could get almost three times as many counters as teammate Sebastian Vettel, but Sainz meets his stable companion basically at eye level. "We have always knew that he is a very strong racer when we chose him for Ferrari," praises Bombotto.

"He has always got many points in the race and contributed many points for the designer's championship. And since the designer championship is one of our main objectives, that was very important to us," continues the team boss. "He beaten very well!"

also in Mexico Sainz had the actually better Pace as Leclerc, but had to give his position just before the end of the end of the end of the end of the end of the Leclerc himself.

The fact that Ferrari is in the struggle for rank three not farther forward, but Binotto makes a pitch pitch. Because in Monaco Leclerc could not tackle the race from the pole position, in Hungary he was involved in a startcrash.

"I would not blame Ricciardo [that McLaren threatens to lose the fight]," said Binotto. "That would be wrong."

Charles Leclerc: Since the beginning of 2020 it goes in the right direction .
last year Ferrari completed the Formula 1 season with 131 points (at 17 races) on a disappointing sixth place in the Design World Cup. This season is the team after 20 Grands Prix (two are still available) with 297.5 points on the third overall rank - 17.5 meter from McLaren . © Motorsport.com Motorsport Photo Although Scuderia 2021 could not see a victory yet, and so far was only four times on the podium.
