SINGAPORE – Charles Leclerc's Singapore Grand Prix pole position was something special for a fast-improving Ferrari, team boss Mattia Binotto said on Saturday.
After a disappointing first half of the Formula One season marked by near-misses, Ferrari and Leclerc have now racked up three poles in a row and are perfectly placed for a third successive victory.
"We knew that we brought here a new aero package in the right direction," Binotto told Sky Sports television.
"But even more I think for us it's important to know that we are developing the car in the right direction because that will be useful as well for next year," added the Swiss-born Italian.
"After the wins in Spa and Monza certainly there is a great boost in the team; everybody was coming here hoping to do something special and today at least we did it."
