Higher tyre pressures may be hurting Ferrari

Ferrari needs to “quickly” get to the bottom of its French GP struggle in order to be competitive in 2022. While Ferrari-powered Alfa Romeo and Haas also struggled, Binotto thinks the problem could be more tyre-related rather than simply the engine. “We had graining so we have to understand if it’s about overheating the tyres,” he said. Indeed, although Ferrari is now mainly focused on designing an all-new car for 2022, Charles Leclerc – sixteenth at the finish – said understanding the current problems is also important for next year. “I tried everything but we consumed the tyres too quickly,” he said.
