Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto says the 2019 driver line-up of Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc are the best in Formula 1.
Binotto, who has been promoted from his former role as technical director, called the duo “the best dream a team principal can have – they are the best drivers in Formula 1”.
Leclerc has joined after an impressive debut season for Sauber in 2018 and said: “I am extremely excited to start this new adventure. It has been a dream since childhood so it is a very emotional day for me.
“It is a very proud day for me. I’m not nervous. I think it is more an opportunity for me to be alongside Sebastian, who is such a champion, I can learn a lot. I am pretty sure it will be an amazing season. The key will be to work together but I am sure we will make it.”
Ferrari chief executive officer Louis Camilleri is also excited to see what the drivers can produce in this year’s SF90 car – named in honour of the team’s 90th anniversary.
He said: “Vettel remains as hungry as ever and I know he is totally devoted to achieving his and our ambitions and he knows the entire team will give him all their full-hearted support.
“Charles Leclerc – we are all tremendously excited to have him. His talent, maturity, race skill and speed was evident to all last year and we are sure great things await him in the future.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
