According to the weather forecast, tomorrow it probably will be wet practice and qualifying sessions. Ferrari cars have been very fast last weeks, and according to Friday results of the team, it seems the aero update from Singapore also works at Sochi track. However, if it’s still wet then if Ferrari has a chance to perform the same strongly?
The Scuderia Ferrari principle Mattia Binotto couldn’t exactly predict tomorrow situation in quali, but emphasized that the balance of the car will play the key role, what is an advantage for the team in both ways.
"It can be quite different picture tomorrow compared that we’ve seen today. I don’t think anyone can really know right now what will be the situation and the performance of the teams tomorrow," – Binotto said.
"I think if you’ve got a good car, which is well balanced, you can be competitive. I think we should simply be focused on ourselves for making sure if the car is well balanced, which will be an advantage whatever it is – dry or wet. Let’s see, even if it’s wet it’s still a circuit with long straights and it’s still the circuit where drivers can make the difference."
Charles Leclerc also shared his opinion on wet sessions. The driver said Ferrari was quite fast in some wet sessions this year, and personally he likes such a weather. But at the same time, Charles pretty sure the rivals will be also strong in wet conditions. However, the driver has a positive attitude about the possible rain on Saturday and Sunday.
"I think we are pretty quick in some sessions this year in the wet, and I like the wet weather. So, hopefully it will be positive. But I expect Red Bull and Mercedes to be very strong in these conditions. So, it’s not easy, but will see how we are tomorrow if it’s raining," – Charles told.
