Distractions hurting Mercedes in 2021 says Binotto

Mercedes has fallen behind because of “distractions” rather than the improvement of title rival Red Bull’s Honda engines. That is the view of Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto, who rejects Mercedes’ argument that the newly-fitted Honda specification took a major leap forward at Paul Ricard. “Our GPS data shows that the performance of the Honda engine corresponds with its level at the start of the world championship,” the Italian said. Therefore, Binotto said he applauds the “great job” done by Red Bull so far in 2021. But Binotto also mentioned seven time world champion Lewis Hamilton, and the fact that Mercedes has “a driver who wasn’t confirmed until February 2021”.
