“Leclerc and Sainz the best couple in the World Cup”

Ferrari with the best driver duo of the 2022 F1 World Championship. It is the extreme synthesis of the passage to Ferrari contained in the usual annual letter that John Elkann wrote to the Exor shareholders, the “safe” financial holding of the Agnelli family. If 2021 was a “record” year for Ferrari Spa as the president of Exor defined it, on the sporting level the 2022 challenge is to be experienced but “the drivers have started the season well”.

“With five podium results and third place in the Constructors’ Championship”, writes Elkann in the passage of the letter dedicated to Ferrari, “the Formula 1 season has produced some encouraging signs”. The word “some” is the keystone: between the lines the concept, even obvious, that Scuderia Ferrari cannot be enough. In fact, the thought immediately goes further, when Elkann writes: “But now the company is focused on the 2022 challenge, aware that with Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz the Scuderia has the best pair of drivers on the starting grid, who have started the season well” . Team principal Mattia Binotto is not mentioned but the quality of the team is emphasized although this also means putting pressure, given the great expectations for 2022 that everyone had after the last two negative years. Leclerc and Sainz are leading the championship and not only the fans of the redhead are expecting victories and titles.

President Elkann’s gaze did not rest only on F1 but went further, praising Ferrari’s results in GT competitions: “Ferrari’s GT season was the best in its history, thanks to the World Drivers and Constructors’ titles in the WEC and with the victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans “, arrived in the Lmgte Pro category and in the Am category.” He also announced his eagerly awaited return to the top class of the WEC in 2023 with its Le Mans Hypercar (Lmh) program, and won a new audience of fans with the Ferrari Esports Series, which saw the participation of 35 thousand people across Europe “.
