“A great dynamic between Charles and Carlos” – Formula 1 MD and former Ferrari man Ross Brawn is confident of Ferrari challenging Red Bull and Mercedes for podiums soon enough.
Ferrari has moved on from their disappointment of last season, a dismal P6 with zero wins. The duo of Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc are delivering the good, moving Ferrari up to P4, right behind McLaren. More importantly, the team looks good enough to take a few podiums this season, something that was a rarity in 2020.
Can you calculate this? 🤔🤩

And, as per former team boss Ross Brawn, Ferrari will soon be challenging the might of Red Bull and Mercedes. He is very impressed with the team chemistry between Sainz and Leclerc, something crucial in successful team management.
“With everything going on at the sharp end, it’s easy to overlook some of the other very good drives that were going on. Charles Leclerc delivered one of those.
“There’s no doubt the SF21 is a significantly better car than last year’s and Leclerc is getting every bit of pace out of it – and then some more – each time he gets in the car. It’s not going to take a lot more for Ferrari to be knocking at the door of the top two. And that’s quite remarkable given where they ended 2020.
“There’s also a great dynamic between Charles and Carlos [Sainz] right now and I don’t think you can underestimate the advantages of that. The co-operation and positiveness from their two drivers is helping drive them forward. And there’s no doubt that when the pair get the right car, both of them will take wins.”
